Q: What is Base?
A: Base is a theme made for Windows 8.1
Q: How do I apply the StartIsBack Skin?
A: within the 'base' folder, take 'base.msstyle' and put it into the StartIsBack skins folder
Q: Hey! This theme has weird jump list problems and titlebar color! I'm using Windows 8.1
A: This theme does not work with windows 8.1 yet. I'm currently waiting for a way to solve the titlebar issue.
Q: Help! The theme isn't applying and I am getting a grey basic theme!
A: Make sure to patch/override your uxtheme.dll file using UXStyle or UXtheme Ultra patcher.
Q: Will there be a windows 7 version?
A: Probably not, since I no longer have Windows 7 on any PC
Q: Will there be other colors?
A: Probably yes. There is a white alternate version here: fav.me/d64h5fl
Q: The up arrow icon is so ugly, why don't you change it?
A: I can't, you would need to modify your system to do this
