HOW TO INSTALL AND USE WINDOWS THEMES GUIDE

HOW TO INSTALL AND USE WINDOWS THEMES GUIDE

INTRODUCTION Hey guys, in case you're new to Custom Windows Themes, here is some information that you might find useful and a guide explaining how to install and use a custom theme. If you're in a hurry, jump ahead to the HOW-TO GUIDE below. The first thing you have to understand is that Custom Windows themes apply only to Win32/classic apps that inherit the Windows UI and don't have a skinning system of their own like for example Winamp (a media player that uses its own skins) or the Microsoft Office apps (that have their own custom user interface). So in order to style the titlebar and caption buttons of UWP/modern apps (like the Settings panel, Calculator, Windows Mail, Calendar, etc.) I've created matching Curtains styles for each theme which you can find in the Matching Extras section of the included README file. If you're into Dark Themes, then you have to understand that these come in two flavors: Dark Mode compatible themes and Full Forced Dark Themes. The first category only

Thanks for the :+fav: and :+devwatch: !

Thanks for the latest fave Allan! I appreciate it. :)

You are welcome. Appears to be a great theme bundle.

It's so great to meet themers, skinners and desktop artists in general. People you've missed because DA is - or, rather, WAS - so full of talented people you couldn't catch up fast enough.

So good to know YOU, Allan, through spiraloso's excellent desktop customization compilations. We are an endagered species and we need to stay together.

You're welcome.


I would love to comment once again but it'll be a copy-paste of what I've already written in your other poll.


Also, I've written a Message to the Team here to let them know of our situation. Right now I think the Design category needs to be filled up, know what I mean?

I haven't heard from the da-team but it's also been the holidays so I respect that. I don't think I'll ever get a reply however. So that me thinking that the Design category most probably fits for now. Let's see how they like them apples. Or, I don't know. :shrug: rvmp

In all seriousness I don't think branching out from deviantart is any solution - it'll only bring too many situations where someone is unavailable to help or has us in a stronghold - more than dA. Owning the servers and having to pay for a domain.
