Diurnal W10

                  Version for Build 1511, Build 1607, Build 1703 and Build 1803.
                  Run "winver" from the start menu to check what build you're on.
Make a system restore point before installing.

Diurnal is meant to be the complete opposite of Nocturnal, something more website and UI friendly, I tried to keep it as close to default W10 [cause default is p nice tbh] while also being minimal, monochrome and easy to add more color to.
I also just really wanted to try making a light setup.

Included is:
                          Diurnal VS
                          Firefox CSS
                          Homepage (see it here)
                          A registry entry to overwrite and hide titlebar font.
                          Quick Access Icons and how to change them.

                          Taskbar Shadow.                        

    Required 🔮

                 Press Alt+Shift+P to hide the bottom status pane in Explorer.
                 Install OldNewExplorer - you only need to check use command bar and hide up button.
                 If you use Classic Shell, go into the Classic Explorer settings and disable "Show status bar" to remove the second status bar it makes.

    Other things used 🌐

                 AutoHotKey scripts to remove titlebar and taskbar icons, more info on the ricing guide
                 Install Classic Shell to change the taskbar color (import the XML file included).
                 Install all the fonts included, may need to restart for them to install 100%.
                 Install Mactype for the font rendering to look much better.
                 Follow this guide to remove the language indicator.

    How to use 🍙

                On Build 1607/1703/1709/1803:
                •  Make a system restore point!
                •  Install Blank.ttf, run Blank.reg.
                •  Copy the theme folder contents directly to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes.
                •  Patch your system using UltraUXThemePatcher.
                •  Open Settings > Personalization > Themes > Select the theme.               

               Optional (just for the font):

               •  Install all the fonts included, may need to restart your PC for them to work.
               •  Install WinAero, only change the Advanced Appearance > Fonts section.
               •  Install Mactype for the font rendering to look much better.

Hi, beautiful theme! Where is xml file to use for Classic Shell? I didn't find it inside your zip file. Thanks
chloechantelle's avatar
It should be included, otherwise the only thing I would of changed in Classic Shell is set the taskbar color to black.
can I use this on 1803? or any plans to support it in that matter?
chloechantelle's avatar
I'd suggest against it to be safe, once I get 1803 I'll be able to test and see if they need updating.

The user who created the icons is selling them via Twitter.

you know,i don't know which version to read in winver, the "version" or "OS Build" im thinking os build,or am i dumb? idk lol help an educated fellow.
chloechantelle's avatar
Read the Version number, it'll probably be one of the above, unless you installed a fresh version of W10.
chloechantelle's avatar
Are you using a Firefox theme? If not, I'd suggest using one and editing it's colors to match Diurnal.
Hi! Thank you for your reply. I'm now using Stylish and it works fine with your theme. Thanks :)
I have another question, when I click/ hover on "minimize" or "close" button, I still can see the default buttons. How to hide them?
Thank you again!
chloechantelle's avatar
Not too sure why that's happening, is your DPI set to 100%?
Yes. I got this kind of bug in Firefox only, otherwise it works awesome :)
chloechantelle's avatar
That's not the Visual Style that's Firefox, it messes w/ the titlebar buttons, it should be fine if you enable the Titlebar in the Customize menu of Firefox.
Thank you for your help, it was precious. I fixed it! keep up the amazing work please <3
Looks great! May I ask how you did it? I made my own theme for windows 7 with ave's windows 7 style builder, but I'm lost without it for windows 10. Is their a similar program for windows 10, or any starter guide for making them?
chloechantelle's avatar
It still works for Windows 10, you need the beta version to make them.
