Hey! I've been using your theme on my laptop and desktop for a while, but for some reason on my desktop I can't get my right click options font to change (explorer fonts change just fine). But when I disable the theme I can get custom fonts working everywhere. Is there something I can do to get the fonts to change when the theme is applied? Anyway love your work by far the best looking win10 theme out there!

Fixed- had to re download the file

your stuff is still inclear and not easy to install!

in one of the files/folders, "QA Icons" theres a notepad file called "how to install"
"pastebin.com/CL7HyL3V

Go to line 124
Create a system restore point
Follow instructions"

there is NOTHING at that pastebin!!! it just redirects to your website!
So where the hell is line 124??????
how am i meant to continue the installation guide if i cannot follow it?

This is by far one of the most unintuitive install guides iv ever seen in my life.

You really need to make a step by step, in order install guide. this is just all jumbled everywhere, its imposbille to follow, half the stay you have writtin there, just isnt there at all

Glad you fixed your issue friend, the instructions are fine as everyone who can read correctly has been able to follow them.
I don't know how more obvious I can be than writing requires and how to use in bold.

So from what I can gather, I'm pretty much screwed using any 3rd party themes if I regularly use MS Office, right? I've tried several from various developers, and every time there are always unwanted changes to my documents when I open the file. Just making sure before I give up and go back to the sucky default windows themes.

:iconchloechantelle:
chloechantelle Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2019
There won't be changes to your documents, simply that the theme will try to theme your MS Office apps and won't do it correctly.
If you use MS Office frequently use a light theme, or switch the theme off when you work.

Hello chlochantelle,
 just installed and everything looks amazing except that i cant get my drive icons to look as sleek as you but thank you I really appreciate you providing this work.
My only comment is that for icons of stuff that is open like for example if chrome is open yet im somewhere else in default theme there would be a color at the bottom of the taskbar indicating this but for me this is gone, any idea if this is fixable?
Thanks again <3

Thanks

It does, but it still changes all the background colors of all the apps. In 1809 should be able to make only the explorer dark

You missed up somewhere, I would say you're using a third party app to change the background of Explorer (QtTabBar, Classic Shell?).

hey chloe, i love your work but i've tackled this issue for months now. my minimize, maximize, exit button are not clear and not the same as the designs in the screenshots. Would you be able to help me with which part i screwed up? I would appreciate the help. thanks! happy happy happy

if you watch carefully the buttons are actually there, they're just color black which makes it difficult to use.

But you got a solution to get rid of the blank boxes in the Spotify desktop overlay (it is next to the volume pop up when you have spotify open)? ( same as the one in the clock)
