W10 Day and Night Visual Styles

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

Day ☀️

- is a pretty vanilla but comfy light theme that still works with the custom colors but gives more color variation in explorer and removes bottom/side borders, kept it pretty monchrome to not clash w/ W10 apps and settings windows. Also includes W10D V2 which can be previewed here. 

Night 🌙

- is a dark theme to meld with the "dark" W10 theme you can enable, tried to keep it minimal but still match the dark windows.

Includes 📦

                 A Rainmeter skin to show a shadow under your taskbar.
                 The Quick Access icon and how to change it.
                 A registry entry to overwrite titlebar font, install the font, run the .reg file and log off and back on to apply, thanks to neiio for that.

    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.

Nice ..gracias amigos


Awesome theme!

I wish we could have a demo version for, say, one week to try it out. It could then become unavailable but would let us make sure that it works properly with our Windows builds. I have downloaded many themes but most of them didn't work properly. Eventually I landed on Matte style which I could download for free and now I'm going to donate to the developer. This is the best way, IMHO but please consider making at least a time-limited demo. Your style looks very cool!

Can someone tell how to uninstall the bland fonts and the registry install please?

Sorry for stupid comment, but have no clue how to install the theme :) Can someone help me? PS. I have installed font and font.reg, copy theme folder to windows theme directory, of course patched with UltraUX... but... I dont see a composition on properties page.


Restart your laptop

Hi, I installed the theme and it works perfectly, but the blank.reg seems to not work, it shows a bold font, can you help me?

I managed to install the theme perfectly, however, apps like Spotify and Steam show two white pixels at the top-right of their respective windows that I can't seem to get rid of (Running theme on 1809).

How can I change my own font for these themes?
chloechantelle's avatar
Using WinAeroTweaker.

How do you show only the time and not the date in your taskbar? Not the one with small icons
chloechantelle's avatar
If I remember correctly it's the taskbar height, so either use this VS (or another that adjusts the taskbar height) or change your taskbar to small icons.

Does the 1803 version work with the new 1809 windows update?
