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.
                 Icons

    How to use 🍙

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?
Larzmango's avatar
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).

Very nice theme, however i cant see any progress bars color:

I'm on windows 10 build 1809

Thank you
chloechantelle's avatar
That's how the progress bars are suppose to look.
Side note: also install OldNewExplorer.

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.

Is there no way to purchase this theme without having to do the whole DA points thing? I don't want to purchase points from DA. I just want to get the theme. 
chloechantelle's avatar
You can download the theme for free or purchase it, purchasing is optional.

Hey Chloe, so I tried this for a bit but was not able to get it to work. I recently had to do a fresh install of my Windows machine so I figured I'd give it another go but I can't seem to get any of the themes I'm downloading to work. I've already installed the UX Patcher etc but and put the files in both the C Windows Resources Theme folder and also in the Username AppData Local Microsoft Windows Resource Theme folder.... is there something I'm doin wrong here?
chloechantelle's avatar
You only need to move the folder and .theme file to C:/Windows/Resources/Themes. Make sure the .theme file is outside the themes folder, alongside aero.theme etc, and that your using the latest version of UltraUx.
