Mercurian
Theme for Windows 10 RS2-RS4 Builds & RS5 Build 1809

Firstly, a huge shout out to DarkKnight2264 aka Dark Knight @ virtual customs for going out of his way to port the theme to RS5.
Without his effort, the RS5 edition most like wouldn't exist.
Thanks a mil mate.

How To
You'll need your system patched with UXThemePatcher

UltraUXThemePatcher:
www.syssel.net/hoefs/software_…

You'll also need 'StartIsBack' (check the 'SIB Settings' screenshots included in the zip, for theme specific settings in StartIsBack), to apply the start menu
& taskbar style as well as
 'OldNewExplorer' for windows explorer to look exactly like it is in the screenshot. 
Installation:
(The RS2-RS4 theme & the RS5 theme are each in their respective folders.)

a.Extract the contents of the 'Theme' folder & copy them to: 
C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
 
b.Use the 'Add Personalize Classic' registry file in the zip to add option to desktop right click menu. 
c.From right click menu go to: 
Personalize(classic) >Theme settings 
& select the theme. 

Optional:
Aero Glass is recommended with this theme.

Link to Aero Glass with GUI for RS2-RS4 versions:
(Download the version that is relevant to your OS)
www.virtualcustoms.net/showthr…

Aero Glass for RS5 1809:
virtualcustoms.net/showthread.…

Download the zip from the link above & extract the DWMGlass.dll.
Download & run the RS4 installer & complete the installation.
A compatibility error message will pop up, close it.
Replace the DWMGlass.dll inside the Aero Glass installation folder with the one you downloaded and you're done

Extras:

Mercurian Logon/Lockscreens in 1920x1080 & 2560x1440 resolutions.

Enjoy.

hello, im looking for someone who can make a request of mine.
I want a theme for my windows, dont think it will exist already
Do you take requests?

If so, i have an idea for an Wii (classic) Theme, the openings screen of the Wii. Should not be that difficult i guess, there are only 3 different objects.
let me know if you can or are willing to make it, or where i can ask it 

tkx

Decided to theme out my Win 7 as I had done years ago and was looking for a decent dark theme and found your excellent, beautiful themes.  Way better than WB!  My system is patched with the utilities you recommended and everything loads fine like the start orb, but my Nav Bar back/fwd buttons in Explorer are not changing with any theme I've tried.  Is there something I still need to do or a fix for this issue?  Thanks!

No, I had WB 10 installed and just couldn't find a theme I liked, so I removed it and decided to do the patching and manual install of styles instead.  I tried a system file repair to see if those buttons were damaged, but they still don't change.
