Check out Maverick 10 - Windows 10 Theme Pack: gumroad.com/l/tZLHq




description

Yes... it's here at last! Maverick brings you the Ubuntu look to your Windows 8.1 setup. Finally you can enjoy the orange and dark grey style with this redesigned theme that mixes the best from Ubuntu with flat clean elements giving a beautiful and modern look to your PC.
Check this Screenshot for a detailed view of the theme!
Also don't forget to check out Maverick 8.1 light for Windows 8.1 as well!

how to

• create a Restore Point using System Restore (safety first!)
• patch Windows so you can use 3rd party themes using this tool: uxstyle.com
• install the fonts in the Resources\Fonts folder
• install the theme by copying the content of the Theme folder in "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\"
• apply the theme from the Personalize panel
• apply the registry settings by running the maverick_8_1_window_metrics.reg file in the Window Metrics folder
• remove the hover glow of the taskbar buttons: System>Advanced Settings>Performance Settings>uncheck Animations in the taskbar
• restart Windows and...
• enjoy using the theme!
OPTIONAL! narrow vertical taskbar: use 7+ Taskbar Tweaker. Right click on the tray icon>advanced settings and set the no_width_limit = 1
 OPTIONAL! make windows explorer look cool: use OldNewExplorer! Check the option: Use command bar instead of Ribbon.
• CAUTION! the theme only works at default Windows dpi/scale level!

what you get

one awesome Windows themes: folder Theme
one matching windows cursor scheme: folder Resources\Cursors
one amazing wallpaper: folder Resources\Wallpapers
• matching PotPlayer skin: folder Resources\Skins
menu text color fix for Firefox and Thunderbird: available here

• initial release of the visual style.

known bugs

• the theme works only using the default windows dpi(96dpi)/scale(100%) level.
 dark text on dark background in the explorer breadcrumbs drop down menu. Unfortunately there's no way to fix this without braking other more important elements in the theme. Thank you Microshit!

check this out!

This is a Windows 8.1 theme and it's free. Just click the Download button above!

You also commented on my Maverick 10 Themes. So what Windows are you using after all, 10 or 8.1?

the best theme that I encountered. I have searched for many themes, and when I found this theme I immediately liked it. Unfortunately, there is only one drawback of this theme. less color from the drop-down menu. but this is enough, thanks for the theme

I have a problem with the title-captions from non-explorer-windows.
The text has the same color as the unfocused title bar when the window is focused and the title bar has another color. (see in picture)
How can I fix this?

I don't have Windows 8 anymore so I have way to test this but as I remember that is the normal behavior.

But in the screenshots there is the "Computer" in two different colors..?

I'm not sure what your problem is because I can't tell from that screenshot you sent me, but here's a screenshot of the theme in action: Maverick 8.1 SS
That's how it should look like on your end as well. Make sure you're on Windows 8.1 and that you don't use other customizing software that might conflict with the Windows theme.

Just click the big download button on the right. There's no payment involved. This theme is free. But make sure you have Windows 8.1 installed not Windows 10.
Enjoy!
