I've been having a problem with the VS for some time now. When Firefox opens a prompt (such as the where to download window) the other, usually the OK button, is blank until I press it.

Also like many others, I wish there was a background for the text fields in the explorer because the text is usually impossible to read when the window behind has light colors.

These aside, this is by far my favourite theme and I've been using it for years. Thanks!

So I know it's been a very long time since this theme was created.  But I wanted to let you know that Etched Icons from maxthemes is no longer available.  It seems that the website may have went under or changed.  This is the new link that you should link people to for the etched icons:

The YouTube Video is no longer available as well.

The Wallpaper, ExplorerFrames.dll and the Start Icon are still good to go.

You can find the icon here on dev just look it up as “etched icons for Win” and the vid on YouTube is no longer available becuz I deleted it LOL. I’m just too lazy to fix the links/updateDescription and don’t have the desire to do it. My apologys.

I was wondering if there is a way to fix the address bar:

So it looks more like this theme (Aero+):

I really love your theme... but I can't use it because I cant read anything in the address bar:( Is there a way I can change the font to black and give it a frosted white background??

Hey there, is it possible to change the color of the font in the title bar? Normal the color of the font is white, so sometimes you cant read the titlebar if the background is white, too.
All in all its a very good work, thank you a lot :)

I agree with you, when the window is on a white background the text isn't readable.
It could be interesting to dark the text or add a smooth dark shadow.

Amazing theme though!! :D
Adler22's avatar
yeah, a smoothy shadow would be very nice. Is it possible?

This is my favorite theme. I love how soft and unobtrusive it is. I used this for a long time at home and also have it installed at work.

I recently upgraded to Windows 10 at home and I'm just blown away with how ugly the Windows 10 default theme is.

Are you going to make styles for Windows 10? All of your theme work is amazing. I'd love to see your take on a better look for Windows 10.
