Break out the patcher...
Decided to make a new base theme because new year and all that, thus this took a while after the screenshot.
Hoping to do a dark version.

Supported builds: 1703,1709,1803,1809.
To determine what build you're on, run 'winver' from the start menu.

Updates:
Added some other colors.


2.Patch your system using ultraUXThemePatcher: www.syssel.net/hoefs/software_…

Sometimes the patcher may fail to patch your system. Uninstall it and take ownership of the following files in C:\Windows\System32
uxtheme.dll, UXInit.dll and themeui.dll. You may use this: www.howtogeek.com/howto/window…
Install the patcher again

3.Copy contents in the theme folder to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes

4.Select and apply theme from Personalization.

Note: Switch to default theme and uninstall patcher before major Windows 10 update.

I only made a few icons, that's where the creativity ended :)
I could pack them with the rest of the windows icons if that works for you.

What Windows 10 build are you using? For example it doesn't support the dark mode for 1809

1809, but it's light mode.

It happens if you have enable glass on navigation bar selected in old new explorer.

That's strange because am using 1809. I used a fill color instead of an image for the navigation bar, don't know if that's the reason. Am gonna make some changes and get back to you.

Nice work, I really like the glyph icons in the toolbar. Having so much blue is brave but could work with a proper wallpaper combo
