24/08/2018
Applied theme on taskbar and start button right click context menus


How to:
Create a system restore point!!!
Patch your system using UltraUXThemePatcher
Copy contents in the theme folder to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
Open Settings > Personalization > Themes. Select Matte Dark or Matte Light
Install OldNewExplorer (Configuration) to remove the ribbon.
Cleaner address bar: Blank It
You may disable wide context menus and apply other tweaks using winaero
Use Alt+Shift+P and Alt+P to toggle the details pane and preview pane respectively.

Theme Mods:

Note:
For dark themes Windows 10 loads defaults from
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\DefaultColors]
after every lock/sleep/hibernate/crash.
Make a backup of that key, take ownership of it, and then delete that whole key (defaultcolors)

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.

"Prevent automatic updates

You should also do this w/ your drivers as updating both W10 and your drivers has been known to cause problems.

When updating make sure you make a system restore point prior to installing the update, uninstall UxStyle/UltraUXThemePatcher, disable the theme you're using, and remove Mactype from startup. Can't be too careful w/ the last few big W10 builds." www.ricing.chloechantelle.com/…


Enjoy!


Appreciation:
Thanks a lot devillnside for the tremendous help!



Thanks!

Hello, could someone help me with a "problem" ??
This theme is wonderful, but unfortunately I am unable to use the icons.
I have 2 users on my computer, but when I install the icons on my user, it ends up changing some icons on the other user.

Is there any way to install them only on my user ??

thankful

That explains it. The small icon design in the nav pane supports dpi settings up 175%. That's is the maximum I could emulate on my pc.

Hello, thank you very much for the answer, I apologize for taking your time with this.
I was able to figure out the problem, I need to get the privileges of the DLLs manually, and I did not do that ..
It was enough to make the whole theme work, and perfectly!
Thank you so much, your work is incredible!

Try running the patcher as administrator.
Also there are some YouTube videos showing how to install custom themes.
