I have a frequently asked question! Guide To Installing Windows 10 Themes

FEATURES
hiDPI support for those on larger screens (except for ARC-Void)
Light or Dark Menu modes
Icon iPack for easy icon installation.  Arc iPacks

UPDATES
2018-11-25 UPDATE 4 - Fix for Treeview in dark versions. ;)
2018-11-21 UPDATE 3 - Now Includes Style for Dark Explorer Mode (*1809 Required)
2018-11-20 Updates to the StartButton and Tray icons as per requests. :P
2018-11-14 Fixed some colors in the details pane.

For themes Windows 10 loads default colors from
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\DefaultColors] 
after every lock/sleep/hibernate/crash. 

Make a backup of that key in regedit, take ownership of it, and then delete that whole key (defualtcolors). 

P.S.  The font in the preview is Muli with MacType installed.

Yikes, thanks for the heads up mate.  I've seen that happening lately with other users works here as well.  I've been reporting them but they seem to be popping up.

ARC X Flatabulous - Dark Mode theme with NeXuS dock and T-Clock, showing Firefox with customized Shadowfox theme, Dark Reader, and modified Tree Style Tabs sidebar which expands on mouseover to show a full list of nested tabs and titles.

Still a few Firefox colour tweaks needed but I like it even as it is.

Hello, I love your Arc Void theme and had a couple of questions regarding it:
- How did you get the arrow buttons to look the way they do in the image above, instead of the Windows default?

- Is there any way, or do you plan to, bring back the default Windows Start icon? While I love the theme, I personally prefer the Windows Start icon, so I was wondering if there was a way to revert it back.

- The Windows Start icon is different if you have multiple monitors and use the Arc Void theme. My primary monitor shows a filled circle for the Windows Start icon, and my secondary monitor shows a 3x3 square with circles. (which appears as the Start icon on both monitors using any of the other Arc themes)

- It's hard to differentiate windows from one another due to the title bars lacking any kind of drop shadow or different colors.

- Font colors in window previews is dark grey instead of white, making text extremely hard to see and read.

- I've noticed a few different icons/default icons for the Arc Void theme compared to the other    Arc themes, such as:
    - Navigation bar splitters being the default > instead of / unlike the other Arc themes
    - Search bar not having the X icon
    - "Show hidden icons" button
    - Checkboxes using default checkmarks instead of a square outline unlike the other themes

  Is this intentional, and is there any way to use the updated icons from your other Arc themes    instead, or the Windows default?

Thanks for making an awesome theme, and I hope you'll update your Arc Void theme and add Dark Mode support for it too, as it helps multiple programs (like MS Office) not have contrasting colors.

It's personally my favourite theme because of the rounded corners and simple Mac-like dull-colored window buttons, so keep up the great work!

The theme doesn't let me use the "Preview Pane" and anytime I use it and try to go to any folder it crashes my File Explorer. Any suggestions on how to fix it?

Thank you, I love these so much! My absolute favourite is the Void theme, but it has the issue where MS Office apps have a dark page background :( Office is kind of mission critical for me... I don't suppose there's any chance we could get a dark mode (1809) version of Void to get around it?

Hi, I really like the look of this theme but am unable to get it to work.

I ran UltraUXPatcher.

The background changes but not the programs like file explorer etc.

how to fix?

You may need to run the patcher again to see if it was successful or not.  If not you may have to take ownership of files as described in the guide.  Also double check to make sure you have put the theme folder in the proper location.

There's not much I can do.  Is it just my theme not working or all themes in general?  Then obviously you're missing a step or your system isn't patched correctly.

give me some themes to test that are working for 1809 (build 17763.292) i've personally taken full user access for those files to allow moving them. the only point it could fail is ux not moving the files properly and being unable to overwrite them. if that'd be the case i'd find it useful to know where to get the 2 files needed (uxinit.dll and themeui.dll)

Something i find odd is how microsoft made windows have 3 theme folders all in different places... and what i find more odd is how i assumed i had to put the theme into the one on %localappdata%, regardless of me doing it right the first time on 1803 only the day before...

Have you re-installed the patcher properly?  You may rerun it to see if the files have been patched or not.

I checked all the files, personally switched them back to default, then re-patched double checkign i used admin with ultra ux, it worked fine, it is patched for sure, but the theme still looks odd and completely broken.

Mind you i checked and the colors do slightly change, but it gets a border right, left, and bottom of the window, things randomly turn white when i'm trying the dark 1809 version, the theme doesn't work like normal, and is similar to how it looks missing files on 1803
