:faq: Guide To Installing Windows 10 Themes
 
--------------------------

This theme is a combination and inspired from some of the best and my personal favorite themes.  SEDA for Windows and ARC/Matcha for Linux.
Green minimal goodness with just the right balance of dark mixed in.  I hope you enjoy it!  :peace:

FEATURES
hiDPI support for those on larger screens
Dark Explorer Mode for those on 1809 version of Windows.
LightMode Taskbar for Build 1903.
Icon iPack for easy icon installation.  Matcha iPACK

OldNewExplorer Configuration.  

ONE Configuration by niivu


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 San Francisco Fonts for Windows 10 with MacType installed.

CREDITS TO unisira & horst3180 for the inspiration!
Looking forward to your comments and faves! :huggle:

Yeah it says so in the description.  Since it's no longer being maintained this is an option.

Is that normal that by example the google chrome window isn't affected by the theme effect ?

Yes but there is a fix.

1. Right click on your Chrome/Chromium shortcut and open Properties

2. Copy the following and paste at the end of the Target field (after chrome.exe):

-disable-windows10-custom-titlebar

3. Click OK to save the change.

I'm wondering why my file explorer still looks like the default one when I followed all of the instructions, any advice with that? Also, cool theme by the way I'm enjoying it!

I am not getting dark explorer. I am on 1809 and even deleting [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\DefaultColors]  didn't bring the dark mode.

You can also use Tclock light for a more personalized clock appearance.
