Placebo X for Windows 10 by niivu Placebo X for Windows 10 by niivu
Placebo is back, with a brand new look!  Redesigned from top to bottom.
Two completely new styles based on the original work. 
This is not a strict port of the Win7 theme, rather an extension of it.

 Compatible with = (1703,1709,1803 & *1809) =
I have a frequently asked question! Guide To Installing Windows 10 Themes

FEATURES
100 DPI only.
Dark Modes *1809 Required
Icon iPack for easy icon installation.  Vertex iPack

Updates:
2018-12-14 Fixed Language Indicator color bug
2019-01-13 Other small fixes

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).

Looking forward to your comments and faves! Huggle!

I have this problem when I try to search in StartIsBack++

I also encountered a glitch where the Minimize, Maximize & Close buttons are showing the Arc themed buttons, and not the Placebo X design. I fixed this by scaling to 100% then I scaled back to 150% or to the default scale.

Also the "Color" in Reboot/Restart animation, stays on the default Blue Color of Windows 10 and not the color that I chose in the Settings.

I hope there's plans for Dark Modes in 1803, since I can't choose to upgrade due to limited internet data and the unavailability of the 1809 update itself. I could force upgrade using a program by Microsoft, but limited internet data still stops me.

Thanks for that. Hey, Just one question: Why the taskbar don't change at all? because mine is still the same. Change all style but not the taskbar. Any idea?

You need to use StartIsBack for the taskbar and startmenu to change.

Placebo is such a good theme, and I always had a hard time picking a favorite among the original versions. I think I mostly used the gray one, but Kitsch is fantastic too! And I just love the fancy taskbar on these! Thanks for bringing Placebo greatness to Win10! :) 

Having one bug though.. tray notification text for volume mixer/language switcher/network seems to be some default system one instead of Segoe UI or similar? i.imgur.com/vfCgFHE.png

Are you familiar with editing a VS?  If not it can be quite complicated.  But Virtualcustoms.net is a great place to get info on it.

There's WindowsStyleBuilder.  It's the most common graphic tool to work on them.  Also there's a freeware editor msstyleEditor - github.com/nptr/msstyleEditor

I wonder if there's going to be a new longhorn version that's remade. I'm using one of the royal inspirats old versions since i still had it in my archive of various files. And another longhorn theme from another dood named sagorpirbd but it feels bad that hes inactive.

also I might just use the Black/Light theme since it has an old vibe while still being an elegant looking interface. and about that taskbar, the gradient usage in the buttons feels just like the 10 pro edition one that you made which I liked.
