Aero White Taskbar Theme for Windows 10 rtm



This is an Aero theme for Windows 10 RTM Build 10240 that have white start menu and white taskbar.

Also I have modify some images like the blue hover at the left of the window at the Navigation pane, as also the position of the vertical separator, not having any space between it and the blue hover at the left of the window at the Navigation pane, the close, maximise and minimise buttons etc etc  following the microsoft's style of designing, but under a personal view.

Same also to Taskbar we have blue hovers etc

Transparency to the white Taskbar, is given and control from freeware applications existed to Deviant Art.

Ribbon to Eplorer's window disabled as seen to the screen-shots, by using the free OldNewExplorer utility.

There 2 screen-shots , to the upper is without AeroGlass utility, the down has AeroGlass (transparency to window borders).

Bugs : From what I have seen to latest version of Opera the web adress Text dissapear to the Addressbar section, while the old good portable version of Opera appear and work ok.

But this bug is either a microsoft failure as none of the microsoft 'Ease of Access Themes' cooperating with the Addressbar Text of the latest build of Opera, or either the designers of Opera, or of both parts.

So either use opera portable, or other kind of web explorer, or use Aero theme.


Many MANY thanks to PandaX FOR THE RESPOND and help.
