The fact that it's Windos Vista triggers me. You were the only one brave enough to replicate it.

Whenever I hover my mouse over the program buttons (Those buttons on the taskbar) it has the regular blue combined with the color of the program. Please fix it!!!

It is supposed to be like that. Windows 7/8/8.1 introduced progress bars on the taskbar buttons. I had to make the buttons semi transparent for those progress bars to be visible.

I know it's natural, but is there a way to show only blue? Or at least make an alternate version without blue.

though I have been waiting to get an update for this to work on windows 8.1, I decided to downgrade (more like upgrade) back to windows 8... that being said. there is still some strange issue with the task bar when trying to use the rounded vista theme... if you like, I could post a screen shot to show you what I mean.

Can you make this for 8.1?    The title bar font thing isn`t your fault though.   I tried aero glass which though can fix the window colour on font glitch on the title bars.     ;)

Microsoft rearranged the jumplist code to a different area of their windows 8.1 theme. This is why I have to manually re-import everything into a new windows 8.1 template theme.

This is a great theme except the taskbar is blue and the minimize, maximize and close buttons are in the wrong place.Can you fix that?

SimplexDesignsART Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
the whole theme color changes based on the hue you choose in the personalization window. Its blue in the screenshot since it was made way before aero glass was made for windows 8. As for the caption buttons, they are in the same place they have always been in since forever in windows...

hi, just want to say that you are completely amazing with these themes. however, would it be possible for you to make this theme available for windows 8.1? reason being is that my little brother is going to be upgrading to windows 8, and from there 8.1, but he would like it to be like windows vista. so to test this, I was trying to see how it worked on my version of 8.1... so far it works fairly well... there are however a few glaring flaws. on is that in the rounded mode, the middle of the taskbar doesn't look like the vista bar, it looks like its still from windows 8. and in the square mode, the  minimize, maximize/restore down, and close buttons don't seem to be in the right places... one observed flaw I see is that in both modes, the start button seems to be a bit too far down (likely because I am using classic shell rather then the program you would like us to have) other then that, everything seem to be running very well.

please contact me as soon as you can, thank you, and have a good time.

I havent been following the changes in 8.1 msstyle as of yet, but is it too hard to port over?

Busy thinking of new algorithms for my application... if you heard: www.betaarchive.com/forum/view…

SimplexDesignsART Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
They removed the start menu graphics and settings for it from the msstyle. They made it so that the jumplist uses parts of that area now. So I will have to slowly remove the required items and input the new settings from 8.1. As of right now, Im working on a new 8.1 theme first before I start porting my older themes.
