  1. This will get you started, copy and save to a text file, rename extension to .reg to apply, change the accent colors to the values you desire argb (Alpha, Red, Green, Blue) Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM] "AccentColor"=dword:c41f1f1f "EnableBlurBlend"=dword:00000000 "GlassOpacity"=dword:00000055 "AccentColorInactive"=dword:c41f1f1f
  2. Work PC's shouldn't be a factor here, no work or office PC user should be concerned on how pretty their desktop looks or be using any 3rd party customization software, I am sure your employers wouldn't be too pleased to see that.
  3. MS should have dropped X86 years ago, I thought Windows 8 was going to be X64 only but sadly they seem unwilling to let it go, even though pretty much all new PC's use X64 and anyone with half decent hardware would be silly to use anything else, I would say 99% of the your supporters would be using X64, maybe there are a few people using X86 on Virtual Machines for testing insider builds as they are smaller download sizes but I couldn't imagine many others, maybe make a poll to get a better picture to see if it's worth while your time to keep supporting it, I did create an unofficial installer for the latest build that I posted on my site Aero Glass for Windows 10 RS1 Experimental builds , no one is asking for a X86 version. I think your time would be better spent on creating a new UI and maybe even incorporating it into the installer.
  4. Thanks for all your hard efforts to keep this project alive, new build is working great
  5. It's already an option, you can enable and disable blur on the start menu and taskbar in the appearance menu, toggle the little rain drop icon, it probably should be a bit more obvious that it is a setting, also make sure you have checked both of the custom color settings options.
  6. I just did another reboot to see if the incompatibility window came up but still didn't get one, the dwm.exe cmd window does show that dwmcore.pdb cant be found but I am not seeing any other windows aside from the cmd window.
  7. I have that update and didn't have any error messages and glass is still working fine.
  8. Try using these settings for perfect colors on the Windows 10 Black Edition Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM] "AccentColor"=dword:c41f1f1f "EnableBlurBlend"=dword:00000000 "GlassOpacity"=dword:00000055 "AccentColorInactive"=dword:c41f1f1f
  9. Well that's the way it works for every one else so you must have done something for it to be this way, it's not a problem with OldNewExplorer, it's a problem with your OS.
  10. In the File Explorer command bar go to Organize > Layout > Menu Bar and uncheck Menu bar. If it's still not being disabled go to Organize > Change Folder & Search Options > View tab > Always Show Menus make sure it's not checked.
  11. You have to create a new DWORD called GlassOpacity and set it 0-100 default: 68. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM] "AccentColor"=dword:c41f1f1f "EnableBlurBlend"=dword:00000000 "GlassOpacity"=dword:00000000 "AccentColorInactive"=dword:c41f1f1f Save that as a reg file and set the values you want for active and inactive accent colors.
  12. Setting it to 1 seemed to make it worse, not only did it still make things disappear, it also caused strange grey boxes around any animated tiles, it also increased the size of those grey borders with the increase of the blur radius, setting 10 1 would give you a 1px border, increasing the blur radius to 15 gave what looked like a 15px border, setting GlassSafetyZoneMode back to 0 removed these borders again, also these borders were present even with no other open windows in the background. I would have posted a screen but these boxes were not visible in the screen capture, I could probably capture it on a VM though.
  13. Well it looked like one, if not then what is that program running in the background, the one with someone's avatar as a queen and saying text channels at the top, looks like a modern app as it is not using the normal explorer windowed edges, regardless this was the only way I was able to reproduce this bug and at least it will be reproducible for others, tbh though who is really going to be bothered about the visibility of a program running behind the start menu, seeing this on a regular basis is highly unlikely, yes it is a bug but not one that would or should be of any consequence.
  14. I was able to reproduce this by creating a new folder and naming it test_test, explorer froze and then restarted, this was the same with ONE installed or not installed, I even did a restart to make sure and it still happened, this also only happens when I used the start menu shortcut for the user folder, if navigated from C:\Users\your user name I was able to create the folder without any problems, again with and without ONE installed. So no this is not a problem with ONE this is a problem with Windows, not sure what OS your using but this test was done on 10 Pro x64 Anniversary update.
  15. OK I was able to reproduce this but you forgot to mention one critical thing, you must have a modern app open behind, I opened the weather app and then put vlc on top and then opened the start menu and vlc player didn't show behind the start menu, I also had to make sure the start menu was resized as narrow as can be.
