  1. Would anybody care to help me out with this? On Windows 10, I like the buttons from the Win8CP but I do not like the slightly misaligned borders that are around the start menu and notification panel, and I have had no success removing that. And in order to minimise those start menu borders, I have basically copied the buttons from win8rp to win8cp (It has a more elaborate layout file) and removed any borders from normal windows, which I would prefer to have. I also darkened the shadows a bit. Even then there is some border left on the start menu. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/swo8r6ju7kemzt2/AABAB5vGMD3vHPHE9Tsz1sYda?dl=0 The current theme that I am using is in that dropbox link named "win8rp - Copy.png", but in that folder there is also the win8rp and win8cp themes. Normally I am ok editing around the atlas files, but, I have no proficiency in the layout files.
  2. So after the newest update to AeroGlass, I am finding that the Win8CP atlas looks great. Apart from one detail - I cant seem to be able to disable the borders that happen around the start menu/system tray/notification panel. Would someone be able to explain what I should change or edit? Here are the Atlas from Win8RP and Win8CP. I really like the buttons form Win8CP. These were in previous releases of AeroGlass. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/swo8r6ju7kemzt2/AABAB5vGMD3vHPHE9Tsz1sYda?dl=0
  3. This looks quite suitable to my needs. I havent been able to get the frame borders to stay whille having a borderless start menu. Do you mind sharing this?
  4. To be honest, I love this gel effect. It's in keeping with what aero was in Windows 7, while simultaneously breaking new ground in the ui. Makes me wish we could have the ripple gel effect while moving windows from Linux. <3 <3 <3 Edit: for my own preferences, I am likely to change the dark elements like the x or maximise button while also adding transparency to the mouse over on the buttons. But, as you do it for your preference, I will keep my changes, which are minor, completely private. Sent from my Nexus 4 running CM12 (LP 5.0.2) using Tapatalk
  5. I am trying to work something out with the themeatlas from AeroLite which still exists in build 9926, and has full borders. In this version, the taskbar icons and text are also white so its easier to work with. Maybe that could be a solution to the border issue. Here is the basic ThemeAtlas from 9926's AeroLite https://www.dropbox.com/s/ctlclfot7ip6b0g/Win10v9926AeroLiteAtlas.png?dl=0 I have realised I cant find the spot in AeroLite to place the text glow, so that is an issue. But here is what I have after a little light editing of the Atlas: Atlas: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6vgwhtolztqz8fb/Win10v9926AeroLiteAtlas%20Inverted%20buttons.png?dl=0
  6. Well, taskbar transparency works with the commandline tool... but is lost every time the UI refreshes, which is often, especially if you bring up the start menu. I never got the start menu transparent. WinID says the class name for the start menu is "class Windows.UI.Core.CoreWindow" however, that did not work for me, which I assume is partly because clicking start refreshes the UI and removes transparencies.
  7. I am on build 9926, and transparency in the way I was used to from the build before 2015 is no longer possible.
  8. So this time for the first time, I'm not looking forward to symbols being updated. xD The glass makes things bearable (Its more usable now that I installed Startisback - if there was anything they did right in the start menu initially in Win10, its completely undone now)/
  9. I just updated to the newer build of Win10tp and it is seriously ugly! Definitely will use Startisback later. At least AeroGlass partially works (if you click cancel on the error message about being unable to get symbols/unable to hook DWM) Edit: And the commandline for putting blur on the taskbar works but gets reverted shortly after it is activated (by bringing up the start menu). It is actively trying to stop users having a nice OS.
  10. I am always so grateful for this project. In a clean install of Windows 10 tp, it takes a minute or two to install AeroGlass - in that time, it is so uncomfortable to use the OS. Its easy to forget how much of an improvement this is until you experience the moments without it. So as always, Thank you BM!
  11. I am not a fan of the Windows 10 start menu but while I am on the beta I am forcing myself to test it out. I dont like the accent on the taskbar so I use the commandline tool to make it more traditionally blured and its much nicer this way. But I havent been able to work out what class the start menu is rendered with so I havent been able to make the start menu transparent. I'll keep looking (although if someone knew it off the top of their head, I wouldnt object if you let me know). And overall, the commandline tool is easy to use. I just have it running in a batch file. It isnt instantly in effect but it works soon enough for my tastes and therefore I'm happy with that. But I am likely to use StartIsBack in the full release - the current start menu feels more and more like a struggle as I use it daily.
  12. Mine on my Laptop where I installed Win10tp. I have various desktop images of nebula and cities at night which I collected from Google over time. They change every 15 minutes or so.
  13. NoelC, I just realised in the past couple of days that in Windows 10, Aerolite theme retains the windows border and is very easy to activate. Is this something you might plan to play around with? The only downside I can see is that taskbar text is locked in black with no glow. Edit: I have played around with the theme atlas. Not exactly big differences but I like the outcome. https://www.dropbox.com/s/n3kqs2ryz1oxmox/Win10_Build_9879_Theme_Atlas.edit.png?dl=0 Screenshot of that:
  14. I just noticed today that Windows 10 AeroLite has still got borders. Has anyone who likes to readd borders to 10 tried playing around with that theme atlas?
