thats nice - some excellent wallpapers - would be better [i think] if the text at the top of the windows was a light colour - very difficult to read on the dark colours - easier on the round cornered one where there is some background blur but that does not show on the square corned one

I am using a lap and the taskbar is slightly darker but still very readable, was just trying to get away from the cotton candy blur on the text but If your using AGTweaker you can adjust the Opacity and Blur sliders and check off the Use native Blur for the text.. DP

Just some new tweaks to my Aero Theme for windows 8:

Thanks for this update version. I only use theme Square Default as usual!

I happened to delete the previous version without backing it up. How awful! Do you still have the old link so that I can download it again, Night?

No, its long gone. What did you like about the previous version? (I could potentially add it in as an alternate msstyle.)

Is that windows 7 in the picture? I have seen a couple people have the windows 7 explorer frames where the glass area is back in the navigation area, but could not tell if it was fake or real.

The theme has 2 styles rounded and squared. To get the rounded borders, you select the round theme and enable aero glass as described in the install text file. As for the black screen bug, what theme patcher did you install?

I am not very sure why I prefer the older version. Perhaps I like more visible strikes on the title bar! But it's OK, this update is also very nice. I like it much more than any other themes by you. Thanks for replying.

yeah I had lots of request to lower the opacity of the streaks on the taskbar/windows. Not much I can do about it now since it took me forever just to make the new frames. lol

i had and have uxstyle - that is/was running as i was using a theme that needed it - i installed your thems - did it manually and played around with it for some little time - tried square and rounded corners - did not see rounded - but did not have them set in the tweaker - no problem as i prefer square - that was just a comment as it all was

all was working fine - i was prompted to reboot as windows had updated so did that and got a black screen on reload - only way back was a system repair back to a day or so ago

as i say comments - no more - if no one else has seen it then i am happy to blame Microsoft

I have had the black screen bugs back when I use to have my system files patched just to use themes. But ever since I switched to : http://www.uxstyle.com/ the black screens went away after updates.

I wish there would be an Aero theme with the title bar like this Ambient. The white caption on the title bar is so nice IMO. If it is an aero visual style, it will have the automatic color, right?

Don't know what has happened! I've got back Aero rev 2.4, applied it and then decided to use rev 3.0 instead! But will keep rev 2.4 in case I change my mind again!

Thanks for all the themes posted on this thread, btw.
