I'm wondering if anyone here has had any success in finding a way to remove or hide the rectangle image that MS has added behind the text title on the title-bar in Win8.1?
I know that changing the text color itself can be done in WSB (Style-Builder), by editing the color for the text in the Windows & Caption Buttons drop-downs, and I've been able to do that.
But the rectangular background, something that isn't in the 'Dwm Window' in 8, but MS has idiotically included in 8.1, is driving me nuts!
I'm currently using "Work for Windows 8", a dark-bordered theme by neiio (deviantART) http://neiio.deviant...ows-8-337353688
1)- As can be seen, the theme, at defaults, has the color for explorer window-text in the title bar as black (which I've changed to a light grey after making this capture)
2) and 3)- But other open windows, like the Control Panel and the frames around programs have the irritating image behind the title bar texting. Sure, I can change the text to black, I think, but the rectangle will still show. Even adjusting the color settings in Personalize doesn't touch it.
I've tried stuff with the Registry.....can't seem to change it....I'm at a loss. It's driving me bonkers!!!!
I hope someone smarter than me can (or has) find a way to either get rid of it completely or edit it for dark themes.
Thanks ahead of time to anyone who responds!
