Windows 10 build 10074 ditches classic Appearance and themes support

 

Themes are definitely not working for me yet (if they ever will).

 

Maybe not all you'd like, but there is still the possibility of just replacing the theme atlas with Big Muscle's Aero Glass toolset...

This goes to @MagicAndre's question a few posts back about being able to change the desktop icons.

 

Windows 10 build 10074 ditches classic Appearance and themes support

 

Themes are definitely not working for me yet (if they ever will). I keep trying to install a Vista theme using UxStyle, but it doesn't make any perceptible difference.

This is just getting worse and worse by every build. First they took away Glass and Classic and now the ability to change the color of the already colorless windows. The comment section of that article is even more interesting though...

The old Control Panel is going away for good (finally!) It was a mess anyway.

And the whole Windows userland is becoming WinRT-based since Win32 is dead outside of the kernel, drivers, and specific use cases.

Heh, the very definition of "Metrotard".  Someone who can operate a web browser and needs Windows for not much else.

 

That term is really starting to grow on me.

 

The scene comes to mind in Idiocracy where Dr. Lexus (Justin Long) is explaining how his wife was considered "tarded" but is now an airline pilot.

... those few legacy desktop/Win32 applications some of us still need ...

Yeah, I guess I'll have to read up on "theme atlases" if and when I make the move to Windows 8/10.

 

Have to admit, though, that your Desktop looks pretty nice. :thumbup  Hey, is that the Weather app in the middle of the screen -- with its own translucent border? I thought that Metro apps were, uhh, immune to customization of that sort.
