How I make the ThemeAtlas only have caption glow ?

4 posts in this topic

Hello all.

Just want ask.

For now , I'm using Windows 10 default theme with Aero Glass v1.5.3

How I make the ThemeAtlas .png only have caption glow (like windows 7 caption glow) , but without theme style.

Mean Windows 10 default theme + Aero Glass v1.5.3 + ThemeAtlas .png (caption glow)

Thanks :)

You would have to extract the theme atlas from the resource attached to the theme DLL into a .PNG file, then modify just the caption glow portion of the image.  Then when you load it via Aero Glass for Win 8+ it would just keep all the graphics the same except for the glow portion.  I did that a long while back with the Aero7 theme I use for my Win 8.1 desktop, though I also updated the caption button graphics.

I have in the past done the resource extraction with Microsoft Visual Studio, and the second part with Adobe Photoshop.  I used to have notes on precisely where to look in the theme file for the resource that is the theme atlas PNG but I seem to have misplaced them.

Regarding resource extraction, you can also use Resource Hacker, the first item under STREAM is the PNG you're looking for.
