  1. Hi Tihiy, been a long time, not sure if you are still interested in adding anything to this this project but was just wondering if it is possible to add an option to use the old explorer address bar size instead of the new ugly fat one introduced in the 1909 feature update?
  2. Yes this is normal and not something I like, the thread mentioned above https://virtualcustoms.net/showthread.php/84200-Width-of-address-bar-(1909) does change it back but I found that it keeps on reverting to the larger one, I decided to uninstall the 1909 update on my system as I saw no value in keeping it.
  3. @Tihiy Is there any chance you could fix the toolbar context menu for the classic context menu option, I did request this a long time ago but with dark mode you would have noticed that this now effects your default included styles as well and not just custom themes.
  4. Most people should be using the mun files as that is where the bulk of the icons are located now
  5. Sounds like you are pinning to the immersive start menu instead of the SiB start menu, go in to the Advanced properties and check Remove Pin to Start from shell context menus and now you will only see the option to Pin to Start Menu.
  6. I have been adding all my custom icons to the shell32.dll.mui file in C:\Windows\System32\en-US, you can make a copy of the shell32.dll and add all the custom icons you want then export the icon folder as a res file using Restorator making sure you only save the modified resources, then make a copy of the shell32.dll.mui file and open the file in Restorator, then drag and drop the res file you made on the open file in the left column in Restorator, you should now be able to save the modified file. After that you will need to take ownership of the shell32.dll.mui file then rename it to shell32.dll.mui.bak, then copy the modified shell32.dll.mui file back to that folder, you will then have to restart explorer or restart windows to take effect, you may also nee to clear the icon cache. To clear the icon cache I just use a batch file with this in it. @ECHO OFF cd\ taskkill /f /IM explorer.exe SET FILE98=*.db SET PATH98=%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\ SET FILE99=IconCache.db SET PATH99=%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local CD /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local DEL IconCache.db /a IF EXIST %FILE99% ( attrib -H "%PATH99%\%FILE99%" del "%PATH99%\%FILE99%" ) IF EXIST %FILE98% ( attrib -H "%PATH98%\%FILE98%" del "%PATH98%\%FILE98%" ) IF EXIST IconCache.db ( DEL IconCache.db /a ) CD /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows del /f /s /q Explorer\*.* del /f /s /q Explorer\iconcache*.* del /f /s /q Explorer\thumbcache*.* DEL /f /s /q Explorer\thumbcache*.* /a START %windir%\"explorer.exe" EXIT Good luck, this is the only way I know works without causing a black screen. Unless Tihiy can give you a better solution.

    Thanks for the update Tihiy, looks like centered icons is working fine for custom themes now not using any insider builds though so wont be testing the 19H1 feature.

    Yeah I just did a bit of testing and it seems if you have any content margins added to Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBand > Aero > TaskBand > BackgroundBottom then it will not let you center the icons
  9. This is normal for the explorer window context menu on the command bar and address bar.
  10. It's working fine for me, maybe try unchecking it in folder options.
  11. uninstall aeroglass, that was what I just did, if BM can release a version that doesn't bug out then I will use it again.
  12. I second the option to disable the animation, I know allot of theme developers would love this option as allot of them go to lengths to cover them up, oh and I know I have asked this before but could you please ad the clock font properties back to Taskbar & System Tray > System Tray > Basic > Clock, it's the one thing that still bugs me with Windows 10, I don't want to be forced to use the same font for the task items as I do for the clock fonts.
  13. yeah they have it disabled by default with the side position because they know how bad it was implemented and would rather users just forget that it's there rather then go back to having it at the bottom and actually be useful.
  14. I am in no rush for it, happy to wait for as long as it takes, I am sure you have plenty of other more important thing to do in your life
  15. same, all I need to type is ca and calculator is top of the list.
  16. That is how it's meant to look, the green outside the button can not be helped though as Vista and 7 had rounded edge buttons but on 8 and 10 they are square so the round buttons will have these little problems with rendering outside the buttons on the progress overlays
  17. Vista Aero style updated for anyone who wants it http://www.mediafire.com/file/e5vg7l0g5h9ba3r/Vista_Aero.zip
  18. Awesome work Tihiy, still have a a couple of other issues that would love to see fixed though, when applying styles through SiB the taskband content margins are being ignored, specificity Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBand > Aero > TaskBand > BackgroundBottom and Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBand > Aero > TaskBand > TaskItemButton, it would great if those content margins could be read as that adjusts the height of the taskbar as well as the task item spacing, also I really wish we could have the font properties for the taskbar clock returned to the original location in Taskbar & System Tray > System Tray > Basic > Clock as well as the ability to adjust the content margins for the clock, also one of my members pointed out the skinning bug on the the right click taskbar tool bar flyout, I know I have mentioned this to you before but thought I would bring it up again. Thanks again for all the hard work you put in to this project, we really do appreciate it and it makes all our lives so much nicer on Windows 10
  19. OK I fixed the jumplist text as well as the show desktop button but this also results in the start menu extended list view having black text so not the best solution, the best solution would be for Tihiy to use the correct location for the jump list text colors. http://www.mediafire.com/file/tykzlmalzkzaoza/Vista_Styles.zip
  20. This is not the original Vista msstyles, it has been created on Windows 8 by the looks of it to be used on Windows 8 but can probably be fixed. OK the problem is because Tihiy has the jumplist text colors being linked to the Start Menu Places List Extended instead of Start Menu > Panels > Aero > Jump List > Panels > Jump List User where it should be, sadly I am not able to fix that for you.
  21. It will be the shellstyle.dll from the theme you are using, ONE can use custom UI files inserted in the shellstyle.dll for a wide range of customizations, if the theme was not updated for the version Windows you are on then it will have problems with ONE, ask the author to update the shellstyle.dll for the theme or grab a shellstyle.dll from another theme that does work.

    Fair enough, it was just that when I was testing some of my custom themes there were some content and sizing issues, it took me a little bit to realise what resource it was using

    Nice work Tihiy, I see you used the extended UI background as the frame, was there a reason for doing it this way instead of using the DWM window frame?
  25. Don't download this crap, if you want a working areo glass version that you can trust that will work better then this version use Aero Glass 8+ 1.4.5, it doesn't have any issues aside from some artefacts if you use blur, keep the blur radius at 0 or 1 any higher and the artefacts become more noticeable. If you are not able to find the official 1.4.5 then you can grab my custom installer for it from my site here http://virtualcustoms.net/attachment.php?attachmentid=77903&d=1496113501 Sorry to BM if this is not acceptable, I have only posted it as I don't think people should be touching this version from Edivan Baptista, I think all these posts should be removed by the mods and just wait for your official supported version.
