  1. Dear BigMuscle, I'd very much like to thank you sir for your continuously-updated contribution to the Windows 10 modding community. It is arguably the most cherished amendment to the aforementioned OS' UI that I've had the pleasure of experiencing. Granted, it can't be easy to try and keep up with all the changes implemented by Microsoft on an all-too-regular basis, but it certainly doesn't appear to have stopped you, therefore, much obliged indeed. In addition to an essential app in my humble opinion, Aero Glass continues to be, without a doubt, second to none, and, easily worth every penny I've donated. I sincerely hope you had a memorable Christmas, and I wish you all the best going forward, friend, cheers :-)
  2. You're a good man, MDJ. A belated thank you, friend, for your selfless contribution towards making Windows 10 a better experience. It means a lot, cheers :-)
  3. BigMuscle, thank you so much for your continued dedication towards making Windows 10 aesthetically-pleasing. Microsoft ought to credit you for cleaning up their bland attempt at a comprehensive UI. I would argue that your hard work has consistently yielded an outstanding product, as well as a precious contribution to the community in general. I don't mean to suck up, but you're awesome! Cheers, friend :-)
  4. Awesome news, thanks for the heads up! Thanks again to BigMuscle for continuing to make Windows 10 aesthetically-pleasing. It's far more important than it may sound, and I don't know what I would have done without his outstanding contribution, because the alternatives are rather mediocre. Much obliged BM!
  5. Sorry for the late reply, nitinvaid20. I believe you are correct. In fact, I think that BigMuscle's 'Aero Glass' software includes its own patch to enable custom themes - that is, unless he has removed it. It's important to note that the aforementioned patch integrated into Aero Glass may only enable custom themes through Aero Glass itself, and not separately of that. Either way, to be certain everything works fine, I have always chosen to install the latest version of UxTheme Patcher. But then again, I always prefer using 3rd party themes (the ones you have to place into C:\Windows\Resources\Themes). Hope this helped, good day.
  6. UXTheme Patcher modifies three system files in order to allow third party themes to be installed and enabled.
  7. Dear BigMuscle, My sincerest thanks for your continued support of an app which makes a fundamental difference aesthetically for Windows 10 users. Your work puts the likes of Stardock to shame, and I am not exaggerating. Keep up the outstanding work, friend :-)
  8. I genuinely hope he is alright. His software is the reason I've been able to use Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 without being disgusted by the changes made to the user interface after Windows 7 (still the best one ever in my opinion). You're right - a lot of time has passed us without an update of any kind from the man himself. His absence only serves to underscore the stupid decision made which resulted in Windows Aero's codebase being shredded apart.
  9. Aero Glass for Win8.1+ 1.5.3

    It's such a shame - his software has added a beautiful (arguably fundamental) touch to Windows 8, 8.1 and 10's fugly UI, and, the resource usage isn't very significant to boot. Where could he be? Why is he not responding? It would provide us with some peace of mind to receive verbal confirmation from him in that he has not abandoned the project. Hell, I would donate again if he would continue his work on it. Alas, it appears I'll have to resort to using Windowblinds again. ---------------------------- BM, in the event that you read this, I beg of you not to give up on this essential application. You've done a phenomenal job so far. Please continue to work on it at least for the remainder of this year. I'll gladly donate what I can if you do. I don't know if you're sick, or if there's a family emergency, or something else entirely, but I pray you're alright. Sincerely, Sam
