  1. Search Programs and Files in italics?

    Thank you for your reply. I am afraid the Winaero Tweaker can't change this setting either, though. It seems the option is just completely gone from the OS. The only programme I've found that is capable of doing this is Windowblinds, but it makes a complete mess of Startisback.
  2. Yes, I'm afraid you cannot really do anything about it. That's how my Firefox looks now, too. I am also having text rendering issues with Aero Glass enabled; not sure how to fix those - guess I should create a new thread.
  3. Aero Glass ThemeAtlas

    I use the one by Xemnes, on page 37 of this thread.
  4. That code pops up if you are using one of the beta versions, or have not activated your copy (which you can only do if you donated on Big Muscle's website).
  5. Hey, relax. That DLL tool was an extra bit of kit that Big Muscle coded. This thread is about Aero Glass.
  6. Erm, well, because it enables glass and allows me to skin the window frame and titlebar - which is exactly what the glass8 website tells you this software does?
  7. Many thanks! It works perfectly.
  8. iQ test ?

    If you are genuinely interested in knowing your IQ, take a validated test like the WAIS-IV with a trained professional. Doing the test takes several hours, involves assessments of both your verbal and perceptual abilities, and produces a nuanced overview of your cognitive performance. The Mensa test is fairly accurate as long as there are no substantial discrepancies between (what used to be known as) your verbal and performance IQs. If such discrepancies do exist, the test no longer yields reliable results as it primarily focuses on your performance IQ.
  9. I find that, in Windows 10, Windowblinds themes do not always give consistent effects - the last time I used it, there was much greater difference between the titlebars of various kinds of Windows applications than was the case if I used Glass8. That said, Stardock's proprietary engine does work on all the versions of Windows 10 released thus far, likely thanks to the fact that they are less dependent on Microsoft code than Glass8. And there's nothing mysterious about wba themes. They're just zip files that could be 'dismantled' with any old archiving application.
  10. Donated, watermark didnt gone

    You are probably running the experimental (i.e., beta) build for the Fall Creators' Update. AFAIK it always has the watermark.
  11. Install Aero Glass Theme without Installer

    Well, you don't - those files are used by Glass8 itself. I personally use the GUI to set Glass8 to use the right files. As I do not currently have Glass8 installed (waiting for Bigmuscle to finish the Fall Creators' Update version) I am not sure if the GUI works at the moment.
  12. Title bar rescaling

    I'll see what happens if I modify the glyphs in the msstyle theme that I'm using, to see if those are imported by Aeroglass. I've found out what caused the blurriness in the 200% pic, by the way. I had attempted to resize the titlebar using the Winaero Tweaker. Somehow, this doesn't work at 4K/200%, but it does cause the textures on the buttons to distort.
  13. Start orb scaling - request/question

    Cool, thanks!
  14. Title bar rescaling

    Ah, thanks! I thought those buttons were imported from the file used to paint the window frame. I know how to edit msstyle themes, so I'll give that a go. EDIT - it does render them, though, doesn't it? The buttons displayed are the ones in the theme atlas. Or is Aero Glass somehow telling the Windows rendering engine to use those buttons, without doing the rendering itself?
  15. Title bar rescaling

    When I rescale the Windows interface, the way in which the title bar is painted appears to change beyond simply resampling its various elements. The minimize/resize/close buttons stretch further down, and the glyphs inside those buttons do not appear to resize at all. I have added two images to illustrate what I mean. The first image is of a 32-bit application which has not been rescaled; the second one is of that same application, yet scaled to 200% of its original size. Would it be possible to counteract or remedy this? I am using Aero Glass on Windows 10 Creators' Update.
