Your Favorite Themes for Windows 8

Are the Themeable Control Panel Navigation Panes going to be part of the project? And I'm looking forward to this new project.

This wont be a standard feature, I have asked for it though and it will be implemented in a different way, it will be theme specific and be implemented in the way of modified UI files in shellstyle.dll so if a custom theme uses custom navigation panes for the control panel they will be applied with the theme, this will also be the same for other theme specific changes, so if you have a topshell theme (details pane on top) then you can add the custom UI files to the shellstyle.dll and it will be applied with the theme as shown in the image below.

I see. I was only asking, because, and I'm not sure if you got my deviantart message or not, but in any case, disregard it. I had asked about the Control Navigation Panes in the Windows Style Builder, eventually I went through the comments of your Shell32 Patch for Windows 8 and figured out how to do it. I just wish it was easy to add in.

I've been wanting to get xXiNightXx's Aero 8, 8.1, and his Windows Vista VS (For Windows 8 only), modified to support the CP Navigation Panes.

Aero 8.1 is out (Supports bottom details pain if you install grims shell patch), Working on my adobe theme before I start the port of the vista style. (requires me to manually import all of the images onto a new windows 8.1 theme file and then set the markings ans such)

A little something new that I have been working on. Its not quite ready for release.

Sweet job Night. Looking forward to the finalized theme.

Btw, did you get my comment on deviantart?

Not quite, what was it again?

in your Aero 8.1 Theme (And in the Aero 8 Theme) I fixed the Show Desktop area on the taskbar image.

Seen here below..

and possibly I could do the Vista theme out of Aero 8.1, maybe that way you don't have to worry about doing it yourself. The one thing I may not be able to do is the default Start Menu that Windows Vista comes with, unless you were planning on making this theme from scratch.

oh yeah, I removed the show desktop graphic from the theme since the clock was shifted over a few pixels. Im still messing with trying to force it back to the original position. If you want an actual button for there use this instead of a fake image: http://xxinightxx.deviantart.com/art/Show-Desktop-133022210 Its just quite odd for it to be there all squished. just takes away the looks. lol

The Vista Aero theme will be made from scratch. I have some plans for including a basic style to go with it as well.

Ah, Okay. Well. I think You don't have to worry about trying to force the button image on the taskbar any longer. Why don't I send you my modified Aer 8.1 file with the fake image on the taskbar. Just to see if I got it the right size. (I also fixed the Windows 8 version too. )

The showdesktop graphic has no issues on the 8 version. Its exactly the same as win7.

Is there any trick that would allow either a WinXP style theme (as in Royale Noir), or even the Classic desktop?

I understand that there is a Classic Desktop style skin, and that the true Classic style was removed from Windows 8. But there must be some registry hack that can reveal it, no?

Wow! That Adobe one looks nice.

As for those that posted "Classic Skin for Win 8 Only", I was precisely mentioning that I was aware of these skins (I'm appreciative of your response just the same). However, is there a registry hack or whatever that will reveal the true classic desktop style with NO SKINS?
