Rudsec, for slightly rounded corners try one of theme resource files with Aero Glass for Win 8.1:

@NoelC can you please post the .layout file for this? I really like this one. Also, I'm on Windows 10 TH2.

That was from before the time of .layout files, so I don't have one.  Plus, I'm not sure anyone has all the numbers yet needed for the .layout for the newest Windows 10 release.  Normally Big Muscle does some magic to extract those numbers from the system, and I'll bet he's waiting for the actual release.

There is no magic in it. Just a standard API :)

for (unsigned int i = 1; i < iMaxPart; ++i) {
	RECT rc = { 0 };
	if (GetThemeRect(hTheme, i, 0, TMT_ATLASRECT, &rc) == S_OK) {
		fprintf(f, "%u;0;8002=%u,%u,%u,%u\n", i, rc.left, rc.top, rc.right, rc.bottom);
	}
}

.. A decision on when to expect in 1607?

And how do you use this?  What extension?

It's just a code snippet written in C. You'd need the whole thing and Visual Studio to compile it. I haven't dug into theme related specifics so that's all I can say.

You could look at Big Muscle's current .layout file that he ships with his current beta for the Anniversary build.  That's what I did to create this:

I've always been a big fan of your theme atlas files and now I'm at the point where I depend on them.  :)

I was wondering if you could provide this theme w/ no rounded corners like you did before. 

Thanks again for your hard work.

14393 instead of 10393. :D

And Win10 part.

Thank you!  I corrected my post above.  I usually test links but somehow I must have rushed through that one.

Use a RoundRectRadius value of 11 with that, by the way, for the cleanest looking corners.

You're welcome.  Here's a very quick shot at that.  Please let me know if you find anything wrong with it:

NoelC: I've played with RoundRectRadius a bit and have to ask, does it effect anything else except the top-right corner of the window? I figured value of 15 looks nicest to me, but there are still some redundant pixels in the remaining 3 corners of the window, bottom-left corner being the worst.

As far as I can see, it affects all the corners.

Keep in mind, in order to get it to take effect you either have to log off/on - or cause an immediate update to Aero Glass by changing the value using the AeroGlassGUI tool.

If even in light of the above information you're seeing inconsistent corner radius handling, you should go ahead and report it as a bug to Big Muscle in the Experimental Builds thread.
