I realize that you do not use the default windows menu bar, so you don't care much for the background it uses. However, it looks like aero and has that glass-like blue metal gradient. I do use the standard windows menu bar, and "foobar 2000" also appears to use the explorer theme's gradients, could you change these to a more appropriate color for those of us that use these?
first of all, thank you for your effort. i installed the theme, but except for the change in the color of taskbar and wallpaper, there was no other changes. i mean, no change in the taskbar icons, start menu icons, hard drives icons, etc. The file i downloaded included "explorer frames", "orb", "theme" and a text and jpg file. i changed my explorerframe.dll to explorerframe-old.dll and copy-pasted your version in system 32. then put the theme folder in resources-theme folder. should i do anything else?
ps: i have installed and applied the theme patcher
sorry for the long explanation and thank you again
Hello! Love the theme by the way! C'est genial! I do have one concern though. The search functionality in the start menu seems to be completely excluded from this theme. Is this going to be implemented at some point? Merci!
Bug Report: I used to turn off ctfmon.exe with no problem switching between keyboard input languages. (in my case, English & Korean) But after I apply this theme, it happens periodically that I should load ctfmon on my memory to change keyboard input language to Korean. Have not experienced this with other visual style themes I've been tried. Any thoughts?
ctfmon (ctfmon.exe) is a process used by Microsoft Office to activate the Alternative User Input Text Input Processor (TIP) and also the Microsoft Language Bar. Ctfmon is also a component of Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, Windows Vista and Windows 7 which enables advanced user input services in applications (pen and ink, speech etc.).
the start menu is so gorgeous!! and big font for task bar time and date is also smart and careful choice!! I only wish you could add more colors other than blue with scroll bar. Blue is ugly, and blue light is bad for eyes too.
I really like the presentation of this theme. It is very clean and elegant, while still being fairly masculine as well. I VERY much appreciate the fact that buttons and scroll bars have broken away from the need to be 3D objects, and that aspect alone is very refreshing. I only have 2 caveats preventing me from calling this theme PERFECT. First, I find that selecting files in explorer is very difficult because the selection is so light, it is almost impossible to tell what files are selected. Makes it very hard when selecting multiple files. My only other gripe is the lack of search box on the start menu. I can still type to search after hitting start, but it's a little awkward because It's not visible. With the exception of these two details, I think it's a truly awesome theme and am running it on my desktop, (and maybe soon my laptop as well.) Fantastic Work!
