Aero Glow 8.1 by MrGRiM01 Aero Glow 8.1 by MrGRiM01
Aero Glow 8.1

This theme is updated to work with Tihiy's OldNewExplorer (Explorer Enhancement Program) found here www.msfn.org/board/topic/17037…
All changes in the screen are done without altering a single system file and is completely safe.

The Aero Glass can be achieved using Big Muscles Aero Glass Win8.1 x64 only found here www.msfn.org/board/topic/16357…

You can also use the Bypass theme signature in Aero Glass to enable the use of Custom Themes, otherwise use UxStyle found here uxstyle.com/

I have also included a registry file to import the correct settings that will give you the correct border and caption button size as well as other bits that don't get changed with the theme in Windows 8, it's very important to use this reg if you want it to look correct, log off to take effect after you have applied it.

Hope you enjoy this release, any problems or bugs, let me know and I will do my best to solve them.

Hi Mark. I'd be very grateful (as in give a donation) if you were able to update your Aero 8 Glow (not Aero Glow 8.1 as I like the rounded edges better than square ones) for Win 8.1 to work with the Spring Update. The right click context menu does not work on the Spring Update. I don't know if this is possible as xXiNightXx has said he wont be converting his themes for a while due to a modern app animation issue.

Please add a .reg file to undo the changes. I've got my PC screwed up an I need the reg file to undo changes very badly.
I've tried putting a - sign before the names of the registry hive but that did'nt work.

I have read on someones theme if you change the dpi settings and then change them back the current theme registry settings take effect, I have not tested this though.

not without removing support for the start menu completely and changing all the image locations and properties for the jump list

Hello Mr Grim,

I found this tip from Panda X for fixing the jumplists for Windows 8.1. Could you please update this style for Windows 8.1?


Kindly,
TE

:iconmrgrim01:
MrGRiM01 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I can fix it easy but not without messing up the start menu, I guess I could make another style without the start menu but the easiest fix is to use Start Is Back and it will fix the jump list.

ThugEsquire Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2013
If you would be willing to do that I'd be most grateful. I already bought Start8 so the idea of buying StartIsBack doesn't get me.

:iconmrgrim01:
MrGRiM01 Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I might if I find the time, Start8 is a pile of crap though, start is back is far better, Stardock in general is a load of crap as far as I am concerned, I dislike all their products, considering Start is Back was made by one person, he has done one hell of a job and continues to make improvements, he is also the one who made the OldNewExplorer tool to enhance explorer even more, Tihiy and Big Muscle are the only ones I support because they are the only who are making a difference to Windows 8 and the only reason I will continue to make themes for it.

Μy start menu isn't sharp as you!It has the default round border...
What style should i use to have sharp corners mate? 
And how do you add reflections to the windows? 
Nice Job here!!

:iconmrgrim01:
MrGRiM01 Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
The start menu is part of the theme if you use Start Is Back by Tihiy it will display the same, the reflection can be added with Aero Glass by Big Muscle, you will need to add the reflection image using a registry setting, I have a tool that can add the reflection for you here www.mediafire.com/download/31g… and if you want a reflection image you can use the one I made here www.mediafire.com/convkey/0043…
