This fix changes the active title bar's text to white and also changes the "maximize" and "minimize" buttons from black to white, so that if you want a dark title bar the text and icons don't disappear because of being the same color as the background.
This is the original theme with white text and black icons by "MrGRiM01": fav.me/d5er1ee
I downloaded that theme and changed the icons only.
The method for changing the icons is taken from "DavidM" here: www.neowin.net/forum/topic/112…
To make the theme look like the picture do the following: after choosing it in personalization go to color then enable mixer and set hue and saturation to zero then play with intensity and brightness until the color fits your preference.
EDIT2: The text above the Aero Peek thumbnails is now White! Thanks to Baegus!
