Windows 8 default theme - White TitleBar Text v1.1 by maddada1 Windows 8 default theme - White TitleBar Text v1.1 by maddada1
~Not Being updated anymore~

For Windows 8 only

To install:
- Patch using UxStyle uxstyle.com/
- Reboot
- Extract the Default theme folder into C:/windows/Resources/themes
- Right click on desktop and choose personalize
- Pick the first theme and change the color and wallpaper as you like.


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…

EDIT:
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!

I really like this theme. Unlike the theme mentioned in the previous comment, this one actually has a good inactive title color scheme as well. However, if I right click on an icon in the taskbar, the pin appears over the popup window, messing everything up. :(

Oh, never mind. I know how to fix this. I just used the aero.msstyles from "themes/AeroDark" (link in previous comment), copied it to "themes/Default Style", and renamed it to "Default Style.msstyles". Now that pin icon disappeared.

Yeah, I'm still getting problem with understanding how to "patch" the theme. Do you mind making needed adjustments and uploading it, please?

Unfortunately atm I just don't have the time to relearn what I need to know to make the changes.
You should ask at those forums at least though. Post a link to here and I'm sure someone will be interested enough to fix it.
