The only problem I have is the color of the text in the status bars is also black. This id OK for selected windows but I'd like a little lighter color for unselected windows. Since, you're not planning to update please tell me how to do it myself.

The color of the taskbar icons? Or you mean the taskbar icons?

I suppose yes - I'm referring to your Screenshots, yes I mean the icons themselves. It's unchanged from my previous theme, while in yours, the icons are white.

Download the 'token icons' package, you can find them here on D.A. (Light and Dark version included in the package, those icons on the screenshots are the light icons)

@InCris, mate, firstly thanks for having the patience to reply. (I really sound like a n00b while talking about this, sorry)

I downloaded that already but didn't know how to get them to work. Please help, this theme and those icons are so awesome, its the only one that's actually compelled me to try it.

It's easy: Let's say for example that you have the explorer icon pinned in your taskbar, right click on the icon and then a pop up list of recent folders and the explorer little icon show up right? Right click on the little explorer icon and select properties, then a windows shows up and in that window is an option "Change icon", click on it, then go to the token icon's folder and select the icon you want. Click ok and ok again, as you see it looks like the icon hasn't changed right away but here's a trick to make it change right now, select a song and right click in it, click on "open with" and then click on "select default program" and select "windows media player" (assuming you use media player to listen to music) and then click ok, the icon should change by now. (You see, when you change a file to open with a program and then you click on to select that program, windows explorer is forced to do a "re-scan" of all the files in your system and it detects that you have already changed the taskbar icon and refreshes it. (Or just restart your windows, i guess that works too)

@Tibneo - I had some major problems with setting some themes as well. I replaced my explorer.exe file with that of another theme, but when I restarted the explorer.exe wasn't for x86, it was for x64 and thus didn't work.

As per usual, I renamed my explorer.exe by adding _old or something like that to the end, but now, I couldn't do anything to load up my desktop. I couldn't start explorer.exe, or the old one through task manager since the old one's extension was obviously now .old or something like that. I searched online for an automatic fix, like a download and found nothing.

Finally I though, "Hey, if you double click explorer.exe it will open up windows explorer, so what if I copy my explorer.exe from my other pc onto a hard drive, plug that into the laptop, then through task manager run THAT explorer.exe?" And guess what, it works!!!

So I say that you should back everything up onto a flash drive or something similar and then if things go all ape shit, you simply plug in your hard drive/flash, run the explorer.exe on the hard drive, which will bring up your normal desktop and task bar, then navigate to the locations of the files you changed and copy your default ones over. It's a real easy fix to something which would normally scare you big time if it goes wrong.

You're wrong, it's not for x64, it's for x86, i tested it myself, the files were made by me in a windows seven x86 os

I wasn't referring to this specific theme. I said "some themes". All I provided the guy with, was an easy solution or at least an easy Plan B if something DOES go wrong.

okay that was ****ing scary.
Being a customizer, sometimes I have problems and end up royally screwing myself over and losing EVERYTHING I've worked on. This happens from losing my explorer.exe file or imageres.dll file and not being able to start my computer because of it. So instead of hesitating and going straight for that restart button (which IS NOT there when you have no explorer.exe file,) I managed to fix the situation.

I did everything you instructed in the .txt file. I followed it word for word, knowing exactly what I was doing. Going into the end of the process (new task, explorer.exe) I experienced my problem. This was a big one though. It showed some error that I did not take to kindly to. After getting the error, I went to undo everything I did by deleting the new explorerframe.dll and renaming the old one back to its original name, but when I looked in System32 folder, I could not find it. Nor did I have any navigation buttons or file buttons. I began to panic. "Shit I just lost everything! ... AGAIN!!!" I thought. After closing the task manager, I clicked ctrl+alt+del to open the task manager again. I did the same thing, new task, browse (search in the instructions), looked for the explorerframe.dll file, and again, could not locate it. I panicked, my heart raced, and I think I shat two bricks. But thanks to my knowledge with hot-keys, I instantly remembered the first one I ever learned, CTRL+Z, baby! Ctrl+z, "you need administrator privileges" came up, I clicked Continue, and it deleted the new explorerframe.dll. It sent it to the recycle bin where it will be emptied. But I am still without menu bar and navigation buttons. So I hit ctrl+z once more, "You need Administrator Privileges to rename this file" CONTINUE! This renamed the file "explorerframebackup.dll to explorerframe.dll. But I am still without my task bar. So I clicked "File > Run" on my task manager, typed in explorer.exe, hit enter, and now she's back to her daddy. Oh yeah!

In other words: This didn't work for me.

Didn't work? I tested it and it worked, i'm sorry for that, but i can't tell what caused that kinda trouble, if it was from my dll files maybe other people would say that too

just been looking around the explorer window... If you have folders sorted by type, the names still arnt showing up and the details pane at the bottom is a bit hard to read. That's all i've seen so far, its a good improvement :-)

Keep at it :w00t:
