    Microsoft never once said anything about the Aero theme making a full return to any preview or final builds of Windows 10. They said they would look into it and maybe offer a little something. That little something was the blur they later added.

    The default theme is so bright white it's like staring at the sun. A flat, rectangular sun. They didn't allow colors by default only because it wouldn't match the blinding white metro apps.

    I believe a 3rd party program edits the registry to make the taskbar transparent, isn't so?

    I just cant get this aero glass working. I installed the UXStyle, loaded aero vista, and this is what I get. Is there something I'm missing here (well obviously there is but damned if I can find it)?

    If you look at the tiltle bar where it says 'Personalise', it's not transparent, more like drawn on glass.

    I saw in one of your posts that you use Aero glass for 8.1. Is that what I need? I have tried to install it but I got weird effects. I even tried the beta for Win10 but that didn't work at all for me. So I guess I need to try and install Aero Glass again, right?

    Maybe i can offer some conveniance here, it's my installer from the times before my legit version :cool2:.

    Save with a name you like and create a subfolder 'files' with all AeroGlass files. Run the script an install AG or remove :cool2:.

    Tested on my Win 10 Pro with success.

    Code:
        @echo off
    :: Code by s1ave77
        title AERO GLASS INSTALLER by s1ave77
        mode con cols=75 lines=30

        echo UAC.ShellExecute "%~fs0", "", "", "runas", 1 >> "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"
        "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"
