Mac os X F os theme for Windows 8.1 by ZEUSosX
Mac os X F os theme for Windows 8.1
Mac os X Fos for Windows 8.1 theme is made for using ONLY to a WINDOWS 8.1 system.

Back to the future, [ no more windows 10]  , with a theme with default rounded corners of explorer's window, in os X style , made from ZEUSosX for Windows 8.1.

My work is based on the spirit of os X, and not a copy of it.

Designed, under my personal taste, with new kind of navigation and of traffic buttons, and much more in many sections.
Also the use of white Text color to the main window  Titlebar area gives a different look than Apple's osx versions,  i tried to give a white text on transparent background as i find this like a challenge.

Fos to Greek means 'light' and 'macos' in ancient greek dorian language means 'length'.
In ancient and in nowdays Hellenic (=Greek) [Active CODE] language, every letter, and every word is a specific number, and it has a specific meaning.
ZEUS ( or DEUS or DIAS) is Master of immortal Gods in Hellenic (=Greek) Active CODE [arithmetic machine logic] language, and APPLE is the given gift from ZEUS .

So the name of the THEME choosen from Hellenic = GREEK language and civilization.


Mac os X Fos theme have variations just for the 2 categories of scaling, Normal 100%, and Medium 125% , the Medium 125% version named as Fos125(so themes like Fos125, FoSwT125 or FoSwTd125  must be used only to scaling Medium 125% >  So depend to what categories of scaling you select to your system, you must use the correct themes.


so go to

Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display

and see if it is check the button : Normal 100%  or the  Medium 125%

If it is checked the button  Medium 125% then use only to this category the Fos125, FoSwT125 or FoSwTd125  themes.

If it is checked the button Normal 100% then use all the other themes, like the Fos100, FoSwT100 or FoSwTd100.

Also to

Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display

check the 'let me choose one scaling level for all my displays'.

To the change Only the text size, to all categories you must set TEXT SIZE 9 and check also the bold.

---------

The named T theme can be used to both  Normal 100%  or the  Medium 125%  but has not made to have stripes to details and content mode, it is just an experimental style made.

-----------------------

The themes Fos100, Fos125 and the theme T , have dark taskbar and white text and images in it.

The themes FoSwT100, FoSwT125, FoSwTd100 and FoSwTd125 have white semi transparent taskbar  and black text and images in it.

All themes having 1 pixel vertical separator, except the experimental theme T which has a wider 9 pixel one so it is easier to drag it if you have a touch system.

===================================

After the Applying of the themes and the utilities needed, we have Mac OS X  selecting folder appearance, stripes to details and content view and symmetry to our windows 8.1 system.

Also Details Pane to the right part of window and Preview pane to the Top.

Instructions included to the pack.

I use the Aegean Os X style Icons which is an ICONS Installer (ipack) I made, compatible to use, for Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.
zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/Aeg…

This is a Mac OS X port for Windows 8.1 , made by Pavlos Pitselas (ZEUS osX ) 2016

MADE IN GREECE (= Hellas).



==============================




I N S T R U C T I O N S       (included to the pack)

There are on this download, Themes and visual styles that can be used only on Windows 8.1 .

-------------------

UNZIP the file using 7zip  www.7-zip.org/download.html

go to :

Control Panel\User Accounts and Family Safety\User Accounts  

select 'Change User Acount Control settings' and set the slider down to 'never notify' position.

restart.

1. A. To use the visual styles ( mstyle) to your windows 8.1 system,  

use the patcher: for Windows 8.1 operating systems download from : 

uxstyle.com

or any alternative > search to web for patcher for  windows 8.1 


B. Then Install the freeware utility OldNewExplorer Version from (the bottom of web page) :

www.msfn.org/board/topic/17037…

When install it DO NOT CHEK the 'Show details pane to bottom', because I have setted different construction in code,
and this may product mess to your system, so please Do not check this option. 

C. For be transparent titlebars and borders at themes needed to download the Aero Glass for Win8.1 utility from  www.glass8.eu

PLEASE  when install the  Aero Glass for Win8.1 utility, open its folder, normally is at C:/AeroGlass

attention Uncheck the atlas option square when installing  Aero Glass, my themes does not need it, if you install the theme will not look as it is.

if by false you install it :


1 . if there is inside it a png image [possible named win8cp] then cut this and save it to a safe folder].

For working properly my themes do not need this png image> they work without it.

I have made my visual style/themes version of circle style corners of the explorer window, no more square, no matter if you use transparency or not.

or 2. uninstall it, and re install it , and uncheck the atlas option , during the installation procedure.


D. After you have already download and install OldNewExplorer, you can download and install LEFTSIDER , for setting the min,max, close buttons to the left of explorer window.

www.askvg.com/leftsider-move-w…


======================
Optional :

Use my Aegean Blue os X style Icons for Windows, ipack, which installs aytomatically to your system. Have a look at zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/Aeg…


2. Copy the folder 'OS X  Cursors' , to C:/Windows/Cursors

Copy the 'Mac os X  Wallpapers'  of this pack  to  C:/Windows/Web/Wallpaper.

Copy the  'Mac os X  sounds'  of this pack  to  C:\Windows\Media

3. Copy all the folders included in the folder  ' Themes ' [after unzip all files], and paste them  to  C:/Windows/Resources/Themes  , 

(provided C is your Windows drive).

4. Open  "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes" and choose the theme you prefer, select it, double clik to the theme.

-------------------

Themes work to Normal 100%, [except those that contain the 125 text]
as the code strech less than the other options of scaling.
so go to :

Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display

and check the button : Medium 100%

Logout/login

-----------------

A theme that has named with a number 125 at the end (for example Fos125) means that works ONLY to Medium 125% setting :

so go to

Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display

and check the button : Medium 125%

Logout/login

-------------------------

No Larger 150% style themes contained to this pack.

--------------------------- 

After applying a theme nomatter if it is for example for Normal 100% , please DO THIS :

go to

Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display

and check the button : Medium 125%

ΤΗΕΝ ΑGΑΙΝ 

go to

Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display

and check the button : Normal 100%

Logout/login


This must be done, because the windows system 'holds' some parameters looking and for example scrollbars do not appear as 
they should, so if you do this, this correct that.

if you choose a theme for  Medium 125%, after applying it, please DO THIS :

go to

Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display

and check the button : Larger 150%

Logout/login

ΤΗΕΝ ΑGΑΙΝ 

go to

Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display

and check the button : Medium 125%

etc  etc


5. go to Control Panel\User Accounts and Family Safety\User Accounts  select 'Change User Acount Control settings' and set the

slider up to the default 'notify me when apps try to make changes to my  computer' position.


6. To this download there is a folder named DeskTop Icons Replacement

Copy this to a safe place , for example to C:\DeskTop Icons Replacement

Now make right clik to desktop, select 'personalize' , then at the top left select 'Change Dsktop icons'.

A small window appears. 

Now if you want to change the native appearance of some or all of the system Desktop icons, we do this.

Select the icon we like to change, then select the button 'Change icon', another small window appears, select browse, and then at addressbar paste the adress of the folder contain our new icons.

To this case C:\DeskTop Icons Replacement

press the ----> and then the icons appear, choose that you prefer.

So if you prefer the white Recycle bin that recent os X versions use, you can change it with this method.


====================================

Tips

a.For dissapearing the status bar at the bottom of explorer's window , I recomend to deselect the option from OldNewExplorer, deselecting the 'show status bar' button , NO use the control panel option===> NO this>
Control PanelAll Control Panel Items select 'FOLDER OPTIONS', select 'view' and deselect the 'Show Status bar', may mess your system, when OldNewExplorer is installed.

Please use the OldNewExplorer utility option.


b.Setting small title font on titlebar :
go to 
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display

and set to the section 'Change only the text size' to '9' to all categories and select/check the 'bold' option.

c. to Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display  
please having alays check the 
'Let me choose one scaling level for all my displays'

-----------


d. MAKING SOME APPLICATION WHICH DOES NOT START WITH THE START OF WINDOWS, ENABLE TO START.

[ATTENTION, DO THIS ONLY IF YOU TRUST THOSE APPLICATION]

FOR leftsider,  for example  :

For starting with windows start up , go to 

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items   

and select Folder options >

then go to 'view' category and select >  'Show hidden files and folders'. Then go to :

C:/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/Startup 

and add a shortcut of the leftsider  or any program you want to start with start up of your system.

Then go again [OPTIONALLY] go to 

control panel/clasic view/folder options

then go to view and deselect 'Show hidden files and folders'.

(do the same for any other application, but only if you trust it, and does not automatically work with the start up of windows)

[if you want also to uninstall an application , like leftsider and reinstall a new version of it, you have first go to :

C:/Users[enter your username here]/AppData/Local/VirtualStore/Program Files

and delete the folder called "leftsider" = delete the folder with the name of the application , in this case current "leftsider".]

-----------------------


e. How to change the looking of a folder when you have installed my imageres dll which contain mac os x  style icons.


If you want to change the looking of a folder, then make right clik to the folder, select 'properties', then select 'customize' and then 'change icon' and then replace the :

%SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll
to

%SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll


select the folder you prefer

that's it.

-----------------------


f.  Unchecked the 'Use check boxes to select items', if it is checked, so go to

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items

and select 'View' category , and search for the 'Use check boxes to select items'

If it is checked , when you select to your system a file, you must double clik the Text, and not the Folder Icon image of the file, because the Text has the property for open the folder.

So it is better unchecked the 'Use check boxes to select items' .

Taskbar menu shutdown etc for windows 7, 8.1, 10 by ZEUSosX
Taskbar menu shutdown etc for windows 7, 8.1, 10
I have made simple customizable menus that pin it to taskbar and can shutdown the pc from there with just 2 clicks, one for opening the menu and the second to select the shutdown. This is very useful for windows 8.1 system, but can used to 7 and 10 as it is faster process than the windows 7 and windows 10 . Ok there some 3rd party applications which also do this, mine is just a simplier option.

If you want you can just pin the shutdown shortcut to taskbar so to terminate the system directly (1 clik).  I have made it so to shut down to some seconds not direct.
Why ? Because i have also made another shotcut which stops the shutdown, so if we have change our mind to stop the shutdown in the meanwhile, we use the cancel shutdown shortcut> ofcourse you can also pin that to the taskbar.

Personally i use those shortcuts from the menu as see in screen shot.
It is full customizable anything, you can add or delete anything you like, it is just shortcuts and folders, so it does not need any program, it works direct to your system, and you have direct access and you can add anything. These are toolbars you add to taskbar, when you go to > right clik to taskbar and then select New toolbar.

Due to Deviant ART's policy concerning executable files> like the shutdown.exe, so I've had to upload it out of Deviant Art.

So that's the reason that I will upload some time later.

i os style in Folders preview.
This is a preview to an experimental code visual style for Windows 8.1.

No os x style stripes to this, but I use to the content the separator, so to look like to an ios style, with gray surround surface.

No windows 10 more, I find  Windows 8.1 a more stable system for  my system, so it's possible to release something for Windows 8.1 and if in future have the chance, to install windows 7 the real OS, I will also.

That's it.

======================================

IF YOU HAVE A 32BIT SYSTEM  GO TO :

C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Age2HD\resources\_common\drs

Select the folder : 'Sounds',  then copy paste it .

ps The sounds became from Age of Mythology, so that's a bit classic Greek, and THEY ARE NOT my property, that's why I set them to Fan Art category.

Colored Themes add to Macosx LynX  for Windows 10 by ZEUSosX
Colored Themes add to Macosx LynX for Windows 10
I add to my Macosx LynX for Windows 10 zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/Mac…  some new Colored Themes.

That means that you have to re download and copy paste all the themes and the visual styles from my pack(everything containing in the 'themes' folder of the pack, copy paste ) so first apply aero, and then  copy paste my new updated pack of themes and use them.

That is very important to be as refer. 

Only the active window takes color to my colored themes. 

so download again the theme pack, and as colored themes, you have to use the themes named  'auto', for example LynX100auto,  LynXtouch100auto  if you use 100%  or LynX125auto, LynXtouch125auto if you use 125%

so go to

Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display

press your mouse to the Text named '...use this display settings..''

A new window open, see at the right part of it where it appears the text 'Change the size of Text,apps, and other items:' Then it has a number.

If that number is 100% then you will use themes that named so , for example LynX100auto,  LynXtouch100auto

If that number is 125% then you will use themes that named so , for example LynX125auto, LynXtouch125auto


But FIRST re install all themes [i mean copy/paste, and replace the old ones] .

So copy all the folders included in the folder  ' Themes ' [after unzip all files, and paste them  to  C:/Windows/Resources/Themes  , 

provided C is your Windows drive).

Open  ["C:\Windows\Resources\Themes"] and choose the theme u want, select it, double clik to the theme.

---------------

Only the active window take color , and this color is the same of the taskbars.

Now if you want to change the color, use the  'Color and Appearance Change the color of your taskbar' , which normally does not exist to windows 10, but you can open it via using  the number  '1. Color and Appearance Change the color of your taskbar'  shortcut that exist to the useful shortcuts I made useful shortcuts.zip

You can select any color, and then with the sliders you can set at 'Show color mixer', you can control, hue, saturation and brightnes.

So with this method you can have any color to the titlebar and borders of your active window.

(The older 'transparent' [if use Aero Glass] themes, were set and still not having color at titlebar and borders because of choice by me, always independent from taskbar/start menu, for many reasons.)

===========================

The preview picture appears imac with my theme, and a background that will not included to the theme pack, that background is a work of photographer Chris Burkar, I free download it from web  s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/sur…  and use it to my personal system only. Apple use it at the new imac presentation.

----------------------------

Design.

Designed, under my personal taste, with new kind of navigation and of traffic buttons, and much more in many sections. 
Also the use of white Text color to the main window  Titlebar area gives a different look than Apple's osx versions,  I tried to give a white text on transparent background as i find this like a challenge, firstly for win 8.1 and now for windows 10.

I also made different kind of Aqua/Aegean Sea blue folders, different of those dark gray blue that Apple use the last years, and different from the recent over colored (?) one, a balance inspiration between modern ios forms and the older light blue folders used since Tiger version, but different from both as also.

My themes based more to the impression, and to the soul feeling that made the schemes and the colors.

====================

Themes

The code and the images that made to Themes, is different and the Themes consist 2 categories (100% and  125%) depending the scaling that you use to your system. To fit the images of the theme well, you must choose the correct Theme. 

LynX theme have variations just for the 2 categories of scaling, Normal 100%, and Medium 125% , the Medium 125% version named as LynX125(so themes like  LynX125, LynXclassic125,  LynXclassicW125 or LynXtouch125  must be used only to scaling Medium 125% >  So depend to what categories of scaling you select to your system, you must use the correct themes.

so go to

Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display

press your mouse to the Text named '...use this display settings..''

A new window open, see at the right part of it where it appears the text 'Change the size of Text,apps, and other items:' Then it has a number.

If that number is 100% then you will use themes that named so , for example LynX100, LynXclassic100,  LynXclassicW100 or LynXtouch100. 

If that number is 125% then you will use themes that named so , for example LynX125, LynXclassic125,  LynXclassicW125 or LynXtouch125. 

---

updated *****

also If that number is 100% then you will use themes that named so , for example   LynX100auto,  LynXtouch100auto

If that number is 125% then you will use themes that named so , for example  LynX125auto, LynXtouch125auto

----------------------

The Themes having the classic name (for example  LynXclassic125,  LynXclassicW125 etc) have compact brushed surfaces, the rest themes are transparent if we use a freeware utility like AeroGlass.

The LynXtouch themes have 9 pixel= fatter vertical separators so it's more ease to drag them, as also the LynXclassic themes, the LynX themes have only 1 pixel separator.

The themes having the letter W like the  LynXclassicW100 or the  LynXclassicW125 are experimentally themes having White compact taskbar.

If we want to make their taskbar a little transparent we have to use some freeware utilities like: 

Taskbar Transparency v2  zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/Tas…
(set a value around 180 - 220 or any you like)

or 

wTrans zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/wTr…  
(set a value around 180 - 200 or any you like)


********

UPDATED with colored Titlebar/borders themes. 

Also to the new themes having the word  named  'auto', for example LynX100auto,  LynXtouch100auto  if you use 100%  or LynX125auto, LynXtouch125auto if you use 125%, can have to their active window same color with the taskbar.


=================================

INSPIRATION BASIS

LynX originated from the Greek word "λύγξ", en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lynx

Macos (1)word meaning : 'mecos'= length in ancient Athenian also Ionian language and in Byzantine and in nowdays Greek, and 'macos' in doric and aeolian ancient greek dialects and in nowdays tsaconian= spartan dialect that still speaken in some villages in southeastern Pelloponese[south Greece], where is my hometown, and also in Ancient Greek Macedonian and Aeolian Thessalian dialects.

IN ancient and in nowdays Hellenic (=Greek) [Active CODE] language, every letter, and every word is a specific number, and it has a specific meaning.
ZEUS ( or DEUS or DIAS) is Master of immortal Gods in Hellenic (=Greek) Active CODE [arithmetic machine logic] language, and APPLE is the given gift from ZEUS . 

So the name of the THEME chosen from Hellenic = GREEK language and civilization.

========================================

APPEARANCE AND WORKING WITH THE THEME

My work is not just a 'normal' windows theme. With new code added by me, affecting direct to Windows system files , Windows becomes behaving like Mac OS X to the appearing mode of selecting folders. 

When for instance we select a folder as 'icon', we have separate mouse over image for the folder and other image for the text. 

When we select a folder as 'details' we can have stripes, and mouse over images like mac os X , blue hover and white text .

I use Oldnewexplorer freeware utility, for apply my code, so no system files replacing needed for the apply of the new system file's code, so I use  Oldnewexplorer also for disappear the Ribbon.

With additional code added the Preview Pane set to Top, and Details Pane set to right (like to osx) .

Also Folderband (is the command bar i which is written 'Organise', 'Open' etc) is included to the preview pane.

That means that if we press to the keyboard Alt+P Preview pane appears --> also Folderband at the top of Preview pane.

Now via Folderband we can select 'Organise' -->' layout' and then select which pane we want to appear (for example we select Details pane) or deselect that we dont want.

if we want to disappear Preview Pane we press again to the keyboard Alt+P .

Attention: if both Preview Pane and Details Pane are appeared, then we will have this kind of appearance:

Details pane will give the preview of the current file or folder we select with our mouse and also the details text description of it 
Preview pane will give the preview of the folder that contains the selected file or folder. [except if the current file is a text or music file or video]

now if we want to have to the Preview pane the preview of the current file or image etc we must first close the Details pane.

Also, if we like to have always shown the Folderband just open the preview pane and set the vertical slider at his minimum position to the top.


=======================================

I N S T R U C T I O N S      

There are on this download, Themes and visual styles that can be used only on Windows 10 .

Check Windows 10 Build Version

After installation, restart your system.

----------------------------------------

B. Then Install the freeware utility OldNewExplorer Version from (the bottom of web page) :

www.msfn.org/board/topic/17037…

When install it :

Do NO check the second choice 'Use libraries: hide Folders from this Pc', as this option does not work properly to Windows 10 RTM Build 10240, since now.

DO NOT CHEK the 'Show details pane to bottom', because I have setted different construction in code,
and this may product mess to your system, so please Do not check this option.

----------

C. For the transparent themes needed to download the Aero Glass for Win8.1 utility from  www.glass8.eu
The non transparent theme LynxClassic do not need it it.

PLEASE  when install the  Aero Glass for Win10 utility, open its folder, normally is at C:/AeroGlass

attention Uncheck the atlas option square when installing  Aero Glass, my themes does not need it, if you install the theme will not look as it is.

if by false you install it :


1 . if there is inside it a png image  then cut this and save it to a safe folder].

For working properly my themes do not need this png image> they work without it.

I have made my visual style/themes version of circle style corners of the explorer window, no more square, no matter if you use transparency or not.

or 2. uninstall it, and re install it , and uncheck the atlas option , during the installation procedure.


D. After you have already download and install OldNewExplorer, you can download and install LEFTSIDER , for setting the min,max, close buttons to the left of explorer window.

www.askvg.com/leftsider-move-w…

============

For appearing the theme as should :

go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display and set to the section 'Change only the text size' to '9' to all categories and select/check the 'bold' option.

To my system this option 'Change of font size to 9 to all categories' works only to Normal 100% settings, so please first :

go to the desktop, right clik, select 'Display settings' :

and set the slider to the left  100%

Signout/Signin

Change the 'Change only the text size' to '9' to all categories and select/check the 'bold' option.

if your native or prefer system scaling is 100% JUST leave the system to 100%.

-----------

If your native or prefer system scaling is 125% , go to the desktop, right clik, select 'Display settings' :

and set the slider to the middle at  125%

Signout/Signin


======================

2. Copy the folder 'OS X  Cursors' , to C:/Windows/Cursors

Copy the 'Mac os X  Wallpapers'  of this pack  to  C:/Windows/Web/Wallpaper.

Copy the  'Mac os X  sounds'  of this pack  to  C:\Windows\Media

3. Copy all the folders included in the folder  ' Themes ' [after unzip all files, and copy them  to  C:/Windows/Resources/Themes  ,

provided C is your Windows drive).

4. Open  ["C:\Windows\Resources\Themes"] and choose the theme u want, select it, double clik to the theme.

-------------------

Themes with a 100 at their name, work to Normal 100%, [except those that contain the 125 text]
as the code strech less than the other options of scaling.

so go to the desktop, right clik, select 'Display settings' :

and set the slider to the left  100%

Signout/Signin

-----------------

A theme that has named with a number 125 at the end (for example Lynx125) means that works ONLY to 125% setting :

so go to the desktop, right clik, select 'Display settings' :

and set the slider to the middle to 125%

Signout/Signin

-------------------------

No Larger 150% style themes contained to this pack.

---------------------------

After applying a theme nomatter if it is forexample for Normal 100% , please DO THIS :

go to the desktop, right clik, select 'Display settings' :

and set the slider to the middle so to 125%

Signout/Signin

ΤΗΕΝ ΑGΑΙΝ

go to the desktop, right clik, select 'Display settings' :

and set the slider to the left  100%

Signout/Signin



This must be done, because the windows system 'holds' some parameters looking and forexample scrollbars do not appear as
they should, so if you do this, this correct that.(also this appears the blue icons to positions that the system 'holds' the looking of the older yellow microsoft ones, if you have install my imageres.dll with my blue style icons, see at ICONS session)

if you choose a theme for  Medium 125%, after applying it, please DO THIS :

go to the desktop, right clik, select 'Display settings' :

and set the slider to the left  100%

Signout/Signin


ΤΗΕΝ ΑGΑΙΝ

go to the desktop, right clik, select 'Display settings' :

and set the slider to the middle so to 125%

Signout/Signin

etc  etc


5. If you wish go to Control Panel\User Accounts\User Accounts  select 'Change User Acount Control settings' and set the

slider up to the default 'notify me when apps try to make changes to my  computer' position.


6. To this download there is a folder named DeskTop Icons Replacement

Copy this to a safe place , for example to C:\DeskTop Icons Replacement

Now make right clik to desktop, select 'personalize' , then select 'themes', and then select 'Desktop icon settings'.

A small window appears.

Now if you want to change the native appearance of some or all of the system Desktop icons, we do this.

Select the icon we like to change, then select the button 'Change icon', another small window appears, select browse, and then at addressbar paste the adress of the folder contain our new icons.

To this case C:\DeskTop Icons Replacement

press the ----> and then the icons appear, choose that you prefer.

So if you prefer the white Recycle bin that recent os X versions use, you can change it with this method.

If not see changing the icon, make right clik to taskbar, select Task manager, ('more details'), AND restart explorer.

====================================

Tips

a.For dissapearing the status bar at the bottom of explorer's window , I recommend to deselect the option from OldNewExplorer, deselecting the 'show status bar' button , No use the control panel option===> no this>
Control PanelAll Control Panel Items select 'FOLDER OPTIONS', select 'view' and deselect the 'Show Status bar', may mess your system, when OldNewExplorer is installed.
Please use the OldNewExplorer option.


HOW TO CONTROL THE BRIGHTNESS OF YOUR TITLEBAR AND BORDERS OF YOUR TRANSPARENT THEME'S WINDOW

b. For controlling the amount of brightness of your transparent window (theme) please go to and from the Download link useful shortcuts.zip , download the Useful shortcuts for Windows 10, there exist some which open some windows  that does not exist more to Windows 10 like '1. Color and Appearance Change the color of your taskbar' ,  or '2. Desktop Background Wallpapers' etc With this '1. Color and Appearance Change the color of your taskbar' , you will control the 'intensity' and the 'brightness' , in fact how much dark will the titlebars and borders of the transparent themes windows should like to be.


b2.  COLORED THEMES.

The themes named  'auto', for example LynX100auto,  LynXtouch100auto  if you use 100%  or LynX125auto, LynXtouch125auto if you use 125% having color titlebar/borders same with taskbar.

Only the active window take color , and this color is the same of the taskbars.

Now if you want to change the color, use the  'Color and Appearance Change the color of your taskbar' , which normally does not exist to windows 10, but you can open it via using  the number  '1. Color and Appearance Change the color of your taskbar'  shortcut that exist to the useful shortcuts I made useful shortcuts.zip

You can select any color, and then with the sliders you can set at 'Show color mixer', you can control, hue, saturation and brightnes.

So with this method you can have any color to the titlebar and borders of your active window.

--------

c.  d. MAKING SOME APPLICATION WHICH DOES NOT START WITH THE START OF WINDOWS, ENABLE TO START.

[ATTENTION, DO THIS ONLY IF YOU TRUST THOSE APPLICATION]

FOR leftsider,  for example  :

For starting with windows start up , go to

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items  

and select File Explorer options >

then go to 'View' category and select >  'Show hidden files and folders'. Then go to :

C:/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/Startup

and add a shortcut of the leftsider  or any program you want to start with start up of your system.

Then go again [OPTIONALLY] go to

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items  

and select File Explorer options >

then go to view and deselect 'Show hidden files and folders'.

(do the same for any other application, but only if you trust it, and does not automatically work with the start up of windows)

[if you want also to uninstall an application , like leftsider and reinstall a new version of it, you have first go to :

C:/Users[enter your username here]/AppData/Local/VirtualStore/Program Files

and delete the folder called "leftsider" = delete the folder with the name of the application , in this case current "leftsider".]

-------

HOW TO CONTROL LEFTSIDER AND SETTING THE CLOSE, MAX, MIN BUTTONS EITHER TO LEFT OR RIGHT

There are some programs (such as 'writte'/'worpad' which exist to C:\Windows  [its the last file]  that because they use the left side of titlebar, the close,max, min buttons 'hidden' from their ribbon style buttons, so to this case go to the right part of the taskbar, press your mouse to the + button and a small window will appear having the left sider  shortcut, if you select 1 time the close,max, min buttons go to right, so you can use the programs such those having ribbon to the left titlebar side, if you select another time the close,max, min buttons, go left, so you can control it from there.


-------------------


d. How to change the looking of a folder when you have installed my imageres dll which contain mac os x  style icons.


If you want to change the looking of a folder, then make right clik to the folder, select 'properties', then select 'customize' and then 'change icon' and then replace the :

%SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll
to

%SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll


select the folder you prefer

that's it.


-----------------------


e.  Unchecked the 'Use check boxes to select items', if it is checked, so go to

go to

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items  

and select File Explorer options >

then go to 'View' category , and search for the 'Use check boxes to select items'

If it is checked , when you select to your system a file, you must double clik the Text, and not the Folder Icon image of the file, because the Text has the property for open the folder.

So it is better unchecked the 'Use check boxes to select items' .

==============================================

Bugs :

1. As refer the theme depends to be applied it's code to some 3rd party utilities, sych as uxstyle core, OldNew Explorer, AeroGlass etc

Also after 100% the themes stretched very much , i have made different code for the 100% themes, and different for the 125 % dpi settings.

Though some applications , and we like to 'open' or 'save'/'save as' a menu in details mode or to content mode, in which we have stripes, those stripes stretched.

Applications such as Notepad have not this kind of problem and work fine.

Remember as OldNew Explorer is not part of windows, sometimes is not loaded from the system, so my code is not applied, so for example the first explorer window may not applied some of the code I have set like the search icon is right of the searchbar, but if you re open there will be loaded , so goes to left as my code set it. Same if to an application like Notepad you select 'open' the window it appears without OldNew Explorer load and forexample the navigation bar has not the themes image but  a white color, but if we will re open this 'open' window it will take properties from the theme.


2. Only for the themes that have the letter W, meaning White taskbar : From what I have seen to latest version of Opera the web adress Text dissapear to the Addressbar section, while the old good portable version of Opera appear and work ok.

But this bug is either a microsoft failure as none of the microsoft 'Ease of Access Themes' cooperating with the Addressbar Text of the latest build of Opera, or either the designers of Opera, or of both parts.

So either use opera portable, or other kind of web explorer, or use Aero theme.

----------------

Results:

So, yes there limitations, because of the windows, because of the utilities used, but this kind of theme works at the limit of what can be done.

Propably to the future I can give a no stripes different theme, that could work to all modes> 150% and bigger etc.


=================

ICONS


I have made as an optional to my themes , if users want my mac os X style blue Aegean Sea icons which other inspired and other based to the original os x ones, to download to separate pack.

Depending if you have a 64bit Windows 10 system or a 32bit Windows 10 system you can download the system file(s) that contain those icons. (imageres.dll contain those icons)

If you have a 64 bit system download my 'imageres.dll osx icons for Windows 10 64 bit' following the instructions for copy, and apply it to your system, download from :

zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/ima…

If you have a 32 bit system download my 'imageres.dll osx icons for Windows 10 32 bit' following the instructions for copy, and apply it to your system, download from
