1  Help / Windows 10 / Re: Centre Title Bar Text & Changing Start Button Size on: March 29, 2020, 06:12:08 pm
Well, I finally did get it working again.  Not sure how, but it did.

But then I found an even better solution.  The program "StartIsBack" has an option to increase the size of icons on the taskbar to a range of sizes, including the one I wanted.  So I just purchased that.

Just posting this in case anyone else wanted the large start button and wanted an easier way to achieve it in W10.

What the hell?  I installed the latest .NET Framework (4.8) and now the custom theme doesn't work?
3  Help / Windows 10 / Re: Centre Title Bar Text & Changing Start Button Size on: February 29, 2020, 12:06:16 pm
Yeah, I don't get it.  The problem is that if you switch to small taskbar buttons after doing this, it looks like the screenshot you posted earlier in the thread.  I never use that anyway, so I can ignore it.

Do you know how to fix this other issue I'm having?  When applying a custom theme, Firefox has some weird graphical issues on certain windows, such as the one attached.  The text on the buttons is white, when it should be black.  There are other minor issues here, too.

The same thing happened on Windows 8, but was fixable by moving three specific dll files into the Firefox directory.  This fix only caused glitches on 10 (like Firefox refusing to close, or opening itself many times whenever I tried to launch it).

Any thoughts?

Lol, ignore me...  I've got it working now.  Thanks so much for all of your help.

For some reason, if you JUST edit the large start button one, it doesn't work.  You need to edit the small one too.  Really weird, but I'm happy with it now.

Sorry about the multiple posts.  I was trying to edit my post above and somehow did this instead, lol.  :/

Tried editing it there.  Still isn't working.  It just makes the start button smaller (well, the flag icon part of it).

Really don't know what I'm missing here.  Can you please upload a mystyles file with the LARGE start button image replaced by the attached image?  Just to see if I'm doing something wrong.

I hope so.  This is the last major tweak I want to make to Windows 10.
9  Help / Windows 10 / Re: Centre Title Bar Text & Changing Start Button Size on: February 16, 2020, 04:53:34 pm
Hahaha...  oh dear.  I had forgotten to actually install UxStyle.

I've got the text centered now.  Well, on ribbon windows anyway, but I'm pretty sure I know how to make it work on all windows.

Start button has definitely changed but it's gotten smaller, even though I put a larger image in.  Really weird.  Do you have any idea how to fix this?  For reference, the original image found in Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBar > Aero > Start Button > Large Icons Start Button is 20x20px (for 96 dpi).  I imported the attached image and it just made the button smaller.  Any thoughts?
10  Help / Windows 10 / Re: Centre Title Bar Text & Changing Start Button Size on: February 16, 2020, 04:25:00 pm
Okay, I'm using that now.

Still getting nothing.  The text is still left-aligned and when I replace the start button image, it doesn't change when I apply the theme...

It just always loads up the default Windows 10 theme (the blue one).  I really don't know what I'm doing wrong here; I never had issues like this on Windows 8.1.
11  Help / Windows 10 / Re: Centre Title Bar Text & Changing Start Button Size on: February 15, 2020, 12:17:18 pm
I'm a noob at this stuff...

I'm using the same build of the program that I used on Windows 8.  Can you link me to the best one for 10?
12  Help / Windows 10 / Re: Centre Title Bar Text & Changing Start Button Size on: February 14, 2020, 07:35:50 pm
Will try again later.  I'm on 2019 LTSC, but I'm guessing that shouldn't matter?

What about the start button thing?  Possible?
13  Help / Windows 10 / Re: Centre Title Bar Text & Changing Start Button Size on: February 12, 2020, 07:44:31 pm
Didn't work.  :/  Still aligned to left.
14  Help / Windows 10 / Centre Title Bar Text & Changing Start Button Size on: February 09, 2020, 06:53:23 pm
Is it possible to centre the title bar text, like in Windows 8/8.1, using WSB?

Also, is there a way to increase the size of the start button like it was in 8.1?  I'm currently using Open-Shell and a custom start button image to do this, but was wondering if it's possible using WSB.  All the other icons on the taskbar can be made larger using 7+ Taskbar Tweaker, so I'm wondering if something similar can be done with the start button.
15  Help / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 / Re: Is it possible to change the maximise/minimise glyphs for inactive title bars? on: April 05, 2019, 05:39:24 pm
If you make the buttons look like glyphs there's no way to make different glyphs for maximize and restore.

No idea what Grim did. I'd have to look at the msstyle.

I've attached it.  Would you actually be able to take a quick look and point me in the right direction please?  If I can't get inactive title bars the way I wanted them at the start of this thread, then making them behave the way they do in this theme would be satisfactory to me.
16  Help / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 / Re: Is it possible to change the maximise/minimise glyphs for inactive title bars? on: April 04, 2019, 06:19:11 pm
I also have another question...

How did Grim01 make it so that inactive title bars were darker than active ones?  I've copied the properties exactly from Default Style.mystyles (Windows & Caption Buttons > Aero > DWM Window > Frames > Window > Top > Inactive) into my own theme, but my inactive title bars are still lighter than the active ones...
17  Help / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 / Re: Is it possible to change the maximise/minimise glyphs for inactive title bars? on: April 04, 2019, 05:51:36 pm
You can only have different inactive button images for inactive windows.

You could always just change your active and inactive button images to look like different colored glyphs and make the actual glyph images transparent.

The issue with this is that I wouldn't be able to have separate maximise and restore "glyphs" on the image...  It would be the same for the middle button whether it was supposed to be the maximise or the restore glyph.

Is there any other way around this?  :/
18  Help / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 / Is it possible to change the maximise/minimise glyphs for inactive title bars? on: April 03, 2019, 06:58:41 pm
I've been messing with this software again lately, and one thing I really want to do is change the colour of the glyphs for the maximise, minimise, help, and close buttons.

I've made them white in the Windows & Caption Buttons > Aero > DWM Window > Controls > Captions > Window > Restore/Maximize Button, but can't seem to find where (if it's even possible) to change them for inactive title bars.

Can someone please shed some light on this issue?  Ideally, I want white title bar text and button glyphs for active title bars, and black title bar text and button glyphs for inactive title bars.

Thanks!
19  Help / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 / Re: Inactive title bar colour on theme with white title bar text. on: April 19, 2018, 11:47:44 am
I figured it out!  (sorry for spamming posts, but the 8.1 section of the site seems dead anyway)

Turns out it's the "COLORIZATIONOPACITY" value that needs to be changed to do precisely what I wanted.  Many thanks for all the help and putting up with my questions, 3am.  Smiley
20  Help / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 / Re: Inactive title bar colour on theme with white title bar text. on: April 19, 2018, 06:23:02 am
Still can't get it.  Changing any of those values has zero effect on the style once I apply it.
21  Help / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 / Re: Inactive title bar colour on theme with white title bar text. on: April 19, 2018, 06:10:49 am

No, I was using version 15.0.0.  Thanks for letting me know about this version.  I'll mess around with it a bit and get back to you.  Smiley
22  Help / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 / Re: Inactive title bar colour on theme with white title bar text. on: April 18, 2018, 04:27:20 pm
Windows & Caption Buttons > Aero > DWM Window > Frames > Window > Top > Inactive image

There's no "Window" under frames...

And I wouldn't even know what to do or edit once I get there anyway.  I've tried changing other things in other parts of the style and it never actually changes it when I apply (which I have to do manually by putting the files in C/Windows/Resources/Themes because the built-in thing in WSB always gives an error)...
23  Help / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 / Re: Inactive title bar colour on theme with white title bar text. on: April 16, 2018, 03:09:44 pm

Doesn't do anything on 8.1.  There has to be a way to do this using WSB.
24  Help / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 / Inactive title bar colour on theme with white title bar text. on: April 16, 2018, 06:59:54 am
Hi.  I'm using a theme called Windows 8.1 MK IV.  Essentially, all it does is change the title bar text colour (and the colour of the minimise and maximise buttons) from black to white.  There's another, similar theme out there, by "Grim01" which many people have, which does the same thing, but causes other issues on 8.1 (like the start screen screwing up when moving tiles around).  This one doesn't have that issue, but it does have other problems I'd like to fix now that I've bought this software.

I've included a .zip of the theme as it comes, without any alterations to it.  I'm using it, but with the colour changed to black, as you can see in the images I've attached.  My question is this: How do you change the background colour of the inactive title bar?  You can see from the image that it's almost exactly the same as the active title bar, which makes them a bit hard to distinguish.  Ideally, I'd like to make it a lighter version of the active colour, perhaps like "x% lighter", if possible (so that it works well with colours other than black).

The other image shows another problem that some apps have.  On Paint.net, for instance, the text on the title bar doesn't change to white.  Is there any fix for this?  Something similar happens in Firefox with certain windows and tabs.

Finally, (and this is minor as another app I have already does this, but it'd be nice to get it all done in one theme) is there a way to disable taskbar transparency using VSB?

The most important thing is the part in bold.  The rest isn't a huge deal, but any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
