1  Other / Other / Re: Can't use WSB anymore ( CPU load 70-80 % ) on: June 28, 2017, 10:26:20 pm
I did as you say, 3am, but the same thing happent.
Is this maybe because of some incompatibility Win 10 - latest updates - WSB ?
I am using many programs, games, etc, and my CPU never reached 80 %
That's pretty weird. The WSB does not open, at all. It's only under Task Manager.
I will keep looking, thank you very much

LE : i have a second pc at home, I5, 8 GB DDR3, GTX 980 Ti, mainboard Gigabyte ( i don't know exactly which model ) and WSB it's running great
I didn't update the Windows on the second PC, since i installed Windows 10 ( about 8-9 months ago )

3  Help / Windows 10 / caption buttons / taskbar on: February 05, 2017, 12:51:32 pm
I'm using Windows 10 ( 13939 ) and i have some issues with the caption buttons and the taskbar, with the attached visual style
The caption buttons have a bigger gap between them, than on Windows 7 ( and they are a bit smaller )
The taskbar isn't grey, i can't read the letters on the minimized applications on the taskbar
Would you please tell me how to fix those ?
I already did as Mr. Grim explained here
https://www.vistastylebuilder.com/forum/index.php?topic=2240.msg13621#msg13621
The Start Menu doesen't bother me at all, but if i could find a way to change the background color, would be great
Thank you in advance, any advices are welcome

I still use this visual style but it's hard to understand how is it possible to edit the red button ( close button ) to have a " straight X ??
Here is an attached image how it looks now to me
The X is crooked Smiley

Thank you.
But how did you fix that ? I tried for more than 2 hours.
I ask you because i want to import / change / some other parts from the Windows 7 visual style, to the Windows 10 one ( i guess, taskbar it's impossible, because under Windows 7 i made it very very tinny ) Smiley
Or maybe is my WSB version ( 1.5.0.0 ) not compatible with Windows 10 ?

Maybe the visual style - green button, was not square before, too, but i didn't notice.
I will try to modify that with Gimp.
There are two minimize buttons locations. Active and inactive, and in both of them there are 4 menus as well : normal, hot, pressed, disabled
Do i have to modify all of them ?

Thank you so much, 3am
I'd really like to know what images did you export / import / replaced
As i said, those buttons i find very very hard to modify. Now i will search on Youtube some videos about how to modify this part of visual style
The green button is not square / quadrat / like the red and the orange one.

Actually, i just made a test when i took the printscreen.
I mean, i went to : Control Panel / Personalization / Windows Color / Advanced Appearance settings / Captain buttons / and there i made the buttons a number bigger.
And then i made the printscreen.
As you can see in the first post on this thread, the buttons look ugly
I would try to modify them with Vista Style Builder, but i'm not good at Photoshop / Gimp / so it will take hours to modify those buttons, and i'm not sure if they will look better after i modify them.
3am, you said " Try replacing all of your 120dpi and 144dpi glyph images with your 96dpi glyph images "
You think they will look better / bigger, if i try this ?
How do i replace them ?
Thanks

Hello
I upgraded my monitor, from 27" 1920x1080 to 32" 2560x1440
The visual style i use it looks great, except the close / restore / minimize buttons. They are too small now.
So i tried to modify them from the Windows settings, but they look worse ( see attached image, please )

My question is : if i try to modify ( make them bigger ) with the software Windows Style Builder, do i have a chance to make those buttons to look better ?!
Thank you

Offtopic : i was able to modify the close / restore / minimize buttons, but they looks somehow rounded, on the corners.
It's very difficult to modify them, to look 100 % square
Would you give me some tips how to do that, please ? Is it possible, at all ?

After a long time, i did it, and the buttons minimize / restore / close / are squared  Cheesy
But i wish those lines - / + / x / ( when you ONLY move the mouse over the buttons ) should be more darker / black.
What's the best color for that ? Grey ? Black ?
And, on Windows & Caption Buttons > Aero > DWM Window > Controls > Captions > Window >   where exactly ? There are more expanded options.
Thank you

Did you remember the step about replacing your shell folder with a copy of the one the in 8.1 aero folder?

Will it test? Or will it neither test or apply?

It works: http://i.cubeupload.com/ziCwEA.png

Start menu is a tad off but this is a 3rd party program so I don't know if the issue is because of that or something else.

When importing did you follow these steps? http://vistastylebuilder.com/forum/index.php?topic=1895.0

Also you have to manually copy over the Shell folder from C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Aero to the location where you saved it.
Thanks a million, Panda X, i'm very happy, i thought it's impossible to make it works from W7 to W 8 / W 8.1
I will give it another try, step by step as you described.When i'm done, i'll report here, later.
Thanks again
