You need to use the latest SIB to apply any real taskbar skinning in 10.

I think you need to use this stylehack to add new taskbar elements to edit in WSB:

I don't use SIB so I don't know the details about what has changed.

You might be able to find out more information at the MSFN SIB forum or at Virtual Customs.

What element do I have to edit in to change the taskbar? Currently I'm looking in Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBar > Aero/Basic. (
Currently I am using WSB1563B with the Win8.1 patches from this post (
I've looked at other Windows 10 themes and when I open the same path there are some differences i.e. (
The theme I'm working on I started with the default Windows 10 theme.
I would like to edit the task buttons and the task bar (

I answered your initial question.

Otherwise you don't seem to know anything about making a theme. Here's some tips:

1) Make sure your theme files are patched
2) Make a copy of the Aero folder. Rename it and the msstyles in it to your theme name and put it in the Resources > Themes folder. Edit this in WSB. NEVER modify the default Aero msstyles.
3) Do your edits to only the shellstyle.dll in your theme folder
4) create a .theme file by copying the aero.theme file. Rename it to your theme name. Open it with notepad. Change the DisplayName to equal your theme name. Go to the [VisualStyles] section and make sure the Path goes to your theme folder and msstyles instead of Aero. You can also change wallpaper, sound scheme etc here.
5) Apply your theme either through WSB, Personalization in the Control Panel or right-clicking your new theme file and opening it with Windows Shell Common Dll.

Also even in 7 I don't recommend using default VSB. Instead use the WSB Beta version. It has tons of improvements in it and is easier to use. You can find it here:

That's all I've got to say. If you still can't get things working then you're on your own unless someone else tries to help you.

Changing the values in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Aero\Shell\NormalColor\shellstyle.dll worked. But, once I open Windows Style Builder and Test my modified “aero.msstyles” file, it will not show those changes, it reverts back to the default font color. I’ve tried to copy the shellstyle.dll from C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Aero\Shell\NormalColor to .\Aero\Shell\NormalColor under which folder structure  modified msstyles file is located, but it still doesn’t help. Also, when I apply modified “aero.msstyles” file through Windows Style Builder, initially everything looks right  just like I modified it. But as soon as computer reboots, all Aero goes away and just Basic is displayed. Same thing happens if I just manually replace the file. What am I doing wrong?

You use Reshacker. Go into the UIFILE and change the foreground colors at those two locations.

Thank you for a quick response 3am. I am new to Windows style editing and learning as I go. Do you mind elaborating a little on the shellstyle editing process. I assume you are talking about editing the shellstyle.dll. Correct? Do I edit it with Reshacker or with Vista Style Builder. Any guidance you can provide will be much appreciated.

Thank you!
