No, not without porting and not the complete theme, Taskbar and Start Menu will be lost

grim have a look...  This may be good news for themes for windows 10. Not sure about the taskbar buttons though.

Would have been great if it was real, I have give up hope on Windows 10 though and I think Tihiy may have as well as I have not seen him announce any recent working versions of SIB for a long while now.

Yeah, the min I loaded up the preview to try what was shown.. I was just sad. To bad its a mock up 8(   To make things worst, jumplist now are no longer skin-able. The only company I know that can pull off all of these shortcomings is Stardock. I might start developing for that program if it makes it to windows 10. (Thats if they can get things skinned on the modern ui)

Tweaking the Start Menu and various flyouts may not be totally impossible - they are handled in XAML now, and so everything is declared in markup.  Not sure how injection into the EXE or DLL will work, as they are modern apps, and so will have various encryption and protection mechanisms.

I'm using a new OS X theme for Windows 10, but i can't import some parts from the OSX visual style i have on Windows 7
But it's says " error testing MsStyles file - There was an error applying the Test MsStyles file, this usually signals an error in the MsStyles file "
Could you please help me ?
Here are the 2 themes
OSX visual style for Win 10                                  http://www.filedropper.com/elcapitan
OSX visual style for Win 7                                    http://www.filedropper.com/snowleopard   
I tried only the caption buttons ( close )

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 ?
