    Cool side effect,
    my personalized custom start menu tiles, background color(BackgroundColor='#343434') now have the exact same color as the system accent color, giving them even more an icon effect(being larger and filling out the tile more).

    Achieved by choosing the accent color and turning off transparency for taskbar, Start Menu & co.)
    Cool! I use something similar in the LLL Midnight though I stick with the built-in darker one, not entirely black.

    This and in case you also use "show color on start, taskbar,..": Have you noticed any accent color limitations, Cliff?
    For instance, when you disable auto color, you get the list to pick one. If you try to customize that color (see ColorizationColor) you cannot set it too dark or it will get converted to blue.

    Yep. I try to pick an off black then, meaning dark gray, from a non blue(ish) color, such as yellow based red, as opposed to purple based.
    Try a very dark grey between< green<yellow<orange<red/>

    Interesting. It didn't turn blue!
    It did got lighter however.
    The alpha should not be taken lightly: although literally 'lightly' makes all your dark color lighter...
    You see the actual color in the preview (theme personalization) but a highly lighter version in the menu and window titlebars. So it looks like a safety margin is build-in.

    I do like how the transit between black-lined window controls (close, minimize...) to white-lined can be changed just by slightly altering the colorization.

    Above I use:
    ColorizationColor=0XC2281902
    give a black-lined control

    Below:
    ColorizationColor=0XC2281202
    gives this:

    A small difference, but there are users that actually notice such details

    Windows 10 Insider Preview
       03 Jul 2016 #1846

    I tried to find the Graphics thread, but it seems to be pushed back to the end of the line, so I figured this might be the next best place to ask this question:

    When using PowerShell to install some programs, IrfanView wouldn't install. It seems to no longer be compatible with (at least) Build 14379 of Windows 10.

    So, my question is; is there any reason I want/need/require IrfanView. I'm inclined to think maybe I don't need it, but before I make a final decision, I'm asking the ones who are most experienced in this area. Youse Guys!

    I don't use IrfanView myself Wynona. I use XnView which still seems to work in the latest insider, at least the portable version does.

    @Wynona, XnView Kado mentioned is available in PowerShell PackageManagement and installs without issues in latest Insider Build:

    Additional info and links to the wallpapers are found here.
    Most of the wallpapers that were updated (glitch fixes and clouds logic) and are included in the themes attached below.

    Featuring:
    Day-night loop displayed in 14 themes.
    LLL00.zip
    LLL03.zip

    Thanks to Cliff S.

    Note   Note

    The themes use my Aero7 Red cursor.
    In order for the mouse pointer to display properly the Red cursor scheme in theme must be installed.

    Other option:
    Prevent theme from changing mouse cursor
    This way you can keep your favorite cursor on all themes.


    Install themes and switch them manually.
    OR
    Switch automatically according to local time / clock on your PC using the LLL ThemeLooper.

    LLL ThemeLooper:
    Loops through the LLL themes, refresh every half hour checking clock.

    Uses Winaero Theme Switcher to switch between themes.
    Thanks to Sergey Tkachenko for the app.

    Keep the themes rolling!
