    Thanks.
    I hope we will remain friends after this

    - The light background, the bird there has nothing to do with Finland making the background image something I would not use
    -Title of a non active window is too dark and difficult to see (#1 in screenshot)
    - I have some colors I never use nor like in any desktop themes, not alone and certainly not in any combination. The "no-go" colors for me are red, yellow and gold, green, any combination of them and some others as in #2 in the screenshotI like the background image with just the flag & coat of arms. That one I will use

    I hope I didn't go straight to your ignore list...
    It was the thought that counted( I hope) Funny I like those colors. Specially blue. As for title bar text I never really worry about it, because I know where I am(one of the things I do like about patched themes is they get rid of the text totally by making it the exact same color as the bar). I got both images at Bing(the one you like I found here:http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=...=0-15&sp=-1&sk=

    Cliff, I am in total awe that you did this for me, that's fantastic. I just thought I'd tell you what I prefer.

    I want my Explorer windows to be white, as by default. Nothing fancy. I just like them that way. When applying a theme I don't let Windows to pick the color, instead I select one of the grey tones:

    I like this simple combination like for instance here in the Start Menu:

    Gray, specially a certain tone(I forget the specs, but I believe 6500k color temperature and neutral gray (RGB 192, 192, 192)) is perfect for viewing pictures and video as it reduces color bleeding which would be perfect for your video editing.

    That's cool @Edwin Now, not only Firefox and Thunderbird, can have this warm brownish flat grey look(that I like). I love my FT DeepDark and TT DeepDark, now there is a WT DeepDark, even IE is DeepDark now:
