    @Edwin-I "seem" to be making some headway.

    Borders yes, but they are black, I still need to work out combining your settings with Dark2014. I got too frustrated today so I'm going to try again some other time. I get "destructive" (delete and start over) when I'm frustrated and seeing I've made a little headway, I don't want to mess up and start over.

    Ok did a little more to improve the look. I went into RegEdit at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Personalize and created the key(SystemUsesLightTheme DWordvalue 0) to change the Universal Apps(UA's) to the dark version for some consistency.

    I've had to use the Dark2014 theme pack(installed the windows 10 version of UXStyles) as the base.
    Then I changed the Background to your´s Edwin.
    After that I used your colors(using settings app) for taskbar and borders.
    I couldn't combine your theme with Dark 2014 but find a balance between the two to get a decent enough look.
    Here's what I have now:

    Thanks:)

    I have found out that Windows 10's Personalization let's me override some of the 3rd party themes settings, like the taskbar color and window-frame colors. That way I have the advantage of using the gray letters on a black background but the desktop color "theme" and wallpaper I want(one could always easily change the wallpaper but never the other colors).

    So I have to give Microsoft a big in this case.
