    I'm using a theme I've installed, Gray8 color pack by gsw953 from Deviant Art. It's actually for Windows 8.1 so there are a few nuisances/bugs closed ghosting and a couple of other things.
    On my Win8 machine it works perfectly, but I just want to test what and how much of ten can be themed, for instance the Universal apps are of course not affected by theming, Microsoft/or Devs will hopefully add a switch to choose dark-light theme. Better would be any color for a window background but that would just bloat the software.

    @ blackroseMD1 :

    How'd ya get the darker tone of grey on the right side? Is it part of the 'paper'?
    No, it's a "fence" from Stardock Fences. You can set the transparency level when you make a fence.

    The seniors I know use their pc for email and games. I am sure that is what he was thinking. When I have a problem with my PC, I fix it. Doing that makes me feel so good. When I had a problem with FF over riding my "never" setting and updating, that made me so angry. I worked until I found a way to keep V 28 without them updating.

    Same here, Emma. And if it won't obey me, then I chunk it inna dirt!

    Sometimes when I'm in Fry's or Best Buy or even Office Depot and see something I would like more information about, the sales person will talk down to me. As we talk, I will get deeper into the subject and it's fun to watch his chin drop lower and lower. And then when it's appropriate, I drop the zinger . . . I'm a tech; I build and repair computers. I'm looking at this for one of the senior citizens I support. What's priceless is that I haven't told one falsehood.

    I don't always do this; only when I'm talked down to.

    Had a girlfriend once that was car mechanic and excellent one at that. Should have seen fun in the shop with customers thinking she was a secretary or receptionist.

    Yeah, I taught my husband everything he knows about car mechanics. He got pretty good until the came out with all this computerized stuff. It even stumps me.

    He has control of the TV remote; that thing is a menace.
