    I still can't decide on a "Look" for my new Win10 install. It'll probably be a bit till I start theming for real, but how's this? I used the same image for wallpaper and Mail app background picture, then aligned them to fit, and make it appear to be see thru.

    Using Brinks Aero Lite really adds color to the window chrome, I highly recommend it to all
    Download and follow the simple clear install instructions, then click it in personalization> themes and then go back to personalize app choose a picture, border color, lock screen, mouse pointes and sounds.... have fun and post.

    I like to keep music players in their original now playing mode and not use skins, so that's the first thing I try out to see what information shows at what size.

    I just tried theming, with the same theme packages I used on Windows 8.1 and the Preview up until 100147 and totally
    NUKED!!!

    Windows 10 to a black screen and cursor. I had to boot to the recovery partition to run Macrium for a restore.
    I think it was the OldNewExplorer.exe that did it. I'll try again in a few months when I finally have vacation for 3 weeks and search around for Win10 compatible stuff. Oddly installing the UXStyles from the preview had absolutely no negative effects that I could see like on Windows 8.

    Yep! 'OldNewExplorer' will do that!

    UXStyle gives trouble with multiple displays as well!

    I hope Macrium got you out of the 'ash heap'!

    I'll only try 3rd party stuff when I feel adventurous, too much of a pita!
