    Anyone using Aero Glass for 10?


    Aero Glass for Windows 8.x+

    Looks like it's just a test build but curious if anyone here is using it - Is it stable or rather buggy? Also, how does it look?

    That says for 8.x, not 10. Not sure if it will work. I know Glass does work on 10 though. Deviantart has some themes. Here's Windows 7 for 10:

    It's just a link to the site, there's a windows 10 section. I'm not interested in getting the windows 7 look particularly, I love the way 10 looks, just annoyed that the title bars aren't transparent like the rest. Cmon Microsoft.

    Windows 7 Ultimate 64

    I've been keeping my eye on it, but as I'm not using Windows 10 at this moment (waiting for SR1 and maybe SR2), I haven't used it yet. It says the Win10 version is currently an experimental build, and going by the warning to not use it for production systems, I'm guessing it has instabilities in it - especially since the last release is for the preview build of Windows 10.

    Another UI modification that I'm keeping eyes on is this: Vista Themes for Windows 10 by sagorpirbd on DeviantArt

    It also has transparent Aero title bars.

    There is now a better option for bringing back Aero Glass. One which does not have an annoying watermark, is free and has less bugs than the bigmuscle nagware one:

    Aeroglass 1.4 has been out for a couple of weeks, Win 10 compatible, and if you donate 3 or 4 euros or so you get 2 or 3 reusable keys, which a
    a. remove the watermark on the desktop
    b. automatically update the 'symbols' - i.e. locations of where things need to be changed (else you may need to do that manually).

    I've not noted any bugs... used with Aerolite theme and now Windows 10 default (coloured title bars and borders).

    Or you can get a completely free, working way to do the same thing in the link which I gave.

    Use this instead - no watermark, no nagware and free:

    I'm running the AeroGlass v1.4.1 with no issues. I donated 5 euros and got the 3 keys, plus it has the testing beta of modern app glass titlebars. You can tweak it a little further with the AeroGlass GUI tool at the bottom of that download page that I linked to. Also, I'm using Start10 for adjusting the task bar shade and transparency only...leaving all other settings alone.

    I found it useful to tweak the title bar caption text to white using the tweak tool on the Aeroglass site. That makes it clear on active and inactive windows. However Wordpad is different, and only displays black text.. Notepad's is white...
