    This theme works well in almost all areas, immersive and native, 'buttons', links, hyperlinks, etc, so I thought I would share it here as well.
    I applied a few tweaks and supplied a few 'extras'.

    The items included are:
    - The Themepack itself,

    - 'Avqest' Fonts (optional),

    Attachment 30238

    - Gold animated cursor (optional),

    Attachment 30239

    - Desktop Background,

    - 215 Icons ico and 215 Icons png, (optional), (courtesy of 'icebabee') http://icebabee.deviantart.com/art/B...Gold-259576159

    The files can be downloaded here:

    The text is a little dim but you could brighten it a little within the Color Palette:

    Notes:
    Between Firefox, Edge and IE, surprisingly Edge holds all the elements the best!
    Getting custom icons to work in some areas is tricky, want some help, just ask.

    Enjoy! Doesn't cost a cent!

    The shortcut works if you are in HC mode

    Perhaps you should upgrade to a newer version. The latest is 14393.

    I'm on that one but wasn't in HC mode when i tried it. It said something about that 1drive type link no longer being valid. I dunno, I'll try it again, lol.


    ---EDIT---

    Was referring to the 1drive link for the theme, not the color and appearance link. I'm not using any mods anymore since I'm not sure which mod was breaking the metro apps in windows 10 RS1.

    Still doesn't work. I tried it in HC mode as well and got the same message.

    [P.S. Gyazzo normally shows an image on the page above the url when pasted but for some reason it didn't do so this time.... No idea why.]

    Makes me think something is corrupt in your winders. I would reinstall using the ISO this way you have the option to keep all programs and files.

    The link you provided works, but the link to the actual theme is the one that doesn't. As for Gyazo, it does that on occasion. It's got it's little kinks but it's not a big issue.

    Also, mine is upgraded from Windows 10 TH2 OEM, so sadly I never had an ISO disc. For me the option would be a factory reset if it came down to that. Either way, I'm obviously addicted to theming since I'm back to modded themes, but I'll still make and use themes from and for TenForums as well, lol.

    Unfortunately this means I can't use many of the YouTube apps [or any others that require signing into an account] from the Windows store since the patching method [of which is the best method currently since UxStyle doesn't allow you to properly switch themes without uninstalling it and reinstalling it] tends to break those apps.

    How do I download this one? The link doesn't work.

    -EDIT-

    nvm, just noticed this is the same issue I had before that I never found a solution for. Apparently the 1drive link to the theme itself is no longer valid.
