    Hmm.. so far I did't unblock any of the themes downloaded and they installed without issues.
    When does the unblock part apply? I guess some particular security settings would require it.
    It has to do with UAC for some things, I just do it out of habit, and recommend others too. I have had software improperly run/install because I forgot to unblock.

    It usually asks if you don't unblock an executable.

    TeamTheme1


    Ok time to post a new theme. Originally when it started, I was using a Robot Dragonfly as a background, and got the theme colors off of the wallpaper.

    Credits:
    • @kado897 -- Wallpapers
    • @Hopachi -- Cursor
    • @Superfly -- SMACC, without this color chooser too, I would never have gotten these colors right, and with the help of the preview window, made the creation faster.
    • Myself -- for the system colors settings and putting everything together.


    Here are the screenshots of the final iteration:

    Instructions to apply your new Windows Aero Hybrid Theme


    1.) Downloadall parts(Themepack, Inactive Title Bar accent color regiastry file, any additional wallpapers, and go to any provided links for extras, such as cursors).


    2.) Once files are downloaded, right click each file and unblock them(a small checkbox on the bottom right corner of the General tab)


    3.) Zipped files need to be extracted by right clicking and choosing Extract(to any place you wish, I have created a Themes Library folder for this myself, but to Documents, or Desktop is ok too).
    You can now delete the Zip files and/or themepack if you wish, once they are applied. Although... I recommend, if you like the theme, save the zipped files somewhere other than the system(C:) drive(backup).


    4.) Then you just click the Themepack & any additional registry files to apply them. Also place any additional wallpapers in your Pictures library, and add them to the theme or apply as Lock Screen.


    5.) Enjoy!


    Note: To uninstall the theme: just go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization change to another theme, then right click the one you don't wish to have any more, and delete it.

    Thanks Horace, it's a lot more fun doing it together, than alone.
    And now I have a link to the BB Code list, and have learned how to use it, Notes and Information will catch the peoples eyes, and it looks cleaner too.

    Cliff, I'm not sure that the .theme file accepts AccentColorInactive - or I'm not aware where to place it. (It's included under visualstyles merely as a placeholder in the meantime)
    It thus does not form part of the themepack and still has to be applied via .reg. Unless we can find a workaround.
    Usually we find ColorizationColor in the registry where the AccentColorInactive is located as well.
    The first is included in the theme; logically the second can be added at the same location: looks good.

    However, it doesn't work like this, just tested.
    Any other theme (ini) sections we could test?

    Unless [VisualStyles] in the theme isn't the right location for this and/or [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM] isn't the same thing, although it says current user... so far the registry files are needed separately for this.

    Nice!
    I use some of those from time to time; and had some time getting used to the mentions tag, but all good now.
