    Neither would mine, Simrick, but some folks actually need that and I'm glad Edwin can fix it for 'em.

    Thanks gals!
    It's definitely 'easier' on the eyes, but there's a down side to both.
    Staring at bright monitors for hours on end, (and I have three large monitors), can cause some nasty eye fatigue, but also, studies show that light text on dark background causes eye strain because the dark 'swallows up' the light;
    so..., I switch back and forth!
    Proper room lighting is essential as well.

    Nice sig Wynona!

    Thanks @Edwin!!!
    I had to give up using UXStyles on Win10 . Last night at 23:30, I got home from work and turned on my desktop and checked for updates. After installing Cumulative Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3081424) I changed to a Windows theme(actually should of been enough) and (here it is...) uninstalled UXstyles... rebooted, and.... black screen.... rebooted again.... white screen.... rebooted a 3rd time.... recovery options, I chose Macrium and reimaged to before UX theming.

    As a side note UXStyles was a bit unstable, it liked to turn my AMD card drivers off, where I had to go to Device Manager and Disable>Enable to turn them back on. I have checked for an update for UX but as of yet there isn't any. Also the slide outs(start menu, aaction center & taskbar jumplist) were a bit jerky and slow. I'll wait before I go 3rd party theming for a while. I'm going to do a clean install in the next couple of months, when I get my fiber optic connection, any how, so it doesn't make much sense building a nest on this image anyhow.

    Usually I am not a fan of dark themes but this is cool, this one I could occasionally use.

    Windows 10 (duh)

    Gold is rather unfortunate foreground color choice for an inverted theme - and I'm not talking about taste, but about readability, fatigue-over-time and mood-inducing.

    I know about eye fatigue . . . I wish Microsoft would see fit to let our fonts be real black instead of this light gray on white. I need the contrast, but not yours. I've tried black with white font and it's not for me.

    So far, I haven't been successful.

    I guess I'll just wait for WindowBlinds to come up with a working version for 10

    Black backgounds are just so bad if not worse than white

    Thought I would share a couple of themes with everyone......
    Although I created these in Windows 7, they work just fine in Windows 10.
