    Windows 10 (duh)

    Warning


    OMG! I did not know how dangerous is to hack visuals in Windows 10!

    UxStyle/UXThemePatcher:
    - it can screw your GPU driver! Windows will disable the adapter so you end up with great looking theme and zero hw acceleration! that's a serious sign of memory corruption! who knows what else could fail and you end up loosing data?!
    - don't even dare uninstalling it, the only safe way is to revert to the previous system restore point (if you did that) else login will be impossible! Not even in safe mode!

    - really not worth the time it takes to do a refresh, using aerolite theme is the safest bet now
    W10 Logon BG Changer:
    - it's a piece of shit no matter if it does what it said! Why? Because the "Restore" is deceiving since it already replaced the WinSxS safe copies! Even sfc won't be able to do a proper restore! Again, use system restore point!
    - and when it comes to usage it will make your login process flash the screen extra times - and that's even more annoying than the default login screen!
    - using the registry tweak to disable logon image so it uses your accent / taskbar color is the safest bet now

    And now using high-contrast themes is screwed even more because of poor choice of system colors the new Settings and the taskbar Search results use! And the taskbar base color is still black and transparency threshold still 7f7f7f - good luck trying to create a high-contrast theme that resembles a normal one without huge visual bugs. I had big hopes for 10 since it incorporated HC in settings, only to find out it's even more worthless than 8 and 7...

    W10 Logon BG Changer is poor because it messes with 'authui.dll' and MS won't have any part of that!

I mean I know the basics, right click>change icon>browse to where they're stored(after changing, never move the file), I know this, but for example changing Library icons on This PC doesn't seem to work(I can change the icons on the 2nd internal drive where they physically are but not This PC at the top). Like I said a tut would be good.

    Here's a start; create custom libraries with custom icons:

    Halloween on Tillson St., Romeo, MI


    These are pictures from Tillson Street in Romeo, Michigan, where they go all out for Halloween.

    I've been playing with themes again and I have a couple more I'd like to share with everyone.
    To install, extract each theme Zip file then Copy/Paste the Theme file and its
    Folder to: C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
    A little Windows 98 nostalgia.

    Enjoy!

    Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16281

    I have a question . . . In prior Windows we could "shuffle" the pictures in themes, but so far, I haven't found a way to do that. And I really would. I have a theme that has several pictures of a very pretty flower bush, but so far, they're all clumped together and I want them to be separated a bit.

    My only solution so far is to name them Pic 1, Pic 2, etc. to separate them a bit.
