    I'm undecided if I want to offer Dragon as an Aero Hybrid theme. It seems to be missing something, and the extreme dark to white contrasts(where colors can't be changed in Aero) are just toooooo.... I don't know? Just too???!

    Here is the major fail; hard coded black text:

    Is it your Subzero Dragon HC theme using Aero instead of AeroLite?

    It's indeed too...
    But worth the effort!

    It seems the base (Aero) theme was meant to be white, proven by those UI parts that are not affected by the theme dark color specs.

    It might still work with some grayish theme, not too dark, for now. That way the blending with the white parts is easier on the eyes.

    I've already posted a couple of nicer gray themes, I try for different colors to go with different wallpapers. But some AeroHybrids don't transfer to HC well, and the reverse, HC to AeroHybrid, because of hard coded colors and default link colors, that cannot be changed with out patching(and that ship has lifted anchor a few builds ago).

    Personally I don't mind the white left showing, but for people with eyesight problems, or live on their computer, it would be nice to be able to offer something.

    The problem with patching, when it worked, is , in Win7 it broke MMC, in Win8.1 it broke right click in all apps and start screen. And... in Wn10 it broke View Reliability History in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Security and Maintenance, plus right click in start menu.

    My latest theme doesn't do much but I'll go for the orangy highlights:

    Sunset3 Theme:

    Using good ol' Aero.
    Text highlight is changed.
    For VirtualBox users: colors are different that in default themes.
    Explorer window title: using its own color...
    And some gray instead of white, but not too much.

    For the inactive title bar I'm using;
    Code:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM]
    "AccentColorInactive"=dword:00474747
    Inactive Title Bar Color - Change in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Title text is in bold:

    EDIT:
    If the Yellow title is annoying, you can find the updated theme version on the next page.
    (White for Explorer - Black for Resource Monitor sections)

    That's all.

    Aero theme test:
    Some control panel colors are well-applied, others not.

    Menu colors are changed but not in all programs.
    Explorer left-pane is also affected by some menu color.
