    Windows 10 themes/styles/or whatever they are ...


    I have googled my fingers to the bone for two days (without success). I have an antique application written in VB6 that has survived since the Win95 days. I have implemented numerous custom controls to provide appearance and functionality not available from the manufacturer. Here's my question: Two VB6 controls sitting side by side on a form. One a richtextbox (with a vertical scrollbar), the other an MSFlexgrid (with a vertical scrollbar). The richtextbox scrollbar is flat, and blends nicely with the overall Windows 10 appearance. The MFlexGrid scrollbar looks like it was carved with a jackhammer from the side of Mount Rushmore. Why? Back in the day, they were both Microsoft 3D to the extreme. What do I need to do to the MSFlexGrid to bring it into the 21st Century like the richtextbox did automatically under Win10? Flat scrolbars on an MSFlexgrid? Can do?

    TIA Bob.

    Have you tried apps like fences or tune up utilities ?

    Fences is a Desktop app that manipulates icons and such same with Tuneup utilities but the other part of that program is snake oil but it is useful for Themes and Modifications

    I myself was actually looking for Windows 98 Themes with sounds but nothing to my luck

    Fences Download Fences : Software from Stardock

    Tune up Utilities Download TuneUp Utilities for Windows | Free Trial Download | AVG hope this helps if not i gave it my best shot :)

    Thanks for the suggestions. I downloaded, and tested, the utilities you suggested. Unless I completely missed the functionality, they didn't modify the appearance of a flexgrid. Again, thanks for the pointers, Bob.
