Added SMACC here as not to overcrowd the Customization Theme thread with development stuff...
Good idea Craig.
Now to any members that want to change colors in windows, download this tool!
It is a UI to change the colors in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors and has also an option to use external colors(just choose a color with your mouse from your wallpaper or a photo,, add it to custom colors on the color pallette, shut external colors off, click your custom color and you can then apply it/them to the registry)
Just to inform you @Superfly, the updater work this evening. I asked, I clicked yes, it took me to the auto download
Cool Cliff, Was kinda worried as the updater didn't work on my work machine when I tested it.... debugged it and it was a proxy setting violation... go figure..

Hey Craig, I have an addition for SMACC, you can add if you wish.
I have been using one of the icons that Horace(@Hopachi) posted in the other thread a while ago, as a custom tile pack(almost since the beginning):
Here is the complete folder I created(including your most current version of SMACC),
With instructions on how to apply it and change the tile background color.
SMACC. with Tile Pack.zip
One only needs to place the folder where it won't get moved, and pin the .exe to Start.
Thanx Cliff... using that image now.
The slider for colorization color seems to be screwing up the choice for AccentColor & AccentColorInactive. I gives the opposite of what's been selected. I mean I choose blue, it shows as blue on the color bar(?) but when applied it is red. And that no matter what setting for the slider I choose
Aw shucks... tried to get clever with transparency on Accent, which it does not accept ... will fix and upload later...
BTW - I notice ColorizationColor gets set the same colour as Accent when changing the latter via Personalization with the addition of a set 196 alpha value. Changing either from SMACC only affects titlebars, and not taskbar/startmenu.
SMACC updater working great!
Just for your information Craig
I opened SMACC this morning to a new update popup:
I didn't know about the update.
When you just update the first post, it doesn't show up as a new post notification. Could you also write a new version post(like I do in my software update threads) so it shows up in notification?
somehow my windows themes are broken. Doesnt matter which theme I apply it will only change color and the mouse.
Can I reset this in any way?
For some reason MS in their inane wisdom decided to remove the function of being able to set custom title bar text colors and such like windows 7 and below had, Is there someway to get this back? even if its a 3rd party app it is ok. I mean when I...

I am running Win 10 Tech Evaluation and Win 7 in dual boot. That's fine.
But when it comes to personalizing win 10, the background colour of the hovering mouse is black,
so when it's hovered over black text, the text is obliterated.
How can I...
