    Windows 10 Pro x64

    Ok, here it is. This is what my desktop looks like with StartisBack++. This is the link to the program by the way StartIsBack: real start menu for Windows 8 and Windows 10 it is a mere US$3 for one PC license. I am impressed. There is even some configurable transparency effects from Win7 available, as you can see my taskbar is way more transparent than the win10 default.

    May I see what a "window" appears like (something like Computer or Control Panel would do.)

    Windows 10 Home x64

    Hey that's nice! I just may look into that myself.

    As far as what Operating System you use and what forum's you belong to, I'm running 10 Home now exclusively but still post at SevenForums where I've been a member for many years. I also post at the ROG Help forums though I retired my G74Sx when I bought this machine. I too am a former Vista user and have always thought it was treated too .... harshly by most. A few tweeks , a little bit of time and it was a fine Operating System.

    Here you go
    This is the default "white" colour for the title bar but with the latest build (10586.3) you can change the colour. If you want me to switch the colour and show an example let me know.

    I was hoping it might change the style of caption buttons. Thanks for showing that though.

    Oh the Min/Max/Close buttons. I loathe the Windows 10 ones (in fact I was never crazy about the Vista/7/8 ones either. I like small XP-size buttons, so I've always edited my own visual styles to get it the way I like it.

    These are my Vista Basic ones I've edited (I also changed my progress bars to blue)

    Ah. I'm with you on that one. Windows 10 Min/max/close buttons are absolutely horrid. I'd go back to the 8.1 or 7 ones if possible. I wish Startisback provided that functionality but it probably has to be done with something more intensive like what you've done with editing the styles. I am sure you could nab your vista basic styles into Win10 somehow, or at the very least 7.

    To be honest the new "File Explorer" in 8/8.1/10 was a steep learning curve for me but once I was used to it it seems better.
    Cheers
