Info_______________________________
Here's the next version of Simplex! This version features a new frame, search & address bar, taskbar, and various of other changes.

Tips______________________________
1. You should put the winaeroglass and TBarIconBlanker app inside your startup folder so that you won't have to start them up each time you log into windows
2. The glass effect will be disable if you change the color scheme or have auto-colorization on.
3. This theme is Ribbon compatible! If you prefer using the ribbon, no worries :)

Please fav if you like this work!

Is there any way to change the minimize, maximize and close button in windows to the same style as in your Vanilla or Licorice theme? That's the one thing that keeps me from using this theme! :(

The theme doesn't work on Windows 8.1 as far as I know, so you wouldn't be able to use this theme anyways. An update will be coming, the caption buttons will be different.

I plan to upgrade this to Windows 10 rather than 8.1. The way this theme achieves transparency isn't possible in 8.1 anymore, but there are some promising opportunity with Windows 10.

Couple of issues with Windows 8.1 64 bit: first, the task manager window borders are all buggy with the winaeroglass. Also, when you click and drag up on any icon on the taskbar, the menu it opens is very buggy.

That's because this theme hasn't been updated for Windows 8.1 yet.

Hi, this looks really nice. I have a problem, tho, I installed it but the top part of the windows (with the clos, minimize, restore button) doesn't change just shows the same big, red button from windows 8 defaul, no those cute round buttons of your theme.

Any advice? Thanks

restart the service if you still have it installed. If that fails, use UXTheme ultra patch.

If you changed the window button style, this would be perfect.

I really like the look of this theme but I think it would look better if it had the corners square like regular Windows 8.
I could even live with the different caption buttons (though I do prefer the default style) if it were for this one change.

Don't get me wrong though, I think this is a beautiful theme and I really enjoy your work. Keep it up. =]

The idea of the theme is to be simple (hence the name simplex). Square corners are sharp and are not necessarily "simple". The caption buttons again are meant to be minimalistic, assuming that the users memorized what each button is already.

I understand what you were trying to achieve and while I beg to differ about the square vs round corners point, my issue with the caption buttons is that there is no definable hit box which the user can see.
Obviously anyone who knows anything about Windows, knows that you wouldn't have to hit the button precisely, but it is easier to determine with larger buttons or having borders on it. Now I know that having borders for the caption buttons in this instance would be detrimental to your theme but perhaps slightly larger buttons (maybe only a pixel or 2 bigger) could be more beneficial.
I know I could always just edit your theme myself to suit my needs but I thought I would just give you some constructive criticism. I am by no means an expert in theming and this is just from my personal point of view. I hope you don't take any of this negatively as this was all only for discussions sake. :)

The caption buttons are technical the same size as before, but they just don't look like it.
