I wouldn't try, this theme was made on a very very early build of Windows 10.
(Side note: I think that this [almost] borderless thing that MS has done with Windows 10 is fantastic, in that it opens up new possibilities for themers. For example, you've cut the right side of the close button. That alone makes for a great change, nevermind a fix.)
As far as I'm aware, the only thing that fixes it is AeroGlass, or Glass8, whatever it's called.
