FAQs:

Q: What is Vanilla?
A: Vanilla is a theme for Windows 10 Technical Preview

Q: Help! The theme isn't applying and I am getting a grey basic theme!
A: Make sure to patch/override your uxtheme.dll file using UXStyle or UXtheme Ultra patcher.

A: Possibly, but I currently don't have Windows 7. Please do not ask as I already addressed this.

Wow I didn't know window animations could be changed until I've tried this theme. The fade animation is really nice. The start button icon is missing, though.

Some people say it works, but the start button doesn't show.

I wouldn't try, this theme was made on a very very early build of Windows 10.

Good job! I really wonder why those MS devs don't call you people to design their UIs...

To me, this is a much better rendition of Vanilla. Great work!

(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.)

I think this is better too! The 1px borders is a great addition to Windows, but I also wish they fix up the titlebar text bug which plague themers since Windows 8.1 :(

Are you talking about the bug where there's a solid colour behind the text?

Yup, it's a really big limiting factor when it comes to theme making.

Never Seen it in 8.1

Rock0 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Yeah, that's more than likely because MS never wanted anyone to theme Windows. They want it to look the way they want. I mean, just look at how they removed the Advanced Appearance options from Windows 7. No more font changing.

As far as I'm aware, the only thing that fixes it is AeroGlass, or Glass8, whatever it's called.

Looks nice. Still, would like to see superbar in light transparent color here.

I removed the transparent taskbar it really didn't fit in with the rest of the suite. I might change my mind as the suite right now is going through some changes.
