Edge8 for Windows 8 (works somewhat fine on windows 8.1, just install this to fix colored box behind some titlebar text, also get startisbackplus… to not have the jumplist issue. Until the theme is fully updated)

--Supports Startisback Start menu only!--

How to install Theme;

1. Windows 8 x64 users download <---- If already Patched, skip this step.
2. Install Edge8_Setup.exe
3. Enjoy!


Be sure to navigate to the Extras folder in the theme files to apply additional options.
Located at C:WindowsResourcesThemesEdge8_Light or _DarkExtras

-Dark Style is back!
-New Item Hovers
-New Buttons
-Fixed Save/Run Dialog Footers (Thanks Grim!)
-Adjusted Command Module/preview pane horizontal for control panel
*Easy Install

Hello xXiNightXx 
I'm an graphics designer, and i just got into rain meter skin making. So i learned some basic Rainmeter coding, and eventually i began making my own custom skins, and used rocketdock, and ViStart to really increase the level of customization. But i discovered that i like to make my desktop my own, but i can't really go further than that. So can you maybe make a quick tutorial, or send a link to one. Really any help at all would be awesome to get me startet!

Thx from fellow Deviant Minecrabgaming!:)

For begining with custom themes, this is a great place to start out. Buy Windows style builder and us this forum that has hundreds of threads on how to do what you want:

It also helps to get gimp or photoshop for editing. 

To play it safe, apply the themes/Test them on a virtual machine with a program such as Virtual box…   to avoid any nasty blue screens, or in the case of windows 8+ black screens.

If you need anymore information. Send me a note.

Any update on when and if you might fix the titlebar text bug and the jumplist bug?

I tried to instal it, but I get the colored box around the titlebar text... :P

I'm running Win8.1 Pro and I have AeroGlass beta 3 installed (I think I did it correctly).
So far, the only custom themes that did work for me are Aero by Design by LiveOrDieTM ( ) and Vanilla by link6155 ( )

i have to rework the theme to be compatible with 8.1. I have not had the chance to do that yet.
