Edit: Would you be able to give me the link to the dark colorful one instead?
take a look in the comments section before shouting... you'll see that I give the themes for free to anyone asking nicely... which only take 2 seconds to do ask, right?
Just tell me what do you expect when you click on a download button? Link? Bill? Tell me please. This is scamy
And trust me I don't just recolor stuff when it comes to win10 themes... I've sent you the Simplify 10 Light pack and you can open each theme in WSB to see how everything is made.
It's not my fault there's only a download option on devaintArt... btw I've removed it if that makes you happy!
And again, it's not a scam... I'm not deceiving anyone... and no one complained about this except you and I'm not sure what your problem is. I don't send people to malware websites or something...
You have nice work, you have a nice description just missing that part and if someone like me would complain you can point out that I wasn't reading description. No hard feelings but you didn't really replied on my question about what do you expect from download button.
So this was my only option to do it... I did not do it in a scammy way because I don't want to trick anyone on buying anything and I don't promise something else.
Believe me I'm not getting rich from this or anything. I have a regular job you know. But it's enough to give me determination to make some more themes. This shows me that people really appreciate my work.
At first I gave all the themes for free and I have over 200 thousands downloads to my older Windows 7 and 8 themes but most of users didn't even left a "thank you" comment which was really disappointing to me.
So this was a way of getting some appreciation and keep me going.
May I ask you for Dark circle version? And I'll be waiting for Dark Pack version to be released. I'll happily support it. Thank You!!
I've sent you the dld links to the dark ones as well... give them a try and let me know if you like them.
Could I also get the link
And Happy New Year
I've sent you a link with the theme. Enjoy!
I've run across a little issue with custom themes in general. Do you know how to keep the accent color applied by the theme without having Windows' default blue highlights under active windows on the task bar? Accent color doesn't seem to affect Simplify 10 much so it only modifies the highlight taskbar color and the ring around the "modern" Settings window, but I'm afraid there's more significant stuff I just haven't come across yet. The popular "Black Edition" theme I tried before this, however, had its title bar color changed by accent color, so the only way to apply the accent color other than Windows default blue was to also replace the theme's intended title bar color (which is supposed to be a very dark grey).
About your problem... You can chose whatever accent color you want with my themes but it will only change the taskbar and the start menu. For example here's the color I use with my Simplify Dark Circles theme: sta.sh/0ccjv91tnrz
If you want the same color applied to the title bar as well then I recommend using the default windows theme. Custom themes in general doesn't allow this feature because it would interfere with the design of the theme.
Not sure what the hell where the devs smoking when they decide to move the taskbar's UI resources to dll files. Fucking idiots!
Is there a chance you'll make a version of this without the rounded top? My favourite thing about Win10 (and Win8 I suppose) is the non rounded windows. I always thought Windows 7 looked pretty garish and I love pointed corners. I'd love a version of this that didn't put the rounded part at the top of windows.
no problem, I'll send you a note with the squared version. enjoy!
