This theme looks awesome. You wouldn't mind if I could have the link to it?

Edit: Would you be able to give me the link to the dark colorful one instead?

nice scam. This download pack contains only one file with link to his own page where he will try to charge money for it. I don't see anything about this in your description... Go ahead and download if you like to waste your time...

it's not a scam you ignorant person! making Windows themes takes time and effort... changing a dollar for something that took me weeks to make doesn't make sense of being a scam!
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?

I used to make windows themes myself back then when window 7 was the latest (I even paid for an app to help me make this better). And it is hard to make but takes less time simply recoloring what you did here. It's not the point tho, the point is that your description says NOTHING about payment and why the hell download button at all if that contains nothing but a link? That's a scammer type of thing to do. Make a patreon or something in your profile but please stop sending deviantart users to other website. Top themes here are actual downloads accept yours.
Just tell me what do you expect when you click on a download button? Link? Bill? Tell me please. This is scamy ;)

Check my gallery my friend and you'll see that I used to make Win7 themes as well using Windows Style Builder which is a paid software.
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...

I'm sorry, I can't see in your description that download contains only a link. That's the problem and scammy thing to do. And in that link the only way to get your download is through the donation button which is not donation anymore but a product you have to pay for. 

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.

I did answer your question... The download button was the only way to show the description in a nice way... I can't change the name of the button since there's no way to do that on deviantArt... I would change it to buy it here or something but I can't.
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.

Hey Ralph... welcome to Windows 10! How's it working for you so far?

ralphonzolio Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2017
Thank you! Love the theme and just bought it. So far so good with 10, though I'm glad I waited for compatibility issues to get worked out. Never pays to switch to a new OS right when it comes out...

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).

dpcdpc11 Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2017  Professional Interface Designer
Glad to hear that and thank you for your support!

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.

:iconralphonzolio:
ralphonzolio Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2017
Oh that isn't what I want at all, in fact, it's one feature I really dislike about some of the custom themes I've tried on Windows 10 and I'm glad your theme retains the theme's titlebar color. Mr Grim's Black Edition theme applies its own title bar color when you apply the theme, but when you change the accent color to avoid the ugly default blue accents on the taskbar, it then changes the title bar color to the accent color instead of keeping the theme's intended color. I'm using a grey accent with your theme and it looks great (though honestly I wish someone would figure out a way to get rid of the underlining on the taskbar all together, and from what I've read, I'm not the only person who thinks the underlining looks dumb).

Thanks again!

Oh yeah.. This is one of the things I hate the most about windows 10: not being able to customize the taskbar.
Not sure what the hell where the devs smoking when they decide to move the taskbar's UI resources to dll files. Fucking idiots!

I love your themes and just bought both this and the Light themes pack.

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.
