Simplify 8 for Windows 8.1 by dpcdpc11 Simplify 8 for Windows 8.1 by dpcdpc11


Simplify 10 Light Themes Pack for Windows 10 is finally here!!!



description

an elegant and minimalistic Pack of Visual Styles for Windows 8.1 that doesn't get in the way of your productivity.
+BONUS: Matching Firefox Style for the dark themes available here.

EXTRA STUFF!!! make sure you checkout the 2 matching PotPlayer skinsSimplify Light for PotPlayer and Simplify Dark for PotPlayer.

IMPORTAT!!!! The themes don't change the icons! I never said they do! If you want to change the system icons you can use iPacks. In the preview I've used this iPack: numix iPack. If you want to change the taskbar icons then please google something like "how to change the taskbar icons in windows".

how to

create a Restore Point using System Restore (safety first!)
patch Windows so you can use 3rd party themes using this tool: uxstyle.com
install the theme by copying the content of the Themes/Light Themes or Themes/Dark Themes folder in "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\"
apply the theme from the Personalize panel
apply the registry settings by applying the corresponding .reg file in the Window Metrics folder
remove the hover glow of the taskbar buttons: System>Advanced Settings>Performance Settings>uncheck Animations in the taskbar
restart Windows and...
enjoy using your new themes!
• OPTIONAL for Dark Point and Light Lines themes: use OldNewExplorer and check Use command bar instead of Ribbon option and all the sub-options except for the Hide caption text in File Explorer windows
OPTIONAL! narrow vertical taskbar: use 7+ Taskbar Tweaker. Right click on the tray icon>advanced settings and set the no_width_limit = 1
OPTIONAL! change the system icons: install the numix iPack

what you get

10 awesome Windows themes + extra variations: folders Themes...
matching windows cursor schemes: folder Resources\Cursors
two beautiful wallpapers: folder Resources\Wallpapers
matching Firefox Style for Simplify 8.1 Dark: available here
unlimited support!

Hey, love the theme, but I'm having a slight issue with it. There is this slight gap on he left and right side of address bar. Doesn't seem like you are having it like that so I wonder do you know how to fix it? Here is the screenshot: i.imgur.com/Qa6EhZ3.png

Make sure you check the right settings in OldNewExplorer for each theme. That should fix it.

You need to check the Enable glass on navigation bar, just like instructed.
Then close explorer and open it again.
You have to do this for all the Light themes.

Resolution has nothing to do with it.
Try using an older version of OldNewExplorer. I can't test it since I no longer use windows 8.

I fixed it by using Ribbon Disabler instead of OldNewExplorer.

Perfect! When this theme was created OldNewExplorer was working fine.
