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!

I really like what this theme does for the taskbar. However, I don't like what it does to my window buttons. Could you advise me, author, on how to disable that latter part of the theme? I'd really appreciate it.

Hey my friend.. there's no such thing as disabling parts of a theme.
Here you have 10 different style with different buttons, if you don't like any of them just try another theme. You can find a lot of Win8.1 themes here on deviantArt.

Ah. Thank you for telling me.

In the end I managed to get what I wanted using the taskbar customisation options provided by the program Classic Shell, which I was using anyway.
