Yes, that works very well. Which version of ave's style builder are you using? I'm curious.

I'm curious, what would happen if I delete the aero folder and the aero theme? Is the theme you created dependent on any of the default themes?

I do not think the theme I created is dependent on the default Aero theme, but I would not delete any of the aero folders or theme if for some reason the theme I created would become corrupt you would have nothing to fall back on.

Am i doing something wrong or is the text also removed from the title? Ideally I'd like white text on my black/dark title bars (the glow looked horrid, but at least i knew what window was which - esp. important on ones not in the task bar...)

Edit: Never mind the idiot I was messing with some other tools and one of them turned off the text.

Hey!
I would appreciate it, if someone could remove the text glow from this style for me. It has bothered me for a while, but I can't figure out how to get rid of it.

Welcome to the Seven Forums
You will need to ask the theme maker to change it, it's not cool to change someone's work.

Thank you for your reply.
I emailed the theme maker a couple months ago, asking him for permission to change it or have someone change it, but he didn't respond.
I guess he doesn't care, and I will only use it for myself too.

Try this, go to Post #2 of this thread it shows you where that text glow is at use this tutorial Taskbar Button: Change Color of Orange Flashing Button will show you how to open up the .msstyles then export the Steam image #971 and edit out that portion with a image editor like gimp in that tutorial then save it and imported back in the .msstyles then save that and try it out on.
Make a copy of the original and save it so you don't corrupt it.
