Close Restore minimize

Here's one for the man with the payware tool's Bongo of course
Could you do me a massive favor and add If possible white sign's to my theme for the close, restore, minimize tab's, I have added a pic below of what i would like and what i am seeing at the moment.

I would be most grateful to you or any one else who can help with this little problem or just point me in the right direction to do so my self.

Thank you Daniel


I've included msstyles folder i assuming that's what will be needed.

What theme am I supposed to add them to, the .msstyles in the zip folder you posted is the default Aero theme?

I left a note to the creator of that theme asking for permission to do that, I'll have to wait and see what his reply is first.

OK I got permission to do it, but am having a little difficulty there has been something changed in the .msstyles after putting the symbols back in their place they do not show up and I cannot find what was changed.
Look at the screenshots below, it shows you how the symbols are separate from the buttons that is in the default aero.msstyles

The creator did say that they are going to put them symbols back in the final version.

The only other way to do it would be to put the symbols right on the image.

Look at the two screenshots below of what it would look like you will notice in the second screenshot that the ? and the - symbols are on top of each other that is because they share the same button image.

It would take considerable amount time to do that to each individual button but if you would like me to I could try, if so which one of the 8 of that theme are you using?

Hi Jerry I wouldn't want to put you out to much so having the symbols overlapping would perfectly fine, as this will be fixed in the final release of the theme. I just want them back as a reference point of what I'm clicking, gets really annoying when you keep hitting the wrong button.
I'm using the recommended version of the theme as shown below it was the only one I installed the rest went in the trash
Thanks again for your time it is greatly appreciated
Dan

I will work on it, but you need to tell me which version you are using, look Personalization and tell me what it says so I'm not guessing.

Hi Jerry I am using the U-7imate (Recommended) version of the theme.
I downloaded the latest exe file from Deviant art and did the install manually only picking this version of the theme screen provided below.
