Windows 7: Minimize Maximize Close Panel Configuration in Skype

Minimize Maximize Close Panel Configuration in Skype

Hello once again,

Not long time ago I faced one problem with icons and the problem was solved fast so thank you for the fast and effective support once again.

Now I have installed theme Placebo Angst and it looks really sweet, but I faced one problem in it with my skype window, when skype login window appears the panel looks fine, but when Skype is loaded up it gets back to normal mode, so my question is there any tutorial how to modify it or maybe a refresh function somewhere to apply the panel as it is in all other windows?


Here is the image, top panel is skype and the bottom one is browser.

Thanks for any help in advance.
Martis.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

I downloaded and installed Skype made up a fake account and no matter what theme I used Skype sets it's own buttons, then I went through the program file with the resource hacker and could not find where those buttons images are, some programs have items like that coded in deep.

Yes, I realized that, I think it is also that theme developers thinks mostly about the normal panel _ [ ] X and they forget others so I think that should be also the case since skype panel has more than those 3 it also has separation button so I assume this is also a threat for transforming it. I noticed that also in other programs where there is only _ X functions also did not changed. But all those who are normal ones _ [ ] X are all changed.

Well if still anyone finds any ideas how to do that don't be shy to post it here.

And thanks Bongo for your reply.

I know the aero.msstyles really well from making themes myself and there is no way of changing them buttons on Skype through the aero.msstyles. It has to be in the program itself.
