1. Created a new theme/msstyle the correct way, by copying the No_Glow_2 theme previously provided as a starting point. Named it EasyRead2.

2. Used Windows Style Builder to change the inactive window border opacity to the same as the active border's, changed the selected item color to grey in most instances. Overwrote EasyRead2.msstyles and applied it. (I did have some error messages about there being an error in the msstyle, but no idea why, and it did save upon a second attempt).

3. In the Personalize menu I changed the border color to black, and unticked enable transparency; thus creating an 'unsaved theme' because I had edited things. I 'saved this theme for sharing', then unzipped the .themepack to retrieve the .theme file.

Hopefully with any luck this new file will work for others, and if it does it doesn't revert it's changes at a later date for some reason:

That's just the .theme, what about the Folder?

Ah, my mistake in the above explanation. Everything was named "EasyRead" in my creation steps. Until I got to the saving of the unsaved theme, and saving that for sharing. I named that "EasyRead2" (funnily enough, to avoid confusion, that didn't work.)

You can change that text color at Fonts, Colors & System Metrics > Fonts & System Metrics > CAPTIONTEXT:COLOR but that changes the text on both active and inactive Windows there's no way make them separate.

For programs like Firefox you can go to Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Frames > Normal > Top > MaxActive > TEXTCOLOR:COLOR
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Frames > Normal > Top > MaxInactive > TEXTCOLOR:COLOR but this is for when the Window is maximized.
