hey bongo, i'm still using this skin and it's great. but i found one more issue. for windows that don't use aero [like in this screenshot from icofx portable], the inactive windows' close button is blue. can you desaturate the blue close button to gray?

hey bongo, i'm still using this skin and it's great. but i found one more issue...

- when not in aero mode, the maximize/restore button remains blue [when disabled--such as for non-resizable windows like installers]. can you fix this by desaturating it?

What is "when not in aero mode" ?

Can you post a screenshot.

currently, the problem is only the maximize/restore button is blue. the minimize button is already desaturated so it's fine. this is only visible in certain windows that have their size locked--not normal windows. so it's on the locked state of the maximize/restore button.

so basically, there is still a blue version of the maximize/restore button. if you can find it and desaturate it, then it should fix the problem.

You will have to take a screenshot of that certain window so I can try to reproduce it.
