    Title bar glow


    Is it possible to remove the white glow in the title bar surrounding the text through hex editing? I'm on the aero theme, but transparency is turned OFF already.

    Welcome to the Seven Forums
    I am not sure if you can hex edit it, but that is part of the steam 971.png image which has a lot of transparency in it I have overlaid the steam image over a gray background to show you where it's at.

    If you are using the default aero theme I can change that for you. I use Windows Style Builder Ave's Windows7 Style Builder to edit themes which separates that steam image making it easier to edit.
    If you are using a custom theme you will need to ask the
    theme maker. It's not cool to change someone else work.
    &
    You will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.

    yes I'm using the default aero theme with transparency off, background = solid black, color intensity to maximum, hue, saturation, and brightness set to minimum, and white titlebar text.

    Here you go download the zip file and extract it to your desktop and put both 1 theme folder and 1.theme file in C/Windows/Resources/Themes
    it will show up in Personalize as No_Glow you will have to reset the background and the hue and saturation that you have done.
    Let me know if it works for you.

    Excellent work Bongo, whoever thought that glow effect was cool?

    It's something that's been annoying me for a long time and now it's fixed.

    TYVM.

    Hey Bongo, sorry to revive this dead thread, but can you also implement Remove user picture from start menu

    ?
    I really dislike the display picture too.

    Thanks!
