Not, you are not alone. On the forums I frequent many people have complained about the white blur behind the active title bar text as well as the white task bar button colors. I want to be able to adjust my task bar button color from white to anything better as well as remove that blur from behind the text on the title bar.

Forgive me for carrying on this thread but I feel it so unresolved personally & it bugs me greatly for what is overwise a very good theme.


Why am I unable to get this style text graphics for active window font. If I choose white for the active window it still keeps that cursed ugly outer overlay blur. Like so.. Terrible.

Is it that this can only be changed by a total conversion theme requiring me to mess around with my system files and potentially damaging my os, which Im unwilling todo, and also nobody has yet to produce a theme Im happy with.

Kind of a vent sorry chaps. Overall this is a very small thing.

Kind regards

Right now this is the closest thing to a alternative solution, however Im not a fan of the theme in general, good though not quite what I like. It just masks the text problem. The active window is fairly good.

That theme is by our member sergiogarcia9...contact him and I albeit he will give you just the overlay replacement so you can modify the default AERO theme to use it

Just noticed this thread You see i didnt do the original explorer frame It is from Dark7mix by adrianodj25. Since red fusion was my first ever theme made that way, i based it on the dark7mix theme.

bumping this kind of old thread as its still an issue for me, i havent used aero because of it.

ive seen alot of themes btw inc ones from windowsblind none of them satisfy me. All im looking for is aero theme without the outer overlay on the black font or reduced outer overlay strength.

even better the font could be white and have no overlay at all.

hope i didnt annoy anyone

How about this? The glow around the text & or the reflections in the frame can be removed with Windows Style Builder If you are using the stock Aero theme I can do it for you If it's a custom theme you need to ask the maker.
