I have posted a grey skin based on the original Metro skin
for ClassicShell at deviantART. This skin is intended for use with Windows 8.
The link for the skin (with Start buttons based on
Microsoft’s new logo) is at: http://browse.deviantart.com/customization/skins/?order=9&q=classicshell#/d5nosfi
Can you make sense of the glass settings to match the taskbar colours? I like the Metro skins style and clean lines but the colours change every 30 mins based on my background
If you mean that you want to disable transparency of the Task Bar on Windows 8 then try this:
Browse to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
Copy aero.theme to classic.theme
Open classic.theme with Notepad
Edit the [Theme] section to match the lines below
Edit the [VisualStyles] section to match the lines below
Open Personalization in the Control Panel
Click on Classic under Installed Themes
This new Classic theme should disable the Task Bar's transparency.
I'd also recommend changing the color by clicking on the color block which will take you to Color and Appearance. I have been using the grey color next to Automatic.
thank you :) i do like the colours though. the glass themes do match it but have things like thick borders
