A Touch of Color-Blue updated by gsw953onDA A Touch of Color-Blue updated by gsw953onDA
Here is the next color in the A Touch of Color Series
It is pretty much the same as there red version
but with a darker Explorer background which I think
looks better when in full glass mode!
It is designed to be used with Ribbon Disabler
and StartIsBack
And is shown here in full glass mode using Aero Glass for Windows 8 rtm
and MooO Transparent Menu and Black Glass Enhanced for transparency

The wallpaper I used for the preview is Shutter by Matchbookgirl
You can get a copy from here gallery her matchbookgirl.deviantart.com/a…

Instructions,and some extra's are included


June 1\2014
This theme has now been updated to use OldNewExplorer
and is 8.1.1 compatible

Wow, thanks so much! They are wonderful. Would you consider uploading them on www.blackbox4windows.com as well? I can't upload them for you, you have to register yourself. Only members can upload and download stuff, it's a measure against art theft :)

Hey, I just did a featured video on an overview of the theme. I included your name in the title and also tagged it. I have another video that I showcase that includes your theme. Great work.

I've been fairly good. I'll be even better next week. I am doing another theme overview of the ultimate clean and I am pretty sure I mentioned you in the video. I am going to lean towards showcasing theme designers themes more often while still doing Tutorials, But this week will be only themes to get the attention of those that been wanting this type of content. 

The reason why I'm doing it is people rather not download a theme apply it and then remove it. I think doing overviews allows them to decide if all the aspects of the theme work well for them. I'm doing Theme and then Skinpack theme back to back. So tomorrow will be an Alienware theme since I have an Alienware 18. But I wanted to do yours first since I'm digging it.

Man I wish I could use this theme, I love it.

Please make this work with 8.1 and also make the installation more user-friendly or newbie-friendly because people who have a fresh installation of windows 8.1 without all those extra tools you need to make it look like that picture and never messed with themes will be clueless, like I was. Just put everything in one pack, not just the theme and with clear instructions. I actually had to recover from a backup because aero glass totally f*cked up my computer, couldn't even uninstall it. Maybe I'm just retarded tho.

The theme will be updated as soonI get some free time,not to much longer I hope
As for Aero Glass I have had no issues with it
I am running 64 bit 8.1 pro with all windows updates installed
Maybe check here to maybe find a solution www.msfn.org/board/forum/174-w…

I have the control panel panes white, other than that it works and looks amazing! Any chance of seeing the shell32.dll updated? Mine is 6.3.9600.16456, I think its best not to replace it. What is strange is the Gray8.1 Glass theme makes the control panel panes black without changing shell32.dll...

Thanks for the work, my choice for now in Win 8.1!

:icongsw953onda:
gsw953onDA Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
yes gray8.1 uses a new method to get the control panel images,
that doesn't involve changing the shell32.dll.It is now done by the theme
and OldNewExplorer.This way seem much better.
I will be updating all my older themes to use this method shortly.
I can do Touch of Color-blue this weekend.
I will let you know once the update is posted
