Owl-in-1 for Windows 10 Anniversary Update by gsw953onDA Owl-in-1 for Windows 10 Anniversary Update by gsw953onDA
Here is an updated version of one of my favorite Windows 7 themes
When I making it I couldn't resist playing with the Forward\back buttons
Anyways this theme is inspired by and based off of work
by my friend Merrdyn merrdyn.deviantart.com

There is a match Start button here Owlstart by Merrdyn

And more matching wallpapers here Owldump by Merrdyn

All the usual things apply to get this theme up and running
but for those who are unsure what is needed look here virtualcustoms.net/showthread.…

This theme is for Windows 10 Version 1607(Anniversary Update\Redstone)

October 15 2016

How come I can't Alt-Tab now that I have this theme installed? Also, I seem to be unable to install that Token Light Icon Pack with IconPackage from the zip file I downloaded and it keeps saying, "Error: no icon pack was found in the file:"

I see that there is a problem with Alt-Tab,I will look into fixing it and update the theme when I figure it out.
Thanks for finding that,it's something a rarely use so it went unnoticed

umm if i may, this happens cuz during the import in wsb some parts are duplicated & the extra set isplaced in the wrong places.  So under Windows & Caption buttons> Aero> DWM Window> Contols> Misc> Start Button/Metro app switcher & delete the image there(which most likely will be any one of the caption buttons) , set BGTYPE to none & IMAGECOUNT to 0. Now add BORDERCOLOR, BORDERSIZE, & ALPHALEVEL & the set their values..reload test & you should find alt-tab workng

it's an ipack,unzip the download and run the Token Light .exe and follow the installer instructions
For more info on ipack's see here mrbladedesigns.com/ipack-build…
also they do take a few minutes to install

I realized that all I needed to do was run the EXE file. I'm stupid, sorry. I have the icon pack now. Also, I'm able to alt-tab. Everything seems to be working now. Not sure what the alt-tab problem was about at first though. I literally couldn't do it for a little while. Thanks for your replies and thanks for making this awesome theme. You are so talented! I think I'll favorite this one. :) I'm a fan of darker colored and smooth, plain themes like this. One final thing, though. I noticed that in your screenshot here, your Windows taskbar at the bottom is green and has those diagonal lines in them & your icons at the bottom are different, too. Mine's solid black. Your start button is also slightly bigger. I'll show you a screenshot. Here, check it out here: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/22… Mine's on the bottom with the solid color, while yours is on the top with the diagonal lines, green color & bigger start button.

Cool,I happy everything worked out for you.
The taskbar in the screenshots is theme because I'm
using Start is Back startisback.com/
This app gives you the old Windows 7 start menu plus allows 
the taskbar to get themed

Hmm, everything isn't working after all. I still can't alt-tab. It was working for a little while, but it hasn't worked all day today. I've tried restarting my computer and also ending/restarting explorer.exe. Nothing works. It worked when I switched to another custom Windows 10 theme that I have installed, but not for this one. I guess my only choice is to find another theme I like, or just go back to the default Windows 10 style. :( Any idea how to uninstall those system icons?

I am working on a fix for alt-tab and should have it fixed later this week.
For the icons just got to Programs and Features and uninstall them,just 
like uninstalling a regular program

Just wondering if you fixed the alt-tab issue since the last time I replied to you 7 days ago.

How did you get those icons? I'd like to have them. Like, in the "This PC" section.

When you have time could you maybe do an updated Windows 10 wallpaper for it?
