Love Cool... working fine... thanx for you n 'AngelWZR' for making this theme perfect for windows 8.1 👍
The main reason why I love this theme is- no border, have cool shadow & there is no need of 'ribbon disabler' or 'aero glass mod' like most other themes...

So here's another update for those who using this theme on Windows 8.1 — now with working context menus on the Start screen.
Just replace existing Exon.msstyles with this
As for the grey titlebar, I've never experienced this bug.

This is not the issue that we really care about at the moment, sure it's nice that you've fixed the contextual menus and what not, but a lot of us cannot even use the theme because the background (inactive) menus is just.. very unappealing to look at. 

This theme has not been updated in several months and it's a relatively quick and easy fix for those who know what they are doing within themes e.g. Theme developers and what not.

Furthermore, the link that you gave us, I'm not sure what's wrong with it, but because the host is located in russia, it's taking forever to load for me and then it just hangs, upload it onto mega or fileshare or something.

Thanks anyway.

Let's not get carried away.  You CAN use the theme with "gasp" light grey background behind system window title text.

When someone is nice enough to take their time to fix something and share it (even though it's not something you were hoping for), you probably should use a lighter tone.

AngelWZR: If you can take a look at it and try to tackle it, great!  If not, thanks for the update that you didn't have to share!  I'm still hoping that you take a look into it though lol.

Open the control panel, then open an explorer window like "This PC".  The control panel title should have a grey background.  This happens with all inactive system windows except explorer.

This is a similar theme that does not have this problem:…

I would fix it myself but have no idea where to look for to fix it.

By the way, thank you for the new update!
