What's bothered me with numerous tutorials on making Windows 8-10 look like older operating systems is that the title bar is never changed and it really really bothers me for some reason and I'm wondering if the ability to change how the title bars look can be implemented into Classic Shell. All I want really is just a simple yes or no answer and maybe a why it can/can't be implemented.

So, yeah, will changing title bars ever be implemented?

No, Classic Shell doesn't mess with the look of individual windows or other software in general.

Well, that's unfortunate. I really wanted a classic Windows XP/7 feel.

I would recommend using Windows 7 or 8.1 with Aero Glass for Win8 project. Windows 10 will give you trouble and pain forever.

While it's not free, I'd recommend buying WindowBlinds if you want that sort of skinning. It's pretty cheap too, 9.99 USD. Plays nicely with Classic Shell as far as I can see.

I'd like to add that Windows Visual Styles are far cheaper. Free, in fact.

Heck, here's one for Windows 8.1, to get you started: https://simplexdesignsart.deviantart.co ... -513355779

Please specify what you want it look like. This is how it looks on my machine:
