Windows 8 Dark [Classic and 7 style]


It's Ivo's Windows 8 skins changed to have Win 10 dark opaque greys on the outside submenu, left column, search, and jump views.
No white menus.
Well, one can still force the second column white by going to "Menu Look" settings tab,
and checking the box "Override glass color" and select white "Menu glass color": FFFFFF


If one does not want any color to show on the second column only to show just grey along with a 7 style outside menu edge then:
Check the box "Reduce glass color more" in skin option
Go to "Menu Look" settings tab and adjust one or both of these settings:
Check the box "Override glass color" and select black "Menu glass color": 000000 (actually black, white, or grey will neutralize any color)
Set "Glass opacity": 0 (Classic Shell with Win7 and Win8 don't have this option)

EDIT: Added option to tone down the color mask.
Sometimes nuclear green is just too much color on Windows 10.

Windows Aero Dark [7style]


I replaced the white menus on the Windows Aero.skin7 file as well.

EDIT:
I had to tweak it a bit more. :)
I changed the original "All Programs" arrow to negative (white inside) so it matches the other arrows.
I put in a 2nd column option to use the original blue-tinted selector button or neutral button.
It's only noticeable when glass color reduced or/and Glass opacity at "0".

EDIT:
Upgraded the 7 style with small changes.

Added a larger 2nd column button option when small icons picked.

Changed the smaller 150% size user picture frame to match the others. Was too thin.
I was going to delete that in-between 64-pixel user picture size, but it's a good compromise to match the 64-pixel hover icons.

Increased the menu border size for 150%.


Added the classic 1/2 style skin too.
As Ivo made the classic 1 column with user picture on top of a colored bar at top of menu,
I carried that XP top bar over as an option to the 2 column menu.
It's good in that the 2nd column is opaque grey with sharper text. :)


Added Aero pin bitmaps

EDIT:
Added dark scrollbar option for Win7/8.
Maybe in future, the coders over at Open-Shell can figure out code to enable scrollbar skinning
to work again on new versions of Win10
Skin is now revD.

Ah, Avalonia, just a stone's throw from Armorica.
One of my distant relatives was from there.

I'm sure I've seen your screenshot before.
Your black buttons are nice.
