VERSION 2.0.0 Stable on CREATORS UPDATE And Earlier / Experimental On Insider Builds
Special Thanks to Shemhamforash for All His Help
I HAVE INCORPORATED A FIX SO THAT 3RD-PARTY THEMES WORK ON BUILDS 15025 & ON UP TO RS3. CHOOSE THE CLASSIC PERSONALIZATION RIGHT-CLICK MENU TO CHANGE THEMES IN CREATORS UPDATE & REDSTONE 3 BUILDS. AS ALWAYS BE SAFE AND BACK UP YOUR INSTALL.
Download file using link below.
Double-click on the file to extract it to your computer. Shortcuts will be placed on your desktop.
Double-click the shortcut for the Windows Black Theme.
DO NOT RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR IT IS SELF-ELEVATING.
Follow the instructions to install the patches and themes for your version of Windows 10.
You can install additional customizations at any time, but you MUST restart your computer to use the themes.
Any additional themes you download can be copied into the WindowsResourcesThemes folder at a later time to use.
I have created an All-In-One Installer/Uninstaller for Mr GRiM’s Black Themes. This works on Windows 10 builds 10240, 10586, 14393, and RS2 including any NEW builds. If you try to run it on any other versions of Windows it will not let you do anything. There are plenty of safeguards so you will not BORK your system. Other customizations are available also, and you can also create a restore point if you wish. This program is self extracting, and new versions will over write older ones. A shortcut will be placed on your desktop to the program, and to the readfirst file. You do not have to run as administrator as it is self elevating. Just run the program, and make your choices.
If you are updating from one Insider Build (RS2) to another, I recommend switching to a DEFAULT Windows theme BEFORE upgrading, then when finished run the Black Theme Installer, and reinstall the Black Themes. This should alleviate any problems. Nothing is guaranteed with an update. Clean install works best.
