Are you talking about the visual style or the app?

I was wondering the same thing. Either way, I find that switching Visual Styles in general on Windows 10 crashes Explorer, though that hardly calls for a System Restore... .-.

The style. I didn't install Theme Signature Bypass yet, so I might give that a shot.

You'll need Theme Signature Bypass unless you're running November or Anniversary Update. Also, the style will only work if you are on November Update or newer (themes designed for November Update or newer break Explorer on older builds).

OH WAIT, I'm an idiot. I thought I was on the November Update; I'm actually on the Anniversary Update. Silly me. :P

Looks good! I found out I can use StartIsBack to edit the taskbar, is there a way to make the icons black instead of white though?

I've been searching but haven't found an answer to that one yet...

Looks nice, are you going to do the same with Aero style?

It would be awesome if Microsoft recreated these old iconic themes, including Luna, Aero, and Classic to switch to in Windows 10 just for the nostalgia effects.

I completely agree, they should make that, also with Flip3D feature!
