Hi neiio, thanks for all the hard work! 
But can you please make so your themes will not black out the document page in Office as in Word, Excel or Powerpoint ? 
Theme like Penumbra 10 can do that, but has different issues, so I cannot use it:  scope10.deviantart.com/art/Pen…

can you please correct your themes? Thank you!

Could I have some help, I've used arc dark for ages but whenever I change my colors in the settings of windows arc dark reverts them back to the stock arc colors any way to fix it?

When I change the colors in setting, it will create a new unsaved theme in Personalization-->My Themes. Try right click on the unsaved theme and save it. It will ask a name for the unsaved theme. Rename it to a name like "Arc Dark Change Color" for example. Save it and your problem should go. If it not solve your problem I'm not sure of other solution for it.

I must be doing something wrong. I chose the arc flat theme, installed the arc icon pack, configured the oldexplorer program, and my theme looks nothing like this. This is what my explorer window looks like: vgy.me/U1Xdo2.png and this is what my oldexplorer settings are: vgy.me/0ZKUp3.png

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

does anyone else encounter the bug that once you have a custom theme, you can't login after a cold reboot?
neither PIN nor p/w get's me past the login screen, the login method is accepted but i get to a loop and never reach the desktop.
once i switch back to a windows theme, login after cold reboot is no problem.

For some reason the theme works perfect after applying(arc dark), but after hibernation some of the theme turns white(notepad, chrome omnibar, windows directory bar, icon attributes[windows shell], etc).

The only option I have right now is to reapply the theme.  Any idea what's going on?

What theme patch are using? Try Theme Signature Bypass: virtualcustoms.net/attachment.…
Uninstall whatever theme patch your using-Reboot
Install only Theme Signature Bypass as Admin
It will log you out so log back in
Apply your theme
Hope this helps.

Hi can you help me with this?

I have tried what you have suggested, however the problem persists. After putting the computer to sleep or hibernation, the theme is automatically change to "Unsaved theme", which is created even after deleting it. The theme is like the Windows' default theme with white menus and control panels, file explorer.

I have tried to use Compare It to compare the Unsaved Theme file to the actually theme file that I use, there is a different there which I guess could be why the  system keep creating the Unsaved Theme, however I do not know code so I don't know what application is actually doing the change.

Thank you so much for your help.
