UPDATE | 

01-15-2014 (Startmenu & Jumplist fixed, big thanks to MrGRiM01)
01-16-2014 (Combined small taskbar fix)


Welcome to the return of Kemikal by lassekongo83 for your Windows 8 and 8.1 desktop.
To get started you'll first need to make sure your system is patched to accept themes.
I recommend using uxstyle.com/ for a user friendly install.
Here is a more in depth article on installing Visual Styles or Themes.
Once your system is pathed it's time to install the themes.
Place the contents of the downloaded 'themes' folder into your 
'WindowsResourcesThemes' folder.
You should then be able to see your themes installed if you right click on your desktop and select 'personalize' from the menu.  There you'll be able to choose which them you wish to use.
Some special instructions for Windows 8.1 users, there is an included registry hack to modify the caption text to blank.  Make sure to use it.
Also for a more minimal look try using Ribbon Disabler for Windows 8 found here winaero.com/comment.php?commen… it also works on 8.1.

If you have any questions don't be afraid to ask.

This theme is open source...


See the original & Windows 7 port  here

Love this theme.. :)

But there's a bug..  you can't resize icons etc in win 8.1 startmenu..  as soon as this skin is loaded the rightclick menu is gone..
Guess it's because they changed it from an appbar in the bottom to a standard rightclick menu :)

Would Realy like it fixed because this is THE best win8.1 theme out there imho :)

Found a solution here: social.technet.microsoft.com/F…
for other who have the same problem use win+z for customize menu :)

This theme is the theme i have been looking for all along... but there's one problem. There's a black text problem. Look at Squeemishness for more info.

Found a bug, have been trying to fix it with no avail.
The place where the window title would be is a blacked-out square.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Hello,

Your theme rocks but i find annoying bug, dunno if you missed it.


You can see it here, left bottom corner - s8.postimg.org/w3rizkyxx/Zrzut…


Background and icons are messed up in Right-Click menu at taskbar


Please fix this ASAP. That's best Win 8.1 theme I've found. If you need any help then ask, im programmer.


Regards

If you install "StartIsBack" it will fix that issue

Can confirm having the same issue as st0nez0r. Running 8.1, with no start menu replacement.

What start menu are you using? 

I'm using start8. not sure if that makes a difference... I'm willing to try something else.

This theme will only work correctly with Start Is Back, the only true start menu replacement as it uses the original msstyles images, unlike all the other start menu replacements, it can also fix the jump list bug from all windows 8 themes that occur when using them on 8.1, this bug occurs because the start menu images were removed by MS in 8.1 and they jumbled the jump list images and properties around in the old start menu locations, Tyhiy the creator of Start is Back was able to undo these changes and return the full functionality of the start menu and the jump list.

Hi neiio,

I've tested now 2 Themes of you and have both the same error when I run, right-click on an open tray icon: www.bilder-upload.eu/show.php?…

Do you have any idea why this is?

Otherwise, great job. Also thanks to MrGrim!

Hey neiio, using "always combined" for the pinned shortcuts turns the taskbar black when the size is set to small. The rest of it looks great though.

That's not a problem of it being set to small. It's because you're using "always combined" for the pinned programs.

Okay, so none of your themes have a working start menu on my PC. I don't know why, every other theme by every other theme creator works just fine, but not yours. Tried multiple ones, all of them bug out in a different way.

Nice work mate, shame about the start menu and jump list messing up though, I did have a play and got the start menu to work normally but the jump list just wont work even though all the properties are where they are meant to be.

Not sure exactly how the start menu was meant to look in this theme but this is mine now oi42.tinypic.com/4jn9j.jpg

Thanks neiio, your pretty good yourself, I worked on it a little more and found why the jump list wasn't working, you will need to be using Start Is Back though to make the theme work correctly, there is also a second version that I included for use with OldNewExplorer by Tyhiy that adds a few new features oi44.tinypic.com/2hqv1b4.jpg
