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 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… 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

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.

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

You can see it here, left bottom corner -…

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.

If you install "StartIsBack" it will fix that issue

Have one question, is there any way to hide the date in the right bottom corner where the clock is? It works with the default theme when i use "small icons" but not with this theme. I don't wanna se an extra tool for it. Thanks for reply
