Hi there. Can I know how do I apply the navigation bar? I remembered previously in win7 every theme provides explorerframe.dll. Somehow I couldn't find it in windows 8.1 themes.

Love this theme, especially the grey gradients selections and the big ss shadows, but sadly I get these 2 bugs under 8.1, even after the update :(
(others appear to have the same issues so I'll use their captures if it's ok):

- the win7 glow effect title works for some windows (Computer, Documents and folders in general) but not for others (setting windows like the Personalisation or Control Panel, as well as programs windows, like VLC for example). The title gets a darker highlight instead. imageshack.com/a/img855/4514/d… (unlike this capture I don't have this problem with the C: folder, though). Not a big deal but makes the title unreadable if you use dark colors.

- I get oversized Pin and Close icons when I right click a taskbar tab img15.hostingpics.net/pics/922… (this one is a bit more annoying).

Is it as beautiful like on Windows 7, or has a bit worse looking?

Doesn't it need some more tweeks (like for turning on transparency)?

(sorry for weird questions: I'm thinking to install Windows 8 only for using with this theme... it's default looking is just awful)

Almost perfect theme, but right-click menu on taskbar icons (so called 'jump-list') is utterly broken on Win 8.1.
Anyway thanks for the job, it's one of my favorite themes since Win7.
