From eveyrthing I could find so far - this is the best dark theme for Win 10. It does not change too much, and looks professional enough, unlike some others. Penumbra, for example, changes too much icons for my taste. My main goal was to just make everything darker, including explorer, to make it easy on my eyes, since I mostly work and play in dark.

One question though! Can I change the accent color from this pink-ish to something else? My favorite is orange, or something between orange and yellow. Can I somehow edit it myself? Would be perfect.

I went to look at how to instal the theme. I downloaded the correct patcher for Windows 10. For some reason, even though I have the creator's update, the version that I have says it isn't patched. Any ideas? I would really love to scrap these darn white windows lol.

will you make an update to the creator's version? because now you can't see what you select when you select something, the effect is gone

Two thing though. Can we get one with dark ribbons?

Can you change the color of these texts into white. I think it would be looking better. (Using Windows 10 Pro 64 bit Version 1607)

mikkkiz Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2016
Neiio, could you give link or name of the icon pack that you have on the picture ? :)

NeonHD Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2016
What???? In Real Life????? This is so sad, I just stumbled upon his themes and had no idea that he passed away.......
I followed the instructions, but the only thing that changes is that the color of my explorer changes. Help?
I also tried replacing the .dll files but nothing happens even after i restart explorer.

MrDark0 Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2016
how i can fix this
neiio Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Use oldnewexplorer to disable the ribbon. :)
MrDark0 Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2016
I can't seem to figure out how to fix these two issues.

edit: White bar was from QT Tab bar
edit2:  Classic Start Menu has their own status bar you have to disable from their settings as well

My back and forward arrows (eg. file explorer) arent being themed. Any help?
neiio Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Uncheck the option in oldnewexplorer to use the alternate buttons.
nickbarrow1 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2016
oh you are the man. thanks so much! keep up the great work

Gah! This kills Office.

How do I get my black text on white paper back?

How to Use the Shell ????
Dragonix193 Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2016
Way too complicated. An easier way to install this theme into Windows 10 would be much appreciated. Also, UltraUXThemePatcher doesn't support my version of Windows 10, so it's pretty much impossible for me. Sucks too, because I've got the whole pastel red theme going on and this fits perfectly with my Rainmeter setup and AeroRainbow colour set...
ScatteredOsyx Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Not much the Neiio can do about that... It's all up to Microsoft to make it harder or easier.
RenanRossi Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2016
Plz, bring this theme for Windows 10 RS1.
sayak-life Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2016
Great Theme! Thanks! I have uploaded 2 screenshots.. Can those areas be made black? 1.

ScatteredOsyx Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
The first can't be updated, that ribbon is the reason to use ONE (Old New Explorer).
dsp418 Featured By Owner Edited Jun 25, 2016
This looks great!
But I'm confused, which one am I supposed to use? RTM or November? I'm on win10 10586.420
MaelstromJG Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2016
November M8
Syatek Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Awesome!!! Any way I can make the accent blue instead of red? :)
witsawat33 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
the start menu and traffic button doesn't show as it is when i customize the display to above 100% (my screen resolution is 4k - 38400x2160, so I have to adjust the display to 250%, if not everything will be so small)
Hope you release an update soon :)
ddoodlr Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Can you port this into Windows 7 and 8, 8.1? would like to use em, so cool btw. slayin it bruh! :D
AlphaUMi Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2016
I really love this theme, but there is a way to change the pink color with something else like blue? Maybe some info on what to edit in the .theme file? Or could I make a request for a blue color variant? :)
My compliments anyway!
Misaelking Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2016

savant360 Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2016
This looks amazing but I haven't been able to get it to work yet!Changing the theme only changes the accent colour and background, not the actual explorer skin :( help?
Moeforever1 Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2016
That's great!
emilykdk Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2016

Guh. This is absolutely beautiful. Oh Noes! Oh Noes! Oh Noes! 
Would this work on Win8? (I'm allergic to new things XD )
But I'm tempted to update to 10 just for this if it won't work on 8. :eager: by darkmoon3636

I just did my computer and went to Win10 Pro Insider Preview 1151 OS Build 11082.1000.... Any chance you have already tested if the post november update is still valid? 
Classifiedx Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2016
Can you please provide a full guide which explains how to fully apply this theme including the icons? The download files only include the themes which change the window visual style but how do you change the folder icons/drive icons etc? Thanks
Oi3pRNnX Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2016
I've followed the guide you've provided step by step but the theme doesn't seem to work for me. When I apply it the caption buttons on the windows do not change, there's only a color change like when I select things, background, etc.
I'm using the November edition.
Zengl Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2016
any reason as to why my disk drive bar is dashed instead of soild? for reference.
