    SIB Supports W10 Taskbar (thanks a million, Mr. Grim and Dark Knight)

    I don't know if this is the right place ... but I want to thank you [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] your efforts to get back on W10 a themeable taskbar, by convincing the SIB's author about it's possible.

    I'm just testing SIB ++ 1.1.9, and wow!! ... this a wonderful Christmas gift !!

    I'm very-very-very grateful !!!!

    I'm very happy as well, I have already updated all my themes to bring back full taskbar skinning but I wont upload them just yet, I am going to give Tihiy a few more days to see what else he might add back in for us and when I am happy with all the testing I will upload the updated themes

    Now all we need is a proper theme patcher or updated uxStyle.

    Thanks Erin, I am happy about it myself. Start is back is a MUCH better product than Start 10 and I just didn't want Starbloat taking all the credit for skinning the taskbar when I knew Tihly could do it too. He thought Start 10 was only using textures on the task bar until I showed him that you could use pretty much any image that you wanted in Start 10 which meant you could skin the taskbar, I think it was two days later and we were getting test builds from him.

    I was actually getting ready to fork over money to Starbloat just to have a skinned taskbar without having to use twenty different other tools when Tihly decided to do this and I am truly thankful that he did.

    It'll be kind of a pain because themers will have to re - release their themes for 10 to include the taskbar but will be much better for it, unlike Start 10 where you must skin the taskbar as an extra step after choosing the type of start menu you want, with StartisBack++ the taskbar will be skinned as soon as you choose the custom start menu for that theme. And just the fact that StartisBack++ is a better product than Start 10, SIB++ doesn't have to run in the system tray as Start 10 does, SIB++ doesn't suck down system resources as Start 10 does, when you uninstall SIB++ it's gone, with Start 10 you'll be picking remnants of Stardock bloat off your system for months to come, but the best yet is that SIB is cheaper than Start 10!

    Actually, if Big Muscle put some time into it I think that the SignatureThemeBypass could be the new UXStyle, I think that the patcher needs to run in the registry and memory, it runs smoother and better that way.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] dhjohns auto installer works just fine for patching system files. what we need is a new version of areoglass. lots of peeps including myself are not going to go through the hops to get the current iteration of aeroglass up and running especially since part of the instructions are in a different language.

    Yeah, I'll agree with that, I don't have the current version of aeroglass installed because it doesn't work with TH2 and there are no real good instructions on how to make the beta work.
