@yzorg, But your minimize-restore-maximize buttons will look different then, as mentioned in the top answer.

................................if your "current theme settings" is not one of the saved theme settings. This means that whatever changes you make to Custom.theme will be lost once you open that page.

@JosephQuinsey, It works, but you need to rename it to something else (e.g. Custom1.theme or move it to another folder. If you try to run .theme files from a path equal to %localappdata%\microsoft\windows\themes\custom.theme, Windows doesn't actually run the file, but merely opens the page Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Personalization (and after opening the page, it will recreate a file called Custom.theme from your "current theme settings" (I've no idea where these settings are saved to)................................

Are you sure about this? Test with a window right under the taskbar. Doesn't seem to work on 8.1.

comment Why are there directories called Local, LocalLow, and Roaming under \Users\<username>?
@JaredHarley, So shouldn't LocalLow actually be placed at Local/Low instead? Also, how did you manage to find those resources? Did you wrote them?

@nhinkle, Putting a solid background doesn't work. The translucent taskbar is on the layer before the solid background. (win 8.1 here)

@LafinJack, But how does stardock do that? They had got to be some registry settings to change right?

@yzorg, Good point, but how can replace theme1.theme and theme2.theme inside the folder? I've tried running explorer.exe as administrator but am still unable to get it into the folder.
