I'm just looking for skinning help. I installed a theme that mimics the upcoming Windows 8 shell (square window corners, different progress bars, square buttons, etc) and the Actual Window Manager aero title bar buttons don't match anymore. The Windows 8 buttons are squared off and a bit more of a matte color.

The theme's here: http://fediafedia.deviantart.com/art/Windows-8-VS-for-Win7-258514188

Would anyone happen to know how to extract the background bitmaps from the theme, or how to square off the custom title bar corners?

Thanks :D

Hello Arthur,

Thanks for the post.

You could use this title buttons skin to solve the problem.

Best regards.

Not to double post, but is there any possible way to bump the title buttons over from the default Window title buttons? And I don't mean shifting an entire button-length like I'm aware AWM is capable of, but more of a slight shift like three or four pixels?

Thanks :)

There are no way to get it now.

But we'll consider this as a feature request.

Best regards.

That would be an awesome feature! Thanks for the consideration. :)

One last thing I want to ask, and sorry if I'm getting kind of annoying. Is there any way to disable the edgeglow on the title buttons for when you hover over them?
