Hello,

I'm a total WSB beginner. Right now, I'm just playing around with existing visual styles and try to customize them to my needs. I noticed that the window titles of some of these styles do not have text glow. So, I tried to implement it myself. I was successful for normal windows, but it did not work for windows that use ribbons, like the Explorer, Paint, Office 2010 and others. What am I missing?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Are you talking about 7 or 8?

In 8 default Aero there isn't any titlebar text glow.

In 7 you can remove ribbon titlebar text glow doing this: http://vistastylebuilder.com/forum/index.php?topic=1929.msg10937#new

But in 7 there is no explorer ribbon. So I'm not sure what you are asking..

Since this is the "Windows 8 - Help" area, I thought it was clear that I am talking about W8. I also thought that I made myself clear. Sorry for causing misunderstandings.

I know that there is no titlebar text glow in 8's standard theme. So, I downloaded lots of others from deviantArt and wanted to add this text glow to one of them (as I stated in my original post). But, as I said, it did not work for windows with ribbons.
