Here's one way:  http://vistastylebuilder.com/forum/index.php?topic=2112.msg12159#msg12159


Using Grim's custom classmap found here: http://virtualcustoms.net/showthread.php/63105-Custom-Class-Maps-for-WSB-1-5-5-6  (should work in 10...maybe he's made new ones. I don't know)

Here's new ones he made for 10: http://virtualcustoms.net/showthread.php/69831-Custom-Class-Maps-and-Class-Groups-for-Windows-10?highlight=class+maps

I don't know if they are necessary. Maybe so. I don't use OldNewExplorer anymore so I don't know for sure.

Hi all
Well some feedback under windows 10 pro 10586.36
3am or Mr Grim , do you know if there is any existing visual style including a custom explorer background ( I browsed the whole web without success ) so I can test- edit by myself ?

I got several blank screens when trying to make my own ones  Embarrassed ( don't understant all the steps when trying to use Mr Grim class files or shellstyle( where do I put them ? )

Drives me crazy lol

Thanks

Here http://gsw953onda.deviantart.com/art/Thin-White-Line-revisited-for-Windows-10-TH2-578854258
There is an image in 2 places
Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Items View > ItemsView
and
Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Items View > ItemsView > Selected Property > Background
You will need to use the Shellstyle.dll that is with the theme
and also have New Old Explorer installed

Hi gsw here is a preview of your theme  with custom pic Smiley ( works well )

I have 2 pbs though:

- how do I change font size for classic shell start menu and the one used for clock in systray? ( can't find it )

- where can I move the commandbar on top rather than bottom ? ( is it in shellstyle? )

Oh sorry forgot about the bottom command bar.
Just grab a shellstyle out of one of my other 10586 themes. They all should be modified to show Explorer images
