Unfortunately, it is not possible to make minimize, maximize & close buttons as in the original theme. On any aero themes, the "close" button is 2 times wider. This problem is not solved. You must agree with the new buttons graphics.

This is not original classic theme. This is classic aero theme with GPU acceleration. Solution options: 1) Develop a classic theme with the properties of the aero-theme - then the acceleration of the GPU will be involved 2) patch the system so that acceleration on the classic theme does not turn of...

This picture still isn't true classic theme in Windows. Its actually aero theme. Looking by the minimize, maximize & close buttons.

When will the minimize, maximize & close buttons get fixed?

It doesn't look classic without them. It just looks like a Windows 8, or 10 theme. They're too big.

Hmm, that theme has messed up title bars, like, close, minimize, & maximize.
Not an ideal theme to use.
This: http://winclassic.boards.net/ -- is better. Or the windows blinds one as well because it looks more like the classic theme on Windows 7.

You don't search for 'classic theme & windows 7', the theme just has to work with windows blinds, so just search for classic theme.
Here is a windows blinds theme that has windows 95/98 classic theme, which is what you want. https://www.wincustomize.com/explore/windowblinds/8628/

Oh, ok. Having a more zerg-like border seems like a good idea. I don't mind the border that you had, but I think no orange in it would make it blend better.

A fake user-image sounds nice that the user can configure. Though a user might not want to go through the trouble? I'm not sure.

Wait, what? Live tiles? I thought there was no api for that. I think that was one of the reasons that tiles were not added to classic shell. Although there are other ways to implement tiles.
