Does your Start9 also modify Windows themes?

It's a modular shell. It doesn't modify Themes though.

Alternatively, Start9's Taskbar offerings could easily provide such options.

Start9 isn't exactly ready for day-to-day use as of yet, though, so atleast for the moment, Jcee's solution would definitely be the way to go IMO.
