hello there, i can't find any skin in the database which match with win10 blur design

do you know if there are a skin somewhere which have this blur backgound and flat :




i actually use the built-in skin "Metro" which is almost perfect for me except that the blur/color being different :( :




thanks you in advance :)


*EDIT, i've tweaked the setting "glass transparency" and it look a bit more like windows, but the setting "overdrive glass color" seem to not work :( i can't manage to have the desired style

Every skin decides how much of the glass color to use and how to mix it with its own color. On one end you have the "full glass" skin which uses the glass color at almost 100%, and on the other you have "metro" and "midnight", which ignore the glass color almost completely.
It is designed to make all of the skin elements be readable and with enough contrast.

In this example, the "metro" skin uses the system metro colors for its elements - background, text, selection, various highlights. Those colors are picked to work well together. Changing the background color arbitrarily will make them not match anymore. For example if you pick a white color the text wont be readable.

thanks for infos, i've managed to have a good result by tweaking overdrive glass color and Glass opacity of the "Smoked Glass" default skin, the only thing is bugging me on this skin is the place of the corners :/ i've opened a thread in the bug section

Starting with Classic Shell 4.2.5, the Metro and Midnight skins support transparency in both columns in Windows 7 style.
