Two Tone (Windows 7 style)
Works with version CSM 4.2.4 Made for Windows 10.
Can work somewhat same on Windows 7, using Win 7 settings below.
After downloading file, paste in skins folder. Usually C:\Program Files\Classic Shell\Skins
Then go to "Start Menu Style" tab. Pick "Windows 7 style".
Pick "Two Tone" in Skin tab.
Win 7 settings.
In my opinion, Windows 7 has a better blur. Just enough to blur text, and is powerfully transparent.
To get this skin a little closer to Windows 10 looks, do the following:
Open the "Menu Look" tab. Crank up the "Menu glass intensity" to 100.
Set the "menu blending color" to 25.
A different kind of beast.
As stated in the skinning tutorial,
can't have full glass on the left side, only partial, when using Windows 7 style.
So it's a bit difficult to keep the left and right columns in balance.
Depending on what's on desktop behind menu, the left will be stable,
and the right will fluctuate wildly between light and dark,
even matching sometimes.
I decided to use right main column to resemble original 10 menu,
and the left column with mild light, or mild dark color.
Just cannibalized parts from Metro, America RWB, and Two tone classic.
I recycle, you know!
If you don't want transparency, or blur, go into menu look tab.
Make sure "Enable menu glass" is checked, then set "Glass opacity" to 100.
Then either use the "Override glass color" boxes,
or use Windows Personalization Color settings to set the type of color/grey you want.
Well that's about a good as I can make it, with my limited abilities.
Feel free to change the skin for the better, or use parts for your own menu skin.
This has been quite the adventure, thanks to the mask man, (Ivo).
Thank you, Ivo.
Ivo has created so many different ways of using masks,
(the text, or bitmap pictures, that instruct where to apply steady, or changing color).
Difficult to keep up with it all. I see even text, can now have a mask applied to it!
I have only tried a few of the masking techniques, in skins that I have made, or modified.
Never even tried the (start screen colors, or tint colors). As it's a bit of a guessing game, as to what Win 8/10 colors will look like, even though Ivo has provided a great Color palette utility. Some change tint, others stay the same.
