This is a real fast rework of the official Metro Skin to get a bit closer to Windows 10's look.
It should be fairly complete, I think, and be quite a close match to the official look. If I forgot to theme something just say so and I'll try to change the forgotten color setting ;).



Now also on DeviantArt!



There are some other settings you need to change if you want to get as close to the Win 10 look as possible:

Menu Look
  • Enable menu glass: On
  • Override glass color: On
  • Menu glass color: 0A0A0A, although 000000 works nicely as well
  • Glass opacity: 40

Enjoy!





ToDo:
  • Find and squash any bugs ;)

Ooooh, thanks for this! :)

I've added something close to the Win10 and @davestewart's arrows in the skin. Also will have to see about changing the icons...

The right side icons don't seem to have the option to show for this skin. Is there some sort of tweak that needs to be done to get them to show?

Open the skin in reshacker and find this:
Main_no_icons2=1
Then change it to Main_no_icons2=0
and recompile

The right side column shows all icons at once only in the Classic with two columns style. For Windows 7 style, you get 1 icon in place of the user pic of the currently selected item.

New version (v1.03) is out:
  • scroll bars are now fairly close to Win10's, and much better all around
  • shutdown button looks a lot better
  • some arrow tweaks

Fun fact:
Scrollbar transparency is calculated from whatever is behind the start menu, as opposed to all other transparencies, which are relative to the (already transparent) start menu background. Which means a scroll bar transparency of 0 will just show the your wallpaper or whatever, while a button with transparency 0 will look the same as the start menu background (see e.g. the shutdown button below).

For the new version 1.03, something wonky. Only get white default menu (skinless). :|
Maybe needs a bitmap mask for main two sep?


EDIT: Fixed


Other.
Yep, the scrollbar transparency got me confused for awhile, on skins I modded.
Even worse headache is if glass blur option is turned off. Transparency/glass color goes different.
There is probably exact math to it. I had to wing it on mine. :)

EDIT:
Only Ivo knows the equation.
If one has a lot of time on their hands,
a graph could be made with lots of different numerical value samples,
for glass color on, and glass blur off.

Hm, something went wrong with the final refactor I did yesterday and I didn't test it properly :/ Anywys, thanks for notifying me, should be fixed now (kinda -- the code is super messy now :D).

I'd actually be very interested in the exact math. Also, I'd kinda like to have an option for handling other transparencies the same as the scroll bar transparency...

Why, oh why did you stop supporting the opaque feature?
Because the text rendering looks much better with it enabled, without it, text looks blurry.

If I had to guess, I'd guess it's just a matter of having too many features to feasibly manage and maintain .___.
