Hello! I'm running Windows 8.1 Version 6.3 version 9600 with Classic shell, OldNewExplorer, and ClassicThemeA.exe set as a scheduled task.
Everything works perfectly save for the taskbar, which is using a light blue font making most text nigh-unreadable, as can be seen below.
Is this a common issue? If so, how do I correct it? If not, does anyone know what might be causing it? The only thing I can think of that might cause issues with the taskbar is uxstyle, which I have installed but am not currently using.
EDIT: I have confirmed that the appearance of the taskbar has, for some reason, been tied to the "window borders and taskbar" colors as set by the default windows 8.1 control panel.
Saint Jimmy: hayafumi Not quite, as you'd end up having to replace many a component to get it to function (Explorer is fairly deeply ingrained in Windows's internals), at which point you may as well install 2000 and call it a day.

meow: I have made a tutorial on how to get centered title text in windows 7! It’s in the visual styles section.
