Default Windows 10 OS theme for dark Reaper themes

Posted in another thread sharing a Windows 10 OS theme that makes all windows and menus in Reaper fit a dark Reaper theme (specifically for my Commala theme mod). It might also work for you, try it out:

Since all my old W7 OS themes no longer worked, I began the search for a new OS theme. I wasn't fond of all the methods requiring patching and associated hassle, but I found one theme that was a simple drop-in, as it was just an edited high-contrast theme. So, as is my wont, I made my own and I am quite pleased with the results, overall. If any of you are on Windows 10 and don't mind copying a file to a theme folder, you might also appreciate it.

It's designed specifically to complement my Commala theme mod, but you could open it as a text file and edit it to fit your needs. The only caveat to using a high-contrast theme to accomplish this, is that some OS elements are not as attractive: the taskbar, some app windows, Google Chrome's menus. But Reaper looks good!



Here's a download link:


Copy this file to C:\Users\[YOUR USER ID]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes, and double-click it.

OT: personally, once measures such as these are taken (to accomodate a dark theme), I'm satisfied with Reaper's UI.
