  • VG, there is a theme bug in Programs and Features while I use Windows Vista Theme for Windows 7. The Command Bar background it looks like Default Windows 7 Aero theme.

  • VG

    ^^ The Programs and Features window doesn't use Windows theme's command bar resources. Microsoft has cleverly used similar image resources in both locations. So the theme developer will also need to change the required image resources to change the command bar appearance in Programs and Features window.

    Check "Control Panel Task Band Goof-up" in following topic:

    Microsoft didnt fix it properly in Windows 7. They just used the same resources in both locations.

  • Another bug found in the same theme on show hidden icons while Taskbar is on left, top, and right. Screenshot :
