Hey guys I have a problem, when I look in a window it shows up with two X out buttons and maximize/minimize. It makes a not as good looking one on top and it ruins the look of the theme. Here is an image:

Hi, I had similiar problem, I`m not IT pro but I still figured it out, my taskbar and explorer.exe was fucked up because I wrongly used QuickFrame. What I did (if you don`t know what and how and you`re viewing this from another device then heres something pretty basic you should know - ctrl+alt+del --> task manager --> File --> new task --> ''yourbrowser''.exe (ex. firefox.exe) so you can access web and download things you need cause you can`t run cmd as administrator through task manager)
So what you need to do is pretty few simple steps, I did it over complicated and ended up to this.

1.… download installer
2. install it and make sure to run it as installation finishes, cause (ayy lmao) you cant access directories n shit.
3. by installing it you will have it with administrator right already. So when it launches press ''hacker --> Run.. --> cmd
4. googling a bit I found this… so just type in the command '' sfc /scannow '' and reboot it once it finishes scanning and fixing shit
5. ????

Maybe someone knows a better option, like running cmd as administrator without all this crap but I tried all, explorer is one huge bitch but if someone finds this useful - you`re welcome ^u^

This is awesome, but I have one major issue: it causes Microsoft word pages to be black, so I then have to use white text to see what I am typing, and have forgotten a few times to change it back to black before printing, so I get a blank page :S is there any way to make the pages white by default?
