Metro Adaptive Skin for Classic Shell by AlucardDH Metro Adaptive Skin for Classic Shell by AlucardDH
Skin for Classic Shell

The default Metro theme of Classic Shell is one color only, has no transparency and is not really beautiful so i decided to make a skin that fits my needs.

Classic shell is available here : [link]

How to install this skin :
1) Download the zip file
2) Extract this file to c:\Program files\Classic Shell\Skins
3) Right click on Start Button > Parameters
4) Select the skin MetroAdaptive in Skin Tab
5) Apply and enjoy :)

Hello there.
Apparently, this skin makes the Start Menu just a bit too big ( It hits the bottom of my 1377x768 screen, )
There is no "Small Icons" option in the Settings of this skin, which is very useful for people who needs to save space. Or, you can just have another option to trim down the size of the Start Menu. Either one would satisfy me.
So, may you fix this problem?

it looks very good :) but  plum3r and the others are right. If you make the spread like the original Metro i think this would be the best skin period :)

Great work!

The layout seams to spread too much though. The original Classic menue Metro is pretty much right on spot in terms of layout but it misses few options (see list below)

BG Color editable
Selected item bg color editable
Font type/color editable
Transparency/Alpha editable
Menu with or without icons

My 5 cents;-)

The thought is good, but the layout seams to spread the content too much. Wish-list:

BG color editable
Transparency editable
Font editable
With or without Icons menus

Squeeze these items in the code and it is going to be a killer;-)

Otherwise contiue with the good work
