Windows Design Overwriting MM Design

Post by DavidZweistein »

Hi,
I am using Media Monkey with Windows 8, and I have the problem that when I set in the Windows Aero Design the Windows color to any color, that the taskbar changes color with the windows design, when the MM Windows is active:

The problem is when I want a black window color, I cant read the taskbar anymore...

Putting new designs in MM and ticking/unticking the "overwrite design with windows standard" doesnt change anything.

I know its sort of a minor problem :D, but still it would be nice to either fix this, or change the font color, something that i can still read it.


Thanks anyways!

David

What I mean is, there isn't an immediate solution. It's a bug that should be addressed in a future release.

[bug#10536] Windows Design Overwriting MM Design

Post by DavidZweistein »

Hi,
when Media Monkey is used with Windows 8, the "Windows Aero Design" overwrites the MediaMonkey Design with the "Window Color" that choosen. This is a problem when the window color is black, because then the letter of the taskbar cannot be read anymore:

Putting new designs in MM and ticking/unticking the "overwrite design with windows standard" doesnt change anything.

I hope this is an easy-to-fix bug and will be fixed for the next MM Version!

(If it isnt a bug, please write me how to change it!)

Thanks!

David

I can confirm this,
all text in Aero areas (frame ,AeroPlayer) displays in black ,on Win 7 withe a withe background shadow,

but in Win 8, MS reduce the use of Aero style,and no withe aero shadow is used for text!

(Aero text color can't be change via skinning) :-?
