Top 9 C++ Customization Projects

  • TranslucentTB

    A lightweight utility that makes the Windows taskbar translucent/transparent.

    Project mention: I had to do it. | /r/pcmasterrace | 2023-06-02

    Take a look at TranslucentTB. It makes your taskbar see through. Your icons are still there like normal, but the white bar itself is gone. This makes any desktop look way better imo.

  • SecureUxTheme

    🎨 A secure boot compatible in-memory UxTheme patcher

    Project mention: Windows 11 dark theme is too dark! | /r/Windows11 | 2023-05-31

    None of it is user friendly, but if you can follow directions you can be up and running in 30 minutes. I recommend SecureUxTheme which patches the necessary files in memory.
