I know Microsoft apparently replaced all the existing Windows Vista/7 themes but look at this screenshot. It has the Windows Basic theme in the sub windows of IcoFX. :)

Yes it is. There is also a way to hack it, to bring it back :p

The thing is... Aero basic is... well... too basic...

Well why did they bother restricting access to the themes if they are not going to properly remove the them?

Cool i guess. :) Maybe aero glass theme is also still available.

Easier probably, and 99% of Win 8 users wouldn't have a clue it was even there, let alone want to enable it

It's more of a bug than a feature really. I think MDI child windows in general have the Windows basic theme in Windows 8.

Still that means they haven't removed the theme.

Maybe but they could surely notice that part of the application is themed differently and might be curious on how to enable it.

Doubt it, the majority of PC users just accept how windows is set up as default, maybe change the wallpaper at most

It was MASSIVE originally but sized it down, but it does not matter as it still proves the basic theme is there :)

Sorry to bump this post but, I noticed when my graphics drivers were installing, all my windows switched to basic them for a split second. Does anyone know if Windows Basic theme can be enabled somehow?

Better question, why has Microsoft not genuinely killed off classic theme yet? Is someone at Microsoft whacking off instead of doing their job?

I might try copying the basic theme from Windows 7 over to 8 and see if it will work.
