Sorry for the delay; I don't have much time to work on this. I updated the file (the registry value is set/removed on installing/uninstalling the program and a Win10-compatible DWMAPI.DLL file is included) but there is nothing new… I just fixed a small problem where the color settings could be lost...

Right next to the 'Search all add-ons' box, there should be a button with a gear icon. Click on that and choose 'Install Add-on From File'. 4.) Open the win8-class...
