Explorer, notepad++, scite

When I use a skin that changes explorer, notepad++ and Scite get all messed up on the toolbar / menus. 

Adding them to exceptions did not fix the issue.

Adding explorer exception did not fix the issue.

Resolved by using a skin that either makes explorer similar to original colors, or does not skin it at all.

 

This is very disappointing, I wanted the system menu's to be skinned.

I hope I'm doing it wrong....

After adding to the "do not skin" list, did you choose a skin to use or use "disabled?

 

Disabled uses a 98 looking skin, or you can use a different skin for that app.

Quoting doortech1,

Tried both ways and with several themes, nothing happens.

OK I did what I should have done in the first place, killed explorer and started it again.

Now it's skinned white like the theme I set it to.

But not skinning explorer is not OK, it's the whole point of using windowblinds.

 

It is good to see some affect from using the exceptions.  Notepad and Scite are colored properly, but the task bar and start menu are blinding.

By unloading windows blinds and loading different themes, I found that some themes override exceptions, and once that happens, all further applied themes also override the exception list.  

Themes that broke exception for notepad++:

  • Cressida
  • Acronic
  • Azurelight
  • Nightlight
  • Something blue

Themes that did not break exception:

  • Alpha Nebula
  • Blue Steel

Is this a known bug?
