Windows 10 visual style

Last Modified: 2015-10-28

I'm trying to add a little more "Look" to my vb.net application using visual studio 2015, I was wondering if there was a way to use some of the theme styles of windows 8/10; Are there any options or extensions in visual studio that can give more visual control over the forms/buttons/controls to create something similar to what you can find in windows 8 or 10?

I just find the current options very limited, such as background color/image or things like that...

I did find and install this http://blogs.msdn.com/b/somasegar/archive/2015/07/29/building-apps-for-windows-10-with-visual-studio-2015.aspx but I think it can only be used for online apps?

Thank you
