Did you solve the problem of the menus getting cut off? Instead of File, is see Fi..., etc...

Please post for us all if you found a solution...

Thanks - Ben

Ben -

I was under the impression from MGiff that my first update had fixed that & I've not changed anything with those ToolBars that look like Menus with any of the subsequent updates. I don't see it here, but I think it only affects XP. Look in SKS at the Content Margins for Controls\Menus\Bar items - toolbar like and set them all to zero. Let me know if that fixes it for you.

And thanks for letting me know.

A little too dark for me, but I see how it could appeal to some Still cool!

Old Sapphire - behold the beauty of gamma (wish that would hold thru the ObjectBar import!). Thanks for everyone's comments & suggestions.

I love this skin, but how do I get to the sub skins that are in color?!?!?!

Teapots -

In WB Config, you'll see a text item (link) within the skin preview which reads "Change skin color". Click that and a dialog will open where you can enable colorizing and select both the color and the intensity.

And thanks for all the kind comments. Please let me know if you run into any anomalies.

Thanks very much to all for the positive comments.

The entire skin can be colorized quite easily using SkinStudio if desired. Can also use WB's gamma setting to either lighten or darken it.

Once I learn a little more, I plan to add ToolBar icons & animations, but that may be awhile.

I have a couple of other skins in progress that are quite different - hope to have them finished & posted soon.

Thanks again.

I'm in love, I love minimalistic skins. You really should have entered this in the olympics. Look at the ipod above and maybe be inspired to do it in colors??? LOL If not I can do it myself. Great skin, just great, keep them coming!!

Nice work. However, I find nothing but gray and white tiring to the eyes in a short time. That is a vision thing, though. My eyes are sensitive to light and this seems "glarey" to me.

Really my kind of skin_-_-_Works for me quite well . Thanks for working it up and sharing it with us .

Nice skin. I like the narrow taskbar, and I liked the detail on the wide one. I set this skin as the per application skin for PSP (previously I had that application excluded). Its nice, simple, unobtrusive, and very "crisp". Thanks!

Hobbes - me an email & I'll send it to you direct.

Lorania - in general, I agree about grey, but I developed & use this for work, to kind of get the OS skin *out of the way* while still being more pleasing to use than Windows Classic. To each his/her own.

DigitalCHET - thanks for your comments. Like any skin, this remains a work in progress & some additional color accents are very possible with future updates.

I tried to download it but a message popped up saying I downloaded 50MB of files without subscribing so I can't get this skin. It looks really cool from the preview and I would love to have it on my desktop but, alas, I am denied.

Comment #35 Friday, March 05, 2004 7:38 AM
You shouldn't. It's quite obvious this skin wasn't created for you, Lorania. Dave kindly shared with us a skin which pleased him, not you.

While it is rather grey, it does look quite nice and minimalistic and could easily grow on me.
With a little splash of colour perhaps and a bit of tweaking this could easily have entered the GUI Olympics in the minimalistic category.
Oh well...

Nice work though.

Grey suxx - besides the whole skin looks pretty flat. Tell me one reason why I should use THIS instead of turning Windowblinds off and using the normal Windows style again?
Comment #37 Sunday, February 19, 2006 5:32 PM
good minimal skin.
Comment #38 Sunday, February 19, 2006 2:15 PM

An excellent and refreshing skin.
Comment #40 Sunday, February 19, 2006 12:17 PM
Oh this is beautiful. Everything I love in a skin, simple, clean, streamlined. Love the 4 different versions too, though it makes it hard to choose which one to use. I've been leaning toward the flat version myself. Just perfect, Thank you!
