Thursday, June 18, 2009 by Huguitarro | Discussion: WindowBlinds

Hello, i have this issue, i installed WB6 after i reinstalled windows (video card problem), but now, when i install any ohter theme, my textboxes and some buttons appear very very small (I), and even if i zoom the page they look the same (II), and some buttons look that way too (III), but it's only when i put any other theme and even if i change it to another, but if i put back the windows XP oroginal one, they go back to the original form, and this only happends on IE8 and only on some text boxes and dome buttons... i already reinstalled IE8 and WB6 and i get the same result.... please help me!!

My husband had the same on his pc. We uninstalled IE8 and did a reboot and it was back to normal again. But on my pc it is no problem with IE8. And I know others that are having just this problems while others dont.

Worth testing.

 In IE8 click “Tools” | “Internet Options” | and choose the “Advanced” tab. or if IE is not open Right click on the desktop IE icon and click " Properties " then choose the “Advanced” tab

Scroll down one full scrolls worth and uncheck the “Enable visual styles on buttons and controls in webpages

Click “OK” – it will take a few seconds, then your browser should display correctly.  You should not have to close/reopen the browser for the change to take effect.

I had the problem on RC1 but I thought it was fixed on the final - as I can have it ticked now.

This issue should be addressed in the latest version of WindowBlinds.  You can update it through Impulse.
