I am using windows 10 home and I am having a problem with the colors with the preview look  colors and the colors

showing up when I install the windowblind on my desktop, is there a way to correct the problem without

uninstalling and reinstalling wincustomize, any help would be greatly appreciated

Hello,

Sorry to hear you having issues. Don't get what the problem you're facing. Could you post some screenshots to help us understand the problem.

Thanks

I think he means that the colors in the preview does not match with the colors after the wb is applied.

I hate to say this but I don't know how to take a screen shot of my desktop, as to the problem and this happens on every windowblind, in the preview window the color of the start button color is blue but after installing the windowblind the start button color is now yellow, I hope this helps

Thanks

Scott

Hello,

Did you set any color modification? Please set it back to none.

To make a screenshot you can simply use a program that come with Windows 10 : Snipping Tool. Its really a simple tool to use but if you need some guide on how to use it. There are tutorial on how to use on Youtube such as : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeOglvucFK4

Thank you,

I don't seem to be able to use the snipping tool correctly but the items you highlighted in your reply are the same ones I have the same settings as you have

sorry for being such a pain

Do you use Start10?  Did you use that to change the start button?

It is easier to see the problem if you can make a screenshot. Is the problem only on Start buttons? Or all over? Let say if you apply Win8 from Stardock. It has a blue taskbar and blue active frame. Will those items also change to yellow after apply the theme?

Do you have dual monitors setups? Is the colors difference between those two monitors?

Thank you,

basj, not sure that my reply got posted properly so I'll try again. I do not have dual monitors

no matter which WB I install the color behind the start button is grey

You may have a Texture selected which would modify all WB themes.  Your Textures should be none:

 

 

Also Start10 should look like this:

 

 

If you match here then the easiest first try at a fix would be:

 

1.  Open WindowBlinds and set the theme to Default and reboot.

2.  Go to your Stardock My Downloads and download and run the latest WB setup and reboot.

3.  Try to apply a WB theme and see if problem is gone.

So the problem only on Start button? All the other element such as window frames, Start Menu etc etc is colored correctly?

Thank you,

The start button and other button's do not change colors as the preview picture shows but some do change as they should but my other problem is that after clicking on the start button the back of the icons is a grey color and not the changed color which should happen when a new windowblind is installed.

I am sorry that I can't explain it better

how do you recolor a WB

The easiest way is to use WindowBlinds modification.   Some themes recolor nicely that way.  Just Open WindowBlinds and choose Modify Style (current theme).  Go ahead and try it out you can always reset to the default.

More intensive modifications require SkinStudio which is beyond my skills.

 

I have a question what fixed the problem you were having?
