Stardock announces v1.1 for Curtains, the popular Windows customization app
The v1.1 beta for all Curtains and Object Desktop users is available now

Stardock released a v1.1 beta for Curtains today, its popular customization tool that allows users to apply new styles along the lines of Dark and Light Modes to Windows® 10. 

Curtains

Taking advantage of the groundwork built to support light and dark mode, Curtains includes several new styles including Crystal, Sky, and Midnight mode that enhance the look and feel of the Windows UI along with apps that already support light and dark mode. 

Curtains v1.1 Beta Features:

  • New options for explorer background transparency and blur effects (see screenshot above!)
  • New option to extend title bar into top of ribbon in explorer windows
  • Increased style application speed
  • Quality of life adjustments

To see a complete beta change log and to participate in our feedback thread, go here. The full release of v1.1 is coming soon. Enjoy the beta!

I like the controls you put in there for the Explorer window opacity and blur.  I'm normally not a fan of transparency behind text windows, but I can come up with a combination there I can work with and like.

After I installed this latest beta when the update completed Curtains automatically applied a skin.  Is that normal behavior?  Can that be configured?

Love the transparent background. It's buried pretty deep.

Mind showing me where it at. Been spending sometime looking for it. But I fail to find it.

Thank you,

It would be my honor, good sir.    [Windows] tab / [Advanced Properties] Button  about 2/3rds of the way down the Advanced properties window - "Explorer background blur mode".  It's a per-skin setting.

-Talked about this A LONG time... -If you can do it for Curtains, surely you can do it for WindowBlinds.

That Explorer Blur looks really nice, but the setting shouldn't be buried so deep in my opinion.

Anyway, looking very much forward to Curtains 1.1 Final.

Does anyone have a copy of that Chicago theme?

I can't find it anywhere. Not here, and also not on Danilo Oliveira personal site, and also not on his deviantart page either.

Well, according to the Object Desktop Manager app I installed the beta for version 1.1 last night but Curtain's info screen tells me I have version 1.01. The Explorer blur option is not shown in the Advanced Properties area. I have rebooted the rig.

Mine says Version 1.1Beta 1. Try downloading it from your StarDock account.

thanks for the reply, ALMonty. I tried to do just that but it isn't listed on my Stardock account page for some reason. Neither is the Oranda Cursor Suite.

For anyone who still looking for the Explorer background transparency settings. Its under each individual style. You will need to edit it yourself to have it turn on and adjust it to your liking. Hope the screenshot below will help.

Thank you,

I stand corrected. The beta is listed. If Curtains was listed there before, I overlooked it. My apologies to everyone involved.
