ObjectDesktop and Windows 11 Developers Preview

Just my Experience

Friday, July 9, 2021 by RedneckDude | Discussion: Skinning

Just for shits and giggles, these are my findings so far on Windows 11.


CursorFX --- works.

DeskScapes --- works.  Multiple monitors even!

WindowFX --- works.  Except on context menus and start menu.

SpaceMonger --- works.

SoundPackager --- works.

Tiles --- Oh hell no.

I haven't tried any others, but stay tuned!

Icon packager an Object dock also works on 11. For icon packager through, the 3d live folder icons from vista/7/8/10 no longer skin properly due to the layout change to them.

Maybe these kind of threads may help Stardock in the getting ready for 11.

Well , as an icon developer, I would love to see Iconpackager updated to accommodate the newer operating systems. The icon developer portion of the software still uses the Windows XP template , it would sure be a lot more fun creating those packages using a more modern template that reflects the windows 11 format , and would probably display a lot more relevant icons.

I have about decided that I don't want 11 to look like 7.  I'm kinda liking it mostly as is.

It seems that Multiplicity isn't playing well with Windows 11.

DesktopX works just fine on Win 11.

Multiplicity work.

No problems with other software I run daily.

Carl, I had issues with Multiplicity KVM Pro.   Which version do you have?

Also KVM Pro. But I use it on/off, no permanent use.

I loaded Curtains and the titlebars don't paint. Fully transparent.
