How to safely try new skin

Without losing my current preset

Monday, July 26, 2021 by EKucera | Discussion: WindowBlinds

Hello,

I  am currently running Win XP Retro, heavily customized and saved with a preset.

What will happen to it if I run AeroExecutive.wba - and maybe don't like it - will my saved preset still be there if I then re-run WinXPRetro.wba?

Or is there a better way that someone can suggest?

Thanks and regards  Emil

Yes, it should be as long as you saved the preset.

 

Every preset I ever saved remains useable through multiple skin changes.

Hello Jim,

Maybe I am at loss or getting to old, how do you save a WBA preset? Skinstudios substyles?

Thank you,

Nothing that special, just that it took a lot of trial an error to get the colors the way I wanted. Now that you have assured me I won't lose the preset, I should be ok. Will report on any success or yell for help in case of failure Thanks and regards, Emil

Sorry to be late, been a bit sick lately.

 

Yes, Jazlan, you can save a preset.  Thanks for answering bobj420.
