Without the Internet? We'd all be having a life.

Yokel does it again...You just keep getting better..One small problen though..With Kernow and this one the fox sidebar background gets lighter near the top.  It's a distinctive line about 3/4 up.  Whaticall does not do this..

Kesroesweyth in the Cornish language means internet, I wander what we would all being doing now if there was no internet?

Probably living life to the fullest.

Thanks for this, another wonderful creation.

Thank you for the comment AlanWade.

scharchuk & natas2 - I think you could be right, although I must confess I would be speechless!

grump11- I do not use the default theme for Firefox, (Black Stratini theme & Stylish user styles) but I tried the the default theme with the 3 blinds you mention, but nothing untoward shows up with the sidebar background on my computer. Must be one of those anomalies that makes computing an inexact science, & keeps us entertained trying to find a workaround!

This skin is beautiful, thank you very much...

You are right, there is no end to this endeavor.  I've had this problem with other blinds in the past, perhaps it's just a win7[64].,thing. I do find it odd that the problem only just showed up in your last 2 blinds.  A man with your talents is sure to figure it out.  In the meantime thank-you for your artistry.

Now that is pickin barley, awesome work

Thank you for the comments, chr1s65 & Ausvet.

grump11 - I have worked out the problem, I changed the gradients in the toolbar image, which is used by the fox sidebar background, as I said, I do not use the default theme or the sidebar, so did not pick it up, I will update the last 2 blinds.

S  J N - I am afraid I do not know the reason the start button should appear below the taskbar, by design it is meant to have approximately a guarter above the bar.

Ah, I knew you could do it, heat wave and all.

Could it be my res? 1600 X 900.

S J N - I made the blind on my PC with a 1280 X 1024 resolution display, & tested it on our 1280 X 800 laptop, where it works OK. I must confess I can not think of a reason why this should happen, when I move the task bar to the four sides of the screen, the the start button remains to have a part of it above the bar, as it should be.

A very sweet blind.  One of the few dark blinds I have found to be useable because of dark fonts on dark backgrounds (a Windows shortcoming).  However, when I open Windows Explorer it looks like below.  Is this a blind characteristic or it something in my Windows XP setup, and if so how can I fix it.

Thank you for your comment, Snap Hook.

Regarding your Explorer Background, it is definitely not meant to appear like that, I think I have found the problem. Can you check in the WindowBlinds config. that the correct substyle has been applied, ( on the bottom bar, "3 styles" ) if the XP style is not highlighted, apply it.

If the XP style is applied go to the blind folder ( shared documents/ Stardock/ window blinds/ Kesroesweyth ). & find the file TaskBandGroupBack.bmp & delete it, & re-apply the blind this should solve problem.

The problem is caused by a bug in WindowBlinds which applies this image into the Explorer background automatically if you do not replace it. I do not replace the image in the XP substyle as it covers up the shell icons. I also delete this image from the skin folder, but obviously my brain was not in gear & I forgot to do so.

I hope this solves the problem.

The XP version was applied and the deletion of taskbandgroupback.bmp resolved the problem.  Many thanks for some great work.
