Hmm where exactly do you see black borders?  like on what program?  In firefox there is a strange black line.  When a window is out of focus it is supposed to be dark gray with light gray text, and I am planning on fixing that for a new version.

 

Thanks for the feedback!

I see some downloads but people can't use it. You zipped the folder contents. How about making a .wba file for installation.

Hi,

Changed the extension to .wba and in the future I will be sure to do that. Sorry.  Thanks for letting me know.

Okay , yes, if your contrast on video card is like mine then programs not in focus the menu options go dark but the text is supposed to be light gray. I tried to fix it but I cannot find it in SkinStudio, yet.

Just click the title bar which is 'red' and the focus will light up the menu options in orange.

I hope this helps,

A little background on me.  I was an avid windowblinds user when I had windowsXP and then I got a new computer with windows 7 and did not use WB.  Suddenly recently I said hey I'm sick of drab windows themes and got WB again and applied my old FredIsMine skin and I love it.  The orange background is soothing to the eyes and regular use with different programs all day are fun again.

 

I plan to do a major overhaul using skinstudio to add more graphics/skins to areas that do not have them due to the new abilities of WB.  The new skin will be compatible with windows 7,8 and 10.

I will keep all that it has now, although I hope I find that dark menubar so I can make the text lightest grey.  I also hope to find a fix for the random dark bar on Firefox which disapears with a mouseover.

I will announce the new skin in a comment here.

Please if you apply this skin, try it for a day or two with regular activity to see if you like it as much as I do!

I am not tooting my own horn, but the more I use this skin the more I keep saying, "wow, I love this skin!" 

You see, I'd been using blah windows themes for years.  I used to use WB years ago.  The more different programs and prompts that I see, the more I say, hmm that came out nice.  The colors, the large text, and graphics are all enjoyable.  I hope that you feel the same way I do and that you will often come back to FredIsMine2017.

You need to use a file mananger to RENAME the file and change the zip to wba.

Hope this helps,

No Glenda. You need to open it in skinstudio and go to the top left where it say "File" On the dropdown menu click on "Make WBA package" Save that .WBA file and upload it.

You have been away from the game so to speak. If you ask questions here or PM me I or someone will help.

Would like to try this one but it won't open as WB, just a bunch of files downloaded.

OH MY GOD!

 

Thank you so much, and yes I have been away years.

I am in the middle of major upgrade to the skin.  I guess that I will wait until I finish and  then upload the fix as a .WBA file.  Oh my 453 downloads already, too.

DaveBax and everyone,

I took your advice and made it into a .WBA.  Please wait for it to be approved.  I just uploaded it on 5-15-17.  I fixed the black text on inactive TitleBar.  I added the wallpaper that was in the screenshot.

This skin should work on XP and Win2000 still.

I am working on a major update that will add new graphics images but the look will remain the same.  It will have a new name and I will announce it in a comment here.

Thanks to everyone who helped me!

The fixed version is now available, approved on May 16, 2017.

Please leave comments so that I can make it even better for the next MAJOR update that I am working on now.

In the version that I am working on now, the right click menu has a nice shadow now!

Thank you.  Fred is my soulmate, but passed away in 1980.

I am using this skin daily now, I love it.  I will update it soon for a final version with a new name.

I am not a WB critic, but I do know what looks good. Very nice job. Keep up the good work.
