This is excellent. A lot of color substyles to chose from. I'm going to try to find some wallpapers to match all those colors. Really appreciate all your hard work here.

Well done, SD!
Enjoying the skin a good deal. Thanks.

Thank you for this super skin, one of the best here so far!
Would it be possible to do this skin with clear and darker colors on the top and bottom bars like some longhorn skins (Sagorpirbd) do? Unfortunately, I seem to be too stupid to use the skin editor myself, otherwise I would do it myself.

What do you mean by clear and darker colors on top and bottom bars. Are you talking about the taskbar?
Post a picture of an example of what you mean.
I am working on alternate themes based on this as well. Vista is the next one and then I will be sharp edges afterwords.

I CAN'T WAIT for Vista. I know a lot of people disliked Vista, and there were a lot of legitimate problems with drivers and Windows promising it would work with your old equipment, and the very heavy handed way UAC worked.
Still, for me, Vista was the most beautiful Windows operating system they ever put out. Of course there was WindowBlinds which kind of made it moot, but still, on it's own, I really loved the look of Vista. So I can't wait to see what you do with it!

nice skin! but i wonder how do i activate "information pane" (that thing above status bar) in windows explorer?
i'm currently using Windows 11 Professional 22H2 (22621.ni_release.220506-1250) and WindowBlinds 11.01 (014 x64 - Windows 11 Edition)

a program called oldnewexplorer.

It will come eventually. Currently working on the next version update. That version will contain many bug fixes and changes to how some things work to better work with windows 10/11 systems. Especially High DPI support. I have more than 70% of the images in the theme supporting up to 175% scale now. That should work up to 4k monitors and not look blurry. Though anything higher may be out of the cards.. lol
If you want to keep tabs on new updates to this theme and my upcoming projects. I have a Deviantart account where I frequently post updates.

Fantastic skin, I love it!
Would it be possible to add that glass reflection texture on the taskbar like Windows 7 had?
For example: https://i.imgur.com/wdUZmxy.png

I don't plan on adding that as it's impossible for me to add to the window frames. They do not stretch right. So I scrapped that idea. I have other things I'm currently working on for this theme. Higher dpi support and squared off corners on everything as an alternate style.

I'm looking forward to the next updates.

I usually run my 4K monitor at 200%, because it gives nice sharp scaling on everything, instead of leaving images all blurry.

Wow! This is really great! Thank you for making so many substyles as well as making it work with the Windows 11 tabs features. It's really important that skinners start to incorporate their blinds to make it so labels on tabs are visible.
Thank you for all of your work!
