WinCustomize Help Center

Welcome to the WinCustomize Help Center!

Here you'll find links to site, software and community information that will hopefully make your time here at WinCustomize easier and get you started skinning as quickly as possible.

If you have any questions that aren't covered here, either e-mail us or drop by the forums.



WindowBlinds, IconPackager, DeskScapes... the list goes on. There is a lot of software out there in the skinning world, and it can be a bit confusing. Below are a few of the most popular skinning tools. Click on any of them to get a more detailed description and some helpful links.


It's one thing to read a manual on how to use a piece of software, and something entirely different to have a step-by-step walkthrough detailing exactly what to click and where. Skinning tools, especially those used to create skins are incredibly complex and nothing short of a detailed tutorial is going to help.

If you are looking for more tutorials, check out the Tutorials Category on the WC Wiki.


WinCustomize, at its core, is a community of people from around the globe who want to get the most out of their Windows experience. We play host to some of the most talented digital artists in the world, and can boast a vibrant and active forum community. Below are a few key links for people new to the site and community. We hope they help you get the most out of the site.


No matter how good the tutorials are, or how stable a piece of software is, at some point you're going to find yourself in need of technical support. Here is some helpful support information for when things go wrong.

And remember, you can almost always find someone on Stardock on

Essential Articles

Sometimes a member of the community writes something that we consider to be absolutely essential reading for anyone in the skinning community. These articles typically explain some important topics that are otherwise overlooked.

This section will be periodically updated as new Essential Articles are written.

Sometimes there are helpful links that just don't fit in any of the previous categories. When that happens, we'll add them to this space here at the bottom of the help page.
