WindowBlinds 10.71
Change, customise and theme just about every aspect of your user-interface

If you’re one of the many people who like to customise your desktop, you’ll feel somewhat naked when you sit in front of vanilla version of Windows, when you first purchase or use a PC at work. To be fair, Windows 7 offers a fair better visual experience than previous editions. As long as your graphics card is capable of powering the Aero theme, this is a good enough option for most users.

However, you can go much further with the Windows operating system. Just about every element of the desktop can be configured, other than the usual components such as the wallpaper, fonts and size of your icons. The only problem is that advanced tweaking of your interface is not encourage by Microsoft, apart from official themes you can download from the Microsoft website.

WindowBlinds goes much further than downloading a theme. It puts you in full control over your own customisation. On a basic level, you can just download a theme and install. There are hundreds of pre-designed themes which might suit your requirements. Alternatively, download a theme and customise this to your requirements. You can also create a theme from scratch if you know what you are doing.

WindowBlinds 10.71 contains these changes/fixes (see history for more):

Fixed - Task Manager buttons not painting until mouseover (Nvidia)
Fixed - GeForce Experience crashing during Google log-in
Fixed - Screen corruption in GeForce Experience
Fixed - Taskbar failed to skin in Insider Build for Fall Creators update
Fixed - Crashes in Insider Build for Fall Creators update
Fixed - Some Modern apps were unskinned but should have been
Chrome on Win8 excluded from being skinned (due to Chrome incompatibilities)
Added option to clear settings on uninstall

Verdict:

Powerful desktop and theme customisation tool that will enable you to alter and update just about every aspect of your user-interface

Great Program -but Win 7/8 ONLY...

Posted by: Michael Winbush, 20 June 2013 03:52

Just a couple of points - WindowBlinds 8 doesn't work on the older OS like XP or Vista (you'll have to find a copy of WindowBlinds 7 for that...) Also, the price for the software is now only $9.99 (or $6.99 if you've previously registered a version of the program...)

Hi Michael, yes we changed the system requirements to reflect the move to 7/8 only. We didn't change the price though - updated!

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
