Description: a windowblinds skin for 7, Vista and XP

Requirements: Windowblind 6.2, powered by 7 version

Characteristic: dark, minimalistic and every day use skin

Special: XP users are required to use the large taskbar.


Folks, I have been busting my butt for a quite long time when working on this one. Yes, this is a very simple but yet a very fine skin with reference to be comfortable in the long term using.

I am sincerely hoping you could like it and really use for the long time. If so, that makes me absolutely happy bearing in mind that a lot of effort has been put into this skin.

Many thanks for every comment or thought.

Yours
Tom

Hello!
I would like to say that this theme is excellent!
But there is a problem with the "Per Pixel Frames" (as with many other themes).
and so to remove the 'Gap' of windows just to go in windowBlinds > Settings and finally tick the box  "Do not use Per Pixel Frames even if the skin supplies them"
his works, but I do not know if other things are disabled, but I still noticed nothing.

Anyway good job!

* I'm also doing a Sub-Style of 7zone, I'm on vista and I use the "Iconized Taskbar" and large icons in the "Quick Launch bar" so I still have to make adjustments so that everything is well presented Meow :3 

If its poses no problem I would add either a link here to a direct download, are I upload on my profile and I also put the link here, according to the acceptance of the author. :D (Big Grin)

Maybe it's time for a 7zone update?

It's still the greatest WB skin ever. I try them all, but always come back to this one :)

Windowblinds 8 is out. Any chance you might port this theme? Please!

My new favorite!! I love it!
But sometimes I hate Deviantart (or I just don't get it) - searched for this theme for 3 days now since I had to re-install Windows and didn't remember the name...and I couldn' find it by browsing the Windowblinds skins here...
I'm so glad that I now found it again!
Thanks Tom for this great theme!

Wow, a WindowBlinds theme that isn't a chunky over-worked mess. Nice!

Could you possibly do a port of this as a Visual Style? its a beautiful theme. (maybe if you dont know how you could ask someone else to?)

This is beyond perfect. Some themes may look good at first sight but lack details here and there thus eventually force you quit using them in daily life, but not this theme. Kudos!

P.S. but I really want an alternative style with thinner window borders. I wonder if you could be so kind to make the dream come true? :love:

this is very impressive! i might have to buy windowblinds now :)

my only complaints have to do with aero peek. the peek borders are very strange. and things would be much better if the glare/stripes in the aero weren't there. otherwise, this is one of the nicest dark-framed themes i've seen for windows 7!

i've been using this for about a month now and have two bugs to report.

1. in the start menu, there is a piece missing when you use the search function.

2. on some apps, going full-screen messes things up. a gap appears between the menu and the title bar.

I get your point. The reason I have been doing windowblinds skins is the huge options it gives me compared to resource hacking to make a visual style :D
