welli finally joined in the coolness of windows blinds and want to make my desktop a little creative. Once installing this app, just for grins i went ahead and select one of the themes that it comes with. when i apply the theme nothing really changes all that much

the start bar changes to a 2000 looks with a colored task bar. the start menu is just colored as well. only thing that changes for the theme is when i open firefox, the top bar has changed properly but thats it. ive tried many different themes but all the same.

i installed this app when I had the XP theme on. not sure where to go with this.

once i get home i can get a screen shot up for yall to show you what im talking about.

what version of WindowBlinds are you running. Not all themes will work with earlier versions of WB. Make sure you have the latest which is 4.50d

DL some themes from their site. Just look over the themes and what they will skin so you are happy with the result.

PK and myself both use WindowBlinds 4.xx

Just try different themes till ya get the one you really like. :)

the only time I had things like that happen are when I didnt reboot after installing WB.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
