Hi All,

Hope I posted this in the correct place... I am new to the Stardock thing and really seem to like it so far... I had question regarding a skin that doesn't seem to operate correctly, I have loaded downloaded several skins from wincustomizer website and all seem to have loaded fine. I notice at the top cornrer of this particular skin where the page arrow keys are located (Left Top) that no matter what I do the skin won"t cover the background and it is constantly sort of blue color behind the keys. Can anyone explain how to get the skin to operate correctly somehow? I have removed and re-installed Stardock and this skin and the problem persists. When I run WEI the problem stops but then comes back when it has finished running.

I am also having a problem trying to view files in My Document's and always get WB4 in a widow or a list of files...

I am running Windows 7 home premium edition  and have a WEI of 4.1 on the low end if that will help... 

 

Thank you in advance,

KC-

Disturbedcomputer, Sorry for the confusion... what I mean by the home page is the page (browser) that is opened once you click Internet Explorer and has the blue navigation keys at the top to go through the pages similar to those in your pics accept on the home screen. If you look at the photo I posted you can see some yellow behind the arrow keys in the furthest top, left corner. The yellow there is my desktop gadget coming through the background.

 

Rosco_P, Thanks...

Quoting Disturbedcomputer,
1) She didn't make any Graphic for that part

0r

2) Did not name it correctly

or

3) Something else

1. I did

2. I did

3. Bingo! I designed it that way. What you see there are bullet holes (emphasis on 'holes'), so you see your background through them until they become active.

What I think knotreeltight is seeing is the transparency I used behind the buttons showing through in IE9.

I designed this skin before IE9 was out, so it will not look right, the default transparent buttons make it look like crap.

 ...it needs updating.

Xiandi, You hit it on the head!!! I really like this skin and you do excellent work!!! The bit in the photo is exactly what I've been trying to repair if it were possible. I was not sure if it was my machine or the WindowBlind skin itself.

Thank you for the help...

Please let us know if you get this one updated...
