WindowsBlinds 8

" can only be used with WindowsBlinds for Windows 8."

That would be WindowBlinds....one "s"

thanks LightStar

Yeah that is on the list to change

This will be my first WB skin  I own WB for win7 but never used it just bought the program but stayed with VS's for Windows 7

I will say this is a bit of a learning curve with WB from Window Style Builder. But I enjoy learning different ways to make the desktop look better.

I hope the boys and maybe Gals at stardock find a way to theme the ribbon in win8

Wow, I found SkinStudio to be far superior to Windows Style Builder. As a matter of fact, I could not even figure Windows Style Builder out at all. When I made .msstyles for XP I used SkinBuilder (I think that was its name) from TGTSoft.  It was a fantastic product to work with, you could actually click on the image in the interface to modify it and see what it looked like without applying the skin. It was really sad when TGTSoft went under.

But now I am really competent with WindowBlinds and SkinStudio and extremely happy with them both.

Quoting LightStar,
I am really competent with WindowBlinds and SkinStudio

Now there's a major understatement.

I just checked out your theme and it looks pretty neat so far.  I don't have the guts or patience to try and make skins myself.  It would to hazardous to my computers and myself in general.  So anything you do is a major big step over me.  I am looking forward to the finished project.
