Windows Classic

Where Are Texture and Background Buttons?

In the WindowBlinds 8 Configuration window, all the Window Styles have Style, Color, Texture, and Background configuration buttons.  However, Windows Classic, when clicked, displays only the Style and Color buttons.  The Texture and Background buttons are missing.

Windows Classic is precisely the Window Style I need to modify.  This looks like a bug to me.  Is this problem going to be fixed sometime soon?  If not, is there a workaround for it?

I don't think that's a bug, RetiredEngineer. My WB lacks that as well.

I think that it would be best to get an answer from Support. Maybe Jeff Bargmann will see this and reply, or one of the skinners.

Last I recall "Windows Classic" is essentially Vanilla Windows with Windowblinds 'unloaded' .... which would mean WB options wouldn't apply.

If I'm wrong then Neil will be bound to throw rocks at me or something...

Gentlemen:

Thank-you for your insights.  I'd like to pose one more question.

My objective is to make the Windows Classic taskbar transparent.  Can this be accomplished with Skin Studio?  Or is it impossible, because I don't possess all of the Windows Classic shell "source code" from Skin Studio?

Not that I know of because as you said you can't bring it into sks.

I think you're correct as well.
