I purchased WindowBlinds in hope to find a theme that looks just like windows 7 as if side by side, its not easy to tell the difference. The Diamond theme didn't really accomplish that for me. I tried looking all around wincustomize for the theme but couldnt find any. Does anyone know a theme that looks exactly like windows 7?

Windows 8 is still pretty new as far as Anyone making a bunch of theme as of yet. Windowblinds 8 just recently released and all, give it some time. I know of none here at the present time.

That's what I am looking for. A original Windows 7 theme for Windows 8. Still didn't buy WindowBlinds because I can't find Aero theme just like Windows 7 to use in Win8. When available, I will definitely buy.

There are two, Windows Aero and Modified Aero, both are in the WindowBlinds package. May not be exactly what you are looking for but they are close until another comes along.

yeah I saw them too. Didn't really liked them either. I saw Windows aero blue which looks ugly and the comments say it too.

Open the WB config window, scroll to the top and choose one of them then apply it. It is included with the others.

I still didn't bought WB, thats why I can't test. By the way, WB don't have a trial version, right?

 

 

edit: found the trial. I'm at work now. when I come home i'll test it. But still waiting a Win 7 theme.

the skins that came with windowsblinds aren't what were looking for(diamond). something more like an exact look of windows 7. not just the aero effect. better yet the theme from the windows 8 preview.

That theme has yet to be done as the 8.1 preview is too new. Give it some or do this. http://forums.wincustomize.com/447935/page/1/

Go to that link and click on the one in the OP. It will take you to where you will find a tutorial on how to build a WindowBlind. If you're interested. This way you can learn how to make one to suit your tastes.

Is there any ETA? Maybe next month, 2 months?

The making of a WB can take some time. Patience in this regard has its own rewards. Danioc is one of the best and well worth it.

I think there is a possibility (that it will come with a future windowblinds update or point release) Windowblinds tends to include surprise skins made by Dani- like with the latest point release "Modern" was added.good stuff  just in case someone missed spotting it.
and i he did aswell with windowblinds8 release Metro and Win8 ,another point release included- i cant remember which, Echo... also fingerlickin good'
