Hi!

Just a quick question. The size of the Show Desktop button has apparently been changed in Windows 8.1.

When I am using the Win8 skin, this results in the following:

1) The skinned texture does not match the new size of the button, resulting in an overlap, as evident from the image below:

2) I use two monitors. The Show Desktop button on the second monitor is now completely dysfunctional, yet it is still displayed.

Thing is, I really dislike that behavior, introduced in Windows 8.1. I'd like the old Show Desktop button, a wider one (like back on Windows 7/8), which works on all displays and not just the primary one. Is it possible to implement this in Start8/WindowBlinds? and if not, is it possible to fix the skin overlap issue?

Thanks for your time and hard work!
