Thanks for the info on high res monitors working better with deskscapes and resizing.
My monitors are maxed at 1920 x 1080 and that is where they will stay.
Have no plans to upgrade to a higher res monitor.
I find that Windows Blinds does a great job of skinning Windows.
Winstep also works well.
There are other animated wallpaper programs that have the same result as deskscapes so I do not fault deskscapes.
Beautiful Space animated works OK as wallpaper but has compatibility issues for the settings as a screen saver in Windows 8.1
As for vision, I see fine. There are some problems with personalization parameters. Like resizing the explorer fonts to very large makes a mess of everything. There should have been some fine tuning about that. If explorer fonts are made larger, the spacing should be automatically increased, but they are not and fonts all get crushed together. It's not very well thought out.
