Dear Stardock Object Desktop staff: Now that the Windows 10 OS has finally settled in as the primary version going forward for a while, and you've finally gotten to updating WindowBlinds, and given us a few Win10-targeted customizers, I'm wondering if we might start to see some updates to some of the other classic OD apps, or new customization apps that perform some of their functions, such as:   Using Icon packagfes?DesktopX widgets and ObjectBar bars?An updated Soundpacka...

I am enjoying Windows 10 and really like the options that Start10 provides.  Its really nice to be able to see my real All Programs list again.   There is one change that Start10 makes that I don't like so well and that is the right click on start button now produces a Start10 abbreviated menu only.  I've looked in Settings for Start10 to see if that can be rest there and haven't found anything. Can you please help me find a way to have the Windows 10 right cl...

I have a question. In Multiplicity 3 KVM Pro, I see an option to allow a secondary to control KVM PCs (requires activation). I tried my serial and it told me it was being used on another PC, so, what is the point?   Second question. I have licenses for Multiplicity KVM Pro, and Multiplicity KVM. Can I use the MP KVM license on the secondary? To control KVM PCs?

Hey guys, quick question. I'm thinking about just purchasing Windowblinds (since my ODNT subscription expired and I can't see spending $50 when I use only one of the programs now). Will there be any issues with my current install? Thanks.

My Object Desktop subscription should be up to date but I'm not seeing anything when I fire up Object Desktop Manager. Can anyone help or point me in the right direction? Thanks

Just curious. Seeing as Microsoft will have a new Windows OS by the end of the year, Windows 10, I was wondering if there were any new plans for Object Desktop since Windows 10 won't focus so much on the "Metro" style UI as much as it did before. I am interested in renewing my Object Desktop Subscription and would like to know if there is something in the works.   Thank you.

I'm trying to use Start8tweak to unload Start8 which was the prescribed method in the past. Now, when you try to launch it, it just opens .  I'm already running the latest version (1.47).

Just curious. I've been away from things the last year or so, due to family issues and being pretty sick myself, and so just now decided to renew my Object Desktop and Wincustomize subscriptions. The wincustomize subscription renewal completed immediately, with no issues, but I got some sort of error / informational message from the Object Desktop renewal. Don't remember the text of the error offhand, it was something like, 'we'll be in contact', or words to that effect...

Hello all, I'm using WB8/SKS8 and I'm having a hard time tracking down some rogue Tahoma fonts. They're in the right click popups menus in Firefox, the message boxes, tooltips, and OD popup flyout menus. I've tried tracking down and changing all the "OS Default Fonts" I could find, but these ones are eluding me. I've already changed all the skin defined fonts and system defined fonts in the Fonts section, but these don't seem to be affected. I'm editing the Lantana sk...

Hey guys. I can't get Theme Manager to load anything other than Aero Midnight on XP or Vista.   I also can't get MyColors to install on either.   What's up?   I realize that XP is no longer supported, but these programs should work on XP. I hate that I bought a bunch of MyColors themes and can't use them.   When I try to install MyColors, it acts like it's installing, until I see the "downloading MyColors" screen, then the window cl...
