This week's question we'll focus on something that doesn't get talked about as much.......and that would be icons. We have a couple of different categories for icons here on WinCustomize. Icon packs for use with IconPackager Icon category for general icon uploads. ObjectDock icons for icons that are meant to be used with OD.We have been curious on how the community uses icons in their desktop setups. Do you change the entire icon set with IconPackager, or do you just change individual i...

This week's community question is focusing on desktop skinning, WindowBlinds in particular! There are so many WindowBlinds skins available and I probably couldn't describe all the styles and colors available.  I personally like more of a minimal style skin, but more "wild" skins have also been popular. If you have no preference that's certainly great, but I wanted to put out the question to our community.  Do you prefer more minimal type skins, more "wild" designs, or does it mat...

I'm working on types of content people like and want more of on WinCustomize. Something I'm looking at now is triggered .dreams for DeskScapes. A triggered .dream is basically an animated wallpapers that changes at a designed point. Blissful Dream was always one of my favorites. So my question to the community is do you use any triggered .dreams? If so, what specifically do you like and what themes would you like to see. For example, .dreams that switch from day to night. If you ha...

Greetings everyone, I hope everybody is safe and healthy. These are difficult times we are facing. Please follow the advice of the noted philosopher Samuel L Jackson and Stay the F*ck At Home! Be safe, everybody! I've attempted to install the Oranda Cursor set which was released many, many years ago with only bad luck. Will it be updated to have compatibility with the upcoming release of the new Cursor program?

Well, January 2020 I guess is when Microsoft stops support for Windows 7. I was thinking of doing WB skins just for Windows 10, but I thought I would ask site users for their opinion first. Do you think I should continue to design for Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, or just Windows 10? I would really appreciate your input, and thanks in advance!
Lots of exciting things happening this year.   Stardock is actively hiring software developers to begin revamping all of Object Desktop.  You will begin to see the changes starting in mid November as new and old things alike start being added. A few things on our plate include: Updating SoundPackager.  The sounds in Windows 10 are a bit annoying.  Stardock has a lot of audio talent here that we plan to use to revamp the sound packages that it includes as well as...

I'm on Win10 Pro 1803. The following issue has been present for some time, since at least WB version 10.7.4, perhaps 10.65.  A recent update to Reader DC has made the issue worse - the title bar had been missing but the menu bar & window controls had been visible making it usable if funny looking until the recent Adobe update.  Just decided to update to 10.8.0 to see if the issue would go away but it hasn't.  The issue occurs despite total exclusion (Do Not Skin) of AcroRd3...

Yesterday I uploaded a rainmeter skin that had a few mistakes and didn't work. I fixed the issue and uploaded an update. The first upload I asked an admin to remove because that one doesn't work properly. The one that does work has a 3 star rating and that one does work. Its not the rating that's an issue. Its just to identify the working one. Can someone fix this please.

Title describes it.  Settings dialogs have always had native Win borders until recent 'upgrade' to 1803.  Now they're getting skinned frames. Others seeing this? Thx.

There are many ways to get this done, but today I wanted to write up a quick intro guide for new users who want to get started wit...
