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.

I just renewed my OD sub. In my account there are two ObjectDesktop subs listed with two different product keys. I'm kinda hoping I didn't renew the wrong one. Please enlighten me.

Hi, it would e a nice feature to be able to hide the icon-text when in tile mode in Win7 or Modern Startmenu. That way Start 10 should also resize the menu.

He was kind enough to take the time to answer some questions so we could get to know him a little bit more.   Can you tell us a bit about yourself and how you got involved in “skinning&rd...
