I'm a bit slow and old-fashioned, so please bear with me.
I've just downloaded WindowBlinds 10.74 for its 30-day-trial and actually one reason only. I do like to make my own themes for my Windows-7 (32-bit) computer, but was stuck to the "classic" Windows style because the Aero-themes would not allow me to change menu bar colors - no matter what I did, the menus stayed bright-blue which looked awful on my themes. I cannot find out how to change that.
So I thought I try a software and found WindowBlinds. I always want to check things first before I put anything permanently on my machine, so I installed it under ShadowDefender (means it'll be gone when my computer shuts down). I usually would have played around with it all day, then - if I liked it - restart the computer and install it for good. Unfortunately, it seems this good old method won't work with WindowBlinds as there's not much chance to test anything.
As I could see, WindowBlinds allows me to install its premade themes/skins and lets me alter them a bit. Works so far (I tried AeroWoods), except it forgot the taskbar, and of course, it left the menu bars in the Aero theme bright blue. Yuck.
Then it told me in order to alter more I should go to "SkinStudio". Clicking it brought me to a website promoting SkinStudio, but nothing to do there. Downloading it seems obsolete as I'm supposed to have downloaded it already with WindowBlinds. I'm probably just too dumb to find it - but where is it? I would at least like to try and do something before I decide on anything.
Now my questions - should I have downloaded SkinStudio right away and not WindowBlinds? After all, I want to make my own themes and not use someone else's. But then again, shouldn't SkinStudio already be there?
Or is it probably not the right software for me at all?
