WindowBlinds version 8 brings a couple new features that include a brand new interface, better support for Windows 8, and SkinStudio, a theme designer that lets users create their own customizations.

There are four main aspects of your windows that you can modify: style, color, texture, and background. Styles are preset schemes to make your windows look new. Version 8 includes a couple new styles (including Win8, which mimics the flat style of Modern UI). Each style contains a substyle that'll modify a graphic or tailor your windows and taskbars to be more in line with your current version of Windows: 8, 7, Vista, or XP. You can also add or change a texture overlay to give your windows an even greater visual twist, complete with various color hues.

Version 8's more modern interface has made selecting a style much more intuitive and visually appealing. Preset styles are now showcased vertically on the left panel, with the selectable substyles and descriptions appearing on the right. Gone are the dozen tabs or so from the previous version and settings are now tucked away in a simple gear menu on the upper-right corner, mimicking much of the current progression toward flatter UI design. We actually found the new layout to be much more pleasant to use and refreshing.

Beyond an improved user flow and an ever-increasing library of downloadable themes, WindowBlinds doesn't really bring much to the table in terms of revolutionary features. However its only job is to make Windows look prettier and fancier than the original stock experience. Does it accomplish it? Yes.

A minor note is that though Windows 8 users will especially appreciate the greater control over their OS appearance, the Windows 8.1 service pack is just around the corner, as well. But for anyone running older legacy operating systems, WindowBlinds might just be the fresh coat of paint needed to make your PC look fresh again.

Developer's Description

WindowBlinds enables users to customize the Windows desktop interface with skins. Skinnable elements include the start panel, taskbar, window frames and control buttons to name a few. Personalize any of the default Windows themes or any skins downloaded from WinCustomize.com or create your own skins. Customize the colors, fonts and explorer windows and save your creations as presets for quick access later. The all new user interface makes customization easy and the large previews allow you to see your adjustments before applying them. Set WindowBlinds to apply a randomized skin at timed intervals and surprise yourself with an exciting desktop each time you login.

WindowBlinds also includes SkinStudio, a powerful skin editor application that enables you to design your own skins. Customize only the parts of the Windows interface you want to change and SkinStudio will do the rest. This makes it easy for inexperienced users to create a great skin quickly, while advanced users can still enjoy designing every aspect of the windows interface.
