Over the years, Microsoft has continuously applied visual updates to its operating system, yet some people are still not pleased with its appearance.

And this is where applications like WindowBlinds come in handy as they help users drastically customize the looks of their machine.

Packs multiple sample styles

In an attempt to give you a taste of what the application can offer, WindowBlinds includes numerous styles that completely overhaul their PCs.

Each of them can be previewed in the dedicated section, so you can catch a glimpse of how the Start Menu, the taskbar and the Windows Explorer windows will look like.

Personalize and edit styles

The next step is further customizing a style by adding your own personal touches. You can modify the accent color and the primary skin color, while the blur effects and transparency parameters can be adjusted as well. The font type and size can be altered to your liking.

Moreover, you can apply individual texture effects to the window frames, taskbar or Start Menu, and you can use one of the default images or you can select your own.

Create 'per application' configurations

A very nifty function of WindowBlinds is that you can create a list of programs that will not be affected by any skin you apply to the OS.

Alternatively, you can come up with entirely new looks for certain applications, as long as they are compatible. For instance, you can choose a different style for a certain utility, while also disabling titlebar skinning or scrollbars.

Additionally, you get some options you can enable should you encounter any issues with glassy areas, or if you want to prevent the app from using glass or using themes on controls.


In a nutshell, WindowBlinds provides users with a extensive range of features for enhancing the looks of their machine. While the novices will probably settle with the default styles, the experts will surely experiment with the plethora of customization settings.
