Desktop OverHaulin' - WindowBlinds
With today's segment we're going to discuss a terrific little program called WindowBlinds. It's both one of the easiest to use when customizing your desktop, as well as one of the most effective for making an overall change. WindowBlinds will change the look of all of your Windows applications, from your taskbar and start menu right down to the buttons for minimizing and maximizing (and everything in between).
It does this by simply employing a skin of your choice, and there are literally thousands to choose from on wincustomize.com. As I am kind of working on an Apple theme, I'm using the Mac OS X Tiger skin available here. Pictured above is a skin called Sustenance. As you can see, although this skin is not too drastic of a deviation from the XP standard, WindowBlinds can improve the appearance of your Windows programs drastically. Sustenance can be downloaded here. Like all of the programs we'll be discussing in Desktop Overhaulin', WindowBlinds is absolutely free - and if you do like the free shareware version, they have a full version with more features available for a small charge.
Now get overhaulin'!
