Oh my gosh, Windowblinds is still active? I remember that software from late 1990s :)
Same here, didn't hear about it since the days of XP when Vista launched and everybody was talking about it :D
I think I was using it during Win98 🤓
Yeah, I used to use it religiously, but didn't know it was still around.
That's a blast from the past.
Old is gold . I knew MS will surprised everybody.
Now it will look like Redstone 3 update on cu
just tried it. Crashes when trying to get the wallpaper...not the standard I'm used to...took it off
No thanks. It destoryed my computers in the past. Maybe it's beter now, but I don't trust it. Most of their skin screenshots look like old OS styles. I'm totally fins with how Windows 10 looks. The Ice theme is my favorite, but it's not good enough to make me try it.
