I REALLY find the taskbar here more attractive than the one found on Windows 10 IMO.

Sorry but i am a little bit confused. How did you get the idea that this has something to do with Windows Blinds? I never made something for it, and i never will.
The windows borders are drawn with BorderSkin by:iconkomalo:
The taskbar is made with SBar.. You can read it in the description above.
A detailed tutorial how to use this by:iconvishal-gupta:is herewww.askvg.com/transform-window…
The drive icons cannot be changed while the prog is running. Look for it in taskmanager, kill the process.
Replace the icons and reboot. That's all.
Hope this helps.

Ist das nur für XP oder auch für 7? 
Wäre dir echt dankbar für eine Antwort. 
Ich finde deine Arbeiten echt super. :)

Zunächst mal herzlichen Dank für das Lob.:handshake:
Das ist für XP. Ein paar Sachen funktionieren auch mit Windows7.
Windows7User13's avatar
Von mir auch zunächst ein danke für die Antwort :) 
Noch eine Frage: kann man mit so einem Pack auch für windows 7 rechnen? 
Oder kann ich auch das hernehmen? 
Mich würden nur die Funktionen interessieren die unter windows 7 funktionieren.

Vielen Dank

Here is your logon and userpicture. You must download it from my skydrive because DA doesn't allow exe uploads.
