When I first installed WB8, I spent several days wandering around WinCustomize.com, and downloaded many skins which I am much enjoying!!
I face one frustrating anomaly, though... more than 1/3 of my favorite skins are older-style skins, from when there was no taskbar... I can install them, but when I load them, the taskbar is completely messed up; in most cases, it is rendered as a mottled, often-unreadable bar that is roughly the colors of the theme. In many cases, the icons are not even visible.
Unfortunately, I am severely lacking in artistic skills, so rendering the missing object by hand is probably beyond my capabilities.
So what options do I have, for salvaging these old skins?? A least-effort technique would be to remove the taskbar from WB control and let Windows render it, using a color that is compatible with the skin. Best would probably be to re-render the taskbar WB object in the appropriate skill, but I'm assuming that would require Photoshop plus artistic skill, both of which I lack.
Has there been any discussion of this subject previously? Is there any easily accessible solution that would let me utilize these old, beautiful themes?
My system is Windows 7 64-bit.
Originally WB8, but just upgraded to WB10.
