Please just wait for a new SkinStudio and Windowblinds 11 everyone instead of hacking your system.
Hi LightStar i hope you are well.
Believe it or not , i agree with you, experimenting on your everyday computer is not a good idea nor is it for novices, so i too say do not mess with things that may leave your PC messed up if you do make a mistake, especially if it is something you have never done before.
I can only do this level of experimental work as i have multiple SSDs installed on a Multi Booting System, my main SSD is left well alone, i also have a fresh Image taken weekly for all my SSDs, so i can be fully back up and running in less than 10 minutes. A Users level of all things IT is also a massive consideration in doing experimental stuff, i work in the industry, so all things taken together, i have the skillset to fall back upon.
Stardock for me is the reason i am doing this kind of stuff, i do not know whether it is Blame or Thanks for starting me on this path of Themes and Experimental Customization with WB10 on Win11 machines. Moving to Win 11 without WBs is why i am at this point. My Computer has been upgraded and Enhanced during this period (I thank Stardock for this as i never would have done the work if we had a working WB for Win 11). I also thank Stardock for my venture into Alternate Customizations using Themes and UXThemePatcher, having no WB, same above reasons apply, and now i am a Beta Tester and loving it, getting Premium Themes for free for me to evaluate how they work in Win11, how they can be made better etc..
LightStar is correct, do not do this kind of work if you do not know what you are doing, and especially if you do not know how to recover your system if things go wrong.
