Last week, we released the first beta for WindowBlinds 11, which is designed to run on Windows 11 (it also runs on Windows 10). Like previous versions of the application, theming your desktop is as easy as making a couple of clicks and - voila! You have completely changed the appearance of your workspace.
To get started, you will want to download WindowBlinds 11 from your downloads page. Or, you can start a free trial here.
Once installed, the configuration panel will open. This is the primary control surface for the application. From here, you can select the style for your desktop - but it’s also important to note that some styles have multiple options.
As an example, the Acrylic style has four different substyles that slightly change how the skin appears on your desktop. If you don’t see a substyle that matches your preferences, you can modify any style and save it as a preset, too.
One of the big benefits of WindowBlinds is that there are thousands of styles created by our talented community for you to choose from. You can browse skins directly within the application using the “download more styles” option.
Since you are already customizing your desktop, choosing a new wallpaper has never been easier. With WindowBlinds 11, you will see a list of wallpapers that can easily be applied to your device without having to leave the application.
In a future post, we will dive into the Settings and Advanced options, but know that there are robust controls in place to allow for per-application skinning. Some applications, like Chrome/Edge, require a few minutes of effort to make them accept the skin, too.
WindowBlinds 11 is the easiest way to skin your Windows 11 (and Windows 10) desktop. It’s important to keep in mind that Microsoft is frequently changing how Windows 11 operates, which is why we recommend you only use our software on the release builds of the OS and not the insider channels.
However, if you do run into an issue, we are happy to help triage any incompatibilities or features that are not working as expected in our support forums.
