It seems that they have remade window blinds and called it 'curtains' Linkage

Wonder why the redo? And, wonder if they DID actually Redo, or if they simply rebranded it..

Initial Impressions. Still installs as a "Program Files x86" program, but does at least seem stable.
I'll give further opinions after a couple of days, but the main bug that existed for 20-odd sodding years, seems to have been fixed.
(New windows would consistently open about 8x8 pixels right+down from their previous position)

So, I think this is probably quite a big rewrite of how the thing works, and that seems good to me.
Current theme = "Midnight", which is a nice dark theme. I've picked an orange hue, and it all looks great!

Having a little read, it 'different'. It's built around windows 10 themes rather than 'just redraw everything'. I'll give it a try.
What was bugging me about wb, is the complete lack of free themes for W10, and the paid ones all looked like crap.

I've had three explorer crashes, this morning.

Hmm..
Now when I double-click a .html from file explorer, it opens an Edge Chromium browser window with a second tab, containing "--disable-windows10-custom-titlebar/"
This is obviously meant for Chrome, not Edge..

Yep, and you can turn it off, too.
Head into Curtains/Options and there's a checkbox to "Apply styles to Google Chrome...[snip]"
Disable that, and you can now double-click html's again without the added tab.

Gawd, have you SEEN the state of the theme folders!?!
So many things you need to create.
Not sure I have the energy (and/or artistic talent) to bother attempting one.

I was thinking of redoing my Amiga theme, it would probably look nice in a W10 style

I was wondering how hard it might be to do a "Lazy Man's Theme Generator", which takes a single png and splits it up into a working theme.

.. and then looked at the state of the folder and screamed for an hour.

I see what you mean about the '--disable-windows10-custom-titlebar/' not working correctly It seems to be a chrome issue, they've disabled windows 10 theming and I guess in turn, removed the flag to disable the theme

Aye, is there, now. Sorry! When I clicked earlier today, it just took me to the Curtains page. Yeah must have an approval delay or something.

Nice theme! Bit bright for me, now, though. I've gotten used to the darkness of that Midnight theme!
My eyes are old!!!!!

I've noticed it needs at least a dark line on the taskbar, hard to see the edge...

OK, paid for..
I've had it on here for long enough that I've completely fallen in love with the way the Midnight theme looks.
Last night, I hopped onto the "Remote Desktopped Windows on a MacMini" system, and that didn't have Curtains installed, and ... Aaargh!! The Bland Uninteresting Whiteness!!!
AAAARGGHHH!!!!

So, yeah, £9.99's a bargain for not having your eyes melted.

I hope they add more features like skinning regular buttons etc. no go overboard like wb did, but enough to make a cohesive theme.

Not sure if that's possible. The current version seems to be hacking what Windows' themes are already capable of.
Anything more than that will probably require additional hacks which (god forbid) could end up bringing back that stupid position offset bug again!!!

I don't know if this link works yet.... https://www.wincustomize.com/explore/curtains/157/
Those borders are almost completely impossible to recreate in curtains, I had to make then a custom shadow.

I think that site must have a moderation flag or something, before things become "live". The last item I can view is #155.
|update| It's working now |update|
