Monday, October 19, 2020 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize News

We're getting closer to Halloween and we've been featuring many of the fantastic Halloween skins we have here on WinCustomize. I was browsing through the CursorFX gallery this morning and noticed another Halloween themed cursor, so I thought CursorFX would be fun to spotlight this week. 

Use CursorFX to easily change your Windows mouse cursor to one of thousands available on WinCustomize!

We have finally hit Fall and now we start our way through the holiday season! First up, we have Halloween coming up and we've been busy getting some Halloween wallpapers and other spooky themes up. We're also featuring a ton of Halloween skins this month so be sure to check the daily feature.

Here's a wrap-up of some new, articles, forum posts, and skins you might have missed!

Stardock News:

Curtains v1.1 is Now Available

"The newest version of Curtains adds a major new feature for Explorer background transparency and blur effects. While the new option only comes standard with certain styles in the app, users can edit other styles and apply the blur and transparency effects themselves for further customization. 

A new option to extend the title bar ribbon in Explorer windows also adds an extra layer of customization for those who enjoy editing every detail of their Windows experience. v1.1 also introduces several quality of life improvements and increased style application speed."

Getting an Early Start on a Halloween Desktop!

Monday, September 28, 2020 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize News

We are rapidly approaching October, and that means it's getting closer to Halloween! I recently asked the WinCustomize community about skinning holidays and Halloween came up as one of the top answers. We've always had great contributions from skinners with Halloween themes, so it's no surprise people enjoy these. 

Since we're just over a month out, I thought it's a wonderful time to start featuring more Halloween skins, and we've been working to get more Halloween themed wallpapers also.

Here's a few skins to get your started!

Happy Fall Ya'll!

Monday, September 21, 2020 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize News

Fall official starts tomorrow! Hopefully, this means some cooler weather will be headed our way. Although we don't the seasonal color changing down here, I'd love to see some pics from our community who do get to see it.

Otherwise, some of us must be happy with just seeing seasonal colors on the desktop, and that's what todays post is about. Here's some static and animated wallpapers for the new season!

Get Your Desktop Ready for Fall!

Monday, September 14, 2020 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize News

We're just about a week away from the official start of Fall, and if you are someone who likes to match your desktop with the season, now is a fantastic time to get started! 

Using the search function and just typing in "fall" or "autumn" should get you a ton of results for seasonal skins, but I've gone through and picked some of my favorites to get you started.

Starting off with a good WindowBlinds skin is a great foundation to build on. Fall Color is a beautiful WindowBlinds skin that is a great starting point for any fall desktop. Also check out the Fall 2 Master skin bydon5318.

Changing the wallpaper is a good next step. We have a nice variety of both animated and static wallpapers, so you have a ton of choices. Autumn Colors is a beautiful animated wallpaper scene for DeskScapes that goes great with the above WindowBlinds skin. 

Autumn Leaves on Ground is a static wallpaper that also goes great with our desktop. 

Applying a new cursor theme with CursorFX is the next step on our Fall desktop today. We're going with the new Candy Corn FX by BONEHEADdb. It's a fun and cool design with just the right colors.

These are just a few themes to get you started but take some time to search and browse through the WinCustomize galleries. There are many more seasonal skins and themes that will get your desktop ready for the cooler weather!
