Thread: Style Xp Vs Windowblinds

  1. #1
    I've have been using Style XP for quite sometime now and it really is a superb program. A while back I heard of WindowBlinds and didn't hear much good things about. I always wondered what the difference between the was and how much difference are their skins...

    Which of these do you use and what makes it a great program to you.

    this has been done quite a few times before if you search for it
    i believe stylexp always comes out on top...

    There basicaly the same, but style xp uses more ressources. I use aston use almost none, and you can completly change the gui of windows.

    I wouldn&#39;t waste my time with either one. just get the uxtheme.dll patch.
    There&#39;s also Aston, but I haven&#39;t really played with it much...but it&#39;s VERY customizable.

    this post is guaranteed 100% parrot-free

    if i bring up my task manager and look at how much memory style XP is using ...it shows 574k...lol...ive never seen it any higher

    so i dont know where u got ya info that stylexp uses too much resources from but it obviously wasnt from personal experience

    in the options menu theres a box that says "use no resources"...tick it...

    I agree. If you don&#39;t know about the uxtheme patch, it allows you to select different themes and visual styles through display properties. There is no point installing an application to do a job that windows own skinning engine can do.


    Lightstars uxtheme patch. Make sure and uninstall style xp first, and follow all instructions when installing the patch.
