WindowBlinds 11 allows unique customization of the Windows Start menu, taskbar, window frames, control buttons, and more using desktop interface themes called skins, according to the company. It can also be paired with Start11, which modifies the Start menu, for further customization.
WindowBlinds will cost $14.99 during the beta period or $19.99 at launch. You can download the beta version from the Stardock website. The software will only work with release versions of Windows 11 or Windows 10, not the Windows Insider beta builds that Microsoft makes available to test new Windows code.
“Windows 11 introduced a new design language for the operating system, but we know it’s not for everyone,” Brad Sams, vice president of Stardock Software, said in a statement. “With WindowBlinds 11, you can enjoy the benefits of a modern operating system, but also the flexibility to customize the interface to suit your own personal theme.”
New features for the latest beta include:
- automatic dark mode
- Improved high DPI support for new skins
- Marketplace browser for skin library
- Autoscaling for legacy skins to improve visual fidelity
- Support for File Explorer Tabs and Taskbar Widgets
WindowBlinds 11 comes equipped with an in-app browser to make it even easier to find new skins to download from sites like WinCustomize, which archive skins to let users tweak and refine their Windows experience, the company said.
