Thank you for this beautiful review
i will fix the bottom-issue in the next version
border skin themes will be fully compatible with truetransparency themes
for the reflection you mean to delete the feature or just turn it off ?
and what do you mean "borders vanish when the app is exited"


What I mean is, the window borders that the program renderred completely vanish when I exit the program. There is no border for those particular windows anymore.

But windows which get created AFTER the program is exited are back to normal.

Thats never happened to me, wierd, are you on old hardware?

Like FastAero, it has a psychedelic way of resizing and sometimes stick around in the wrong position.

The blur is great though it's different to aero and fastAero, looks more like foggy winshields than unfocused cameras.

Agreed, I like the blur but it's a very faint transparency, perhaps he could lower the opacity, as long as it doesnt increase memory usage.

i have no idea about what you are talking about

i will try to make the resizing better in the next version .

i'd be willing to donate to this project so you should set up a website!

i was going to build a website but i am focusing now on developing the program

this is done from the theme , so the program has nothing to do with it .
but i will consider this in the theme in in the next version thanks for the suggestion

I love this program, I do have one recommendation. Please change the ugly titlebar font, it would be great with Segoe UI 9 px, as is the Vista font. Thanks komalo, welcome to WinMatrix :)

does the splash screen at least appears ?
there are many people have a problem starting the program
so it seems that there's a compatibility issue , i will definitely
fix it in the next version, but i just want to know that the program
at least opened

sorry guys

I've tried it and i should say that it is such a nice app, but one thing I might want to say that the Blur option, i.e: the value required for the amount of blurring doesn't work for me..I only had to restart BS for the effect...

well , you suppose to press "enter" after you enter the value but it
seems that it will make a confusion so i will change this to an input box
