Another month has started and we have another thread for posting our new desktop screenshots. But this time your customized desktop can win you a free license of WindowBlinds 7. So go ahead and post the screenshot of your desktop here.

In this contest three winners will be chosen on the following criterias.

  • You have to mention what items you have used to customize your desktop like visual style, icons, skins and apps etc.
  • Post your original desktop screenshot. You can use whatever you like but don't use unnecessary widgets, apps etc. just to make your desktop look better.
  • Only Windows desktop screenshots would be considered.
    We are not anti Mac or Linux here. Actually WindowBlinds 7 only works on Windows that's why this criteria is fixed.
The result of this contest would be declared in the first week of December by me and Island Dog. If you change your desktop frequently then no problem, post it again! There is no limit for posting screenshots per user.

Guidelines for posting screenshot:
-Use a thumbnail for your desktop.
-No pornography.
-Don't quote entire pictures when asking a question or commenting, just put their name in bold and question or comment, like so:
@User name: Your question here!
You can check October's screenshots here.

About WindowBlinds
