    WindowBlinds doesn't work

    Just in case anyone is curious, WindowsBlinds, the new version 7+, does not work.

    Not only does it NOT change the display, more seriously, depending on the theme you select, it totally hoses up the display so that all you get is a black screen with a mouse cursor.

    I was trying this because my old tablet PC is one of the infamous Intel 915 chipset laptops and I have been using WB successfully in Win7 to get themes that are better than the Windows Basic default.

    Also tried the latest beta, and it has the same problems.

    Windows 8 Enterprise Eval x64

    For those who like the Seven Start Menu there is Start8, from Stardock.
    I'm using it right now and it's doing good on my system, very configurable.

    Windows 8.1 Pro x64, Windows Server 2012 R2 x64

    i learned this the hard way.............i tried installing it on 8 and it horribly screwed the desktop/UI, and a BSOD. hope they come out with an updated version, i'll be buying it if they do. as well as Start8.

My Windows Key doesn't work
I had been using the Windows key to switch back and forth from Metro to desktop. When I am in Metro, pressing it does nothing, but it works everywhere else. I simply click on the desktop icon, so it's no big deal, but is there a solution?
