    I wish the skin writers would exactly define what color did what.

    "color 2" doesn't tell me squat what color is being changed.
    I have spent many hours changing colors 1x1 trial & error trying to change a particuar color.
    The authors need to quit being so lazy & actually describe what "system color 2" actually does.

    I have Skin Studio.It freezes my computer.I have a slow cheap computer.
    I tried making skins.
    It's hard to do when you get a freeze up.
    If I could make a skin the different colors would be well designed to show exactly what they were.
    Not some dumbass "skin color 3" or some such bullpoop.

    Done venting about the stupidity of skin makers.

    That sounds really irritating!

    Is this "Skin Studio" free?

    I think if you get WindowBlinds it is free.

    I'll be back.

    It has a steep learning curve.

    Downloading...

    I'll fiddle with it and see how it works. Have you made any skins yourself with it?

    No. The learning curve is too steep for me.
    All I did was to change some colors.
    You have better control of color changes than with WindowBlinds.

    Hmm, can't use it on Windows 10.

    That's a bummer...

    I'll go back to 8.1 and see if I can play with it.

    Hmm, there is quite a learning curve!

    I'll have to see if there are any tutorials out there.

    I don't blame you.
    It is right complicated.
