A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a trending color called Electric Tangerine. I think it's a beautiful spring and summer color, and I think at least a few of you agreed. 2of3 and don5318 have released WindowBlinds skins that have some of that color integrated in the design. These are both fantastic skins so be sure to check them both out! Cole by 2of3   Tangerine II by don5318 Thanks for taking time to create and share these skins with the WinCustomize community! ...

We've mentioned spring desktop wallpapers recently, but of course there's much more you can do for spring than just change your wallpaper.  One of my favorite skins to use for spring is from don5318 called Simple Green. This is a nice WindowBlinds skin that has an overall minimal design, but with beautiful touches of spring colors sprinkled in. Not specifically designed for spring, but Reality by LightStar has a perfect color scheme that matches well with a bunch of spring an...

I didn't realize that spring officially started on March 20th of this year. For whatever reason I thought it was next month, so I guess the new season is just around the corner.

I'm going to highlight some favorites and get some featured on WinCustomize, but if you have a spring inspired skin or know of som...

How often do you change your desktop wallpaper? For my main PCs I usually have a folder of wallpapers I like and have them change throughout the day. It keeps the desktop updated with a new scene often, and it makes my desktop a little less boring.  We're trying to build up a nice, curated wallpaper gallery here on WinCustomize, and the integration with DeskScapes 11 is going to make that an excellent feature to have. So, let's highlight a few of the recent wallpaper submissions! ...

We used to have a software wiki many years ago with entries for all of Stardock software and WinCustomize. Unfortunately, all its data was lost quite a long time ago and it was a nice resource that was missed. The good news is we've been building a new wiki just for software and it's ready to go! As it is a wiki there is still some work to do with updates and such, but overall, this is a great resource for information on specific software. If you need to easily find changelogs, tutorials, blo...
