Black: A dark translucent skin with a clean style.

This is my third skin. I hope that you enjoy it.

*Special thanks: The wall was made exclusively for Black by vr6fern. He is also the author of the Dark Bliss wallpaper for Eminence.



PS: Please email any bugs that you find promptly to rjsmith2007 at gmail dot com. I am currently working on substyles for Windows Vista.

I love the simple, clean design of Black by ~rjsmith2007. This WB xp theme goes with any dark desktop! ( Suggested by KaRaZyJeW and Featured by abhimanyughoshal )

Just gave it a download and I must say it looks good so far. I really like the start menu though.

Beaultiful theme! Using!

oh man I'm so bummed. I'am a theme/skin critique and I rated this one so high. Great job! I only had one bummer. I have vista and when I installed this everything was perfect but when you open the start menu. The skin user image is there that you made, but the real vista user image is there overlapping it to. Man if you could just remove the image so the actual OS image was there. This skin would probably be the best in it's class as of now. Will be coming back to see if any changes were made. ;)

i am using windows blinds. i installed the skin, when i hit apply changes, it sets my desktop to classic view...ugly grey
Zero-ozx Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2008
this is like soo awesome! I love this theme!
Is there a way you could convert the file type to .theme? So like i can use it as a permanent theme instead of using it with Windowblinds...
I can't wait to see what u have in store for us next!

wait ignore my last comment hahaha, yo great job
Jysen Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2008
so this is a windowsblind skin? is it juz for mac or can it be used for xp and vista?
Xomps Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2008
This is an awesome WB theme, using it right now. Just a little question, Is there any way to fit the start menu with the small icons? As the theme is made for the big ones, and I'm using the small it shows up the first letter and some dots.

thanks again for the them and waiting for your response :).

dude, i like your theme very much, but it seems like the user picture in my start menu is a bit offset (upwards). I am using win vista and have the taskbar on the top so when i click the start button it will get the user settings as well (as if i clicked on my picture) any chance to fix this if possible?
knowheretorun Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2008
amazing window decoration design. did something from "real/physical world" inspire you or "it just happened by accident"?

Love the Start menu and color scheme! One of best themes ever made! :D
Since my pc is in portuguese I'm having a minor issue with the lettering on "my programs" (Meus Programas) and Turn Off Computer" (Desligar o Computador. They have glitches, other than that, absolutely perfect theme!

Awesome skin, love it. Hope you'll get to make a non-black one on the same level sometimes. :)

I love this. Would it be possible if you could update this for Window Blinds 6 so that the startmenu also has a blur?
harysn Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2007
Great work!
The icons and style reminds me of's logo. Very smooth and clean. I'm waiting for the Vista substyles.
Finally, a WB skin for Vista that can be used.
