Stardock released WindowBlinds 7 today. WindowBlinds is a program that allows users to customize the user interface of Microsoft Windows. By applying "skins," WindowBlinds can easily change nearly every element of the Windows experience including the task bar, Start menu, window borders, scrollbars, push buttons, and much more.

WindowBlinds 7 includes a host of new features and adds native support for Windows 7. Amongst its new features is the ability to "skin Aero."

"This is definitely the most significant new version of WindowBlinds ever," said Brad Wardell, President & CEO of Stardock. "With its ability to extend the native Windows display engine, we can now skin Windows Vista and Windows 7 as if it were always part of the OS."

WindowBlinds 7 includes a new configuration program that makes it easy to access the new features of the program. For example, users can now add their own textures to existing skins.

"One of the most compelling features of WindowBlinds 7 is the way it lets users get more out of the thousands of skins that are already out there," said Wardell. "Now, a user can take a skin that was made for Windows XP and use it on Windows Vista or Windows 7 and it'll look spectacular thanks to the new effect options available in the program."

WindowBlinds 7 is available as a free download. It costs $19.95 to register or can be purchased for $49.95 as part of Object Desktop, Stardock's full suite of desktop enhancement programs. Users of previous versions of WindowBlinds can upgrade for $9.95.
