PLYMOUTH, MI - Nov. 20, 2013 - Stardock announced today the 15th anniversary of its innovative WindowBlinds desktop customization application. WindowBlinds is the original Windows user-interface theming application to enable users to customize their PCs with themes called skins. WindowBlinds has been downloaded by customers over 19 million times.

The popularity of WindowBlinds continues well into the app's second decade. The current 8.0 version, released in June 2013, sees over 5,000 downloads per month. Today, there are thousands of incredible WindowBlinds skins available for download at Stardock’s community site

"I am very proud of the longevity of WindowBlinds and the enthusiasm of the skinning community we built along the way. As Microsoft evolves the Windows interface, WindowBlinds is always there with new customization options for our users," said Brad Wardell, CEO at Stardock.  "Not only popular with consumers, brands from Nvidia to Nintendo and XBOX have also licensed WindowBlinds technology for marketing and branding opportunities over the years."
