Bringing a Rounded Taskbar to Windows 11

Article posted on 12/6/2022

Last week, we released WindowBlinds 11 1.0, and with it comes a bunch of new features. One of them is that, for specific styles, it’s possible to bring a rounded taskbar to Windows 11.

There are several themes out of the box, but one in particular - Diamond - has been overhauled to support all of the new features in WindowBlinds 11. This means that along with higher DPI support and themes for various Start menu styles, we also took the time to implement a rounded taskbar.

With a few simple clicks, you can apply the Diamond theme to your desktop and experience a modern Windows design. Like all themes within WindowBlinds, you can customize it to your exact specification by adjusting the transparency, font, and more from within the app.

While not all themes have a rounded taskbar, support is up to the designer to implement. With the release of v1.0, we expect more updates to arrive from our community of creators in the near future.

If you are looking at the Diamond theme and thinking, "it would be great if there was a darker version," don't worry; we are hard at work building out this style and expect to ship it at a later date. Like all skins, if you do not want the included Start button to be present, you can default back to the standard Windows icon.

WindowBlinds is Stardock’s most robust application when it comes to personalization. With 1.0 now out the door, the work begins on updating older styles so that they support new features we have introduced. We can't wait to see what you come up with.

And by 'you', we mean anyone who has purchased WindowBlinds 11. With each purchase, you also receive a copy of our SkinStudio suite so that you can build your own design from scratch or further customize an existing design, too.
