    Windows 7 Centered Titlebar Text

    I have found a converter for msstyles to WindowBlinds but it only supports msstyles files from XP and not Windows 7. https://forums.stardock.com/374169/msstyle-support https://forums.wincustomize.com/366658/windowblinds-7-skinning-in-an-aero-world https://forums.stardock.com/389025/converting-msstyles-with-skinstudio7 https://forums.stardock.com/488118/page/1/#3708036

    Windows 7 Centered Titlebar Text

    Thanks for the tip! I actually purchased WindowBlinds already back in 2010 but at that time my computer were so old so running WindowBlinds slowed down the computer so much so I couldn't use it. Then I have forgot about that program so I haven't tried it in 9 years. But now when I installed it on my brand new computer it runs smoothly without problems. It seems to have extremely many options so it can be played around with in very many hours. So far I have only tested to center captions and it worked great. I have looked around but I haven't find any option to just import an .msstyles file. I still use that beautiful theme "Longhorn EV savoury.msstyles" you helped me with before. I want to import that theme and then make the caption change but it doesn't seem possible to do that. But maybe it's there somewhere but I haven't find it yet. Have you seen any kind of import option for msstyles files?

    Windows 7 Centered Titlebar Text

    Yes, I suspected that it would be hard to do. I will try more if I maybe can find the solution at some other site. If I do I will post it here.

    Windows 7 Centered Titlebar Text

    Have you looked any further into this? Is there any chance to make it work or is it way too complicated?

    Run GlassToasts (balloon notifications) in Windows 7?

    I used the great program Startup Delayer https://www.r2.com.au/page/products/show/startup-delayer/ and added 30 seconds delay. Then during the whole day I have restarted my computer up to 10 times to test if the delay would help. And it did! The taskbar haven't disappeared anymore after I added the startup delay.

    Run GlassToasts (balloon notifications) in Windows 7?

    I have (maybe) found a new bug. When I start my computer about 25% of times the whole taskbar disappears and I must restart explorer.exe to get it back. I'm not 100% sure if it's related to GlassToasts at all but probably it is because I haven't got this error before.

    Run GlassToasts (balloon notifications) in Windows 7?

    Just tested the new version and now I didn't see any strange dialogs neither at startup or shutdown. But that yellow thing is very weird, especially since it only shows in default skin and not in others.

    Run GlassToasts (balloon notifications) in Windows 7?

    It hasn't prevented any of my icons to show in tray so far and I have about 15 icons there. The most annoying thing is the "sample" dialogs that shows maybe 5-6 times at every startup. So if that's possible to fix it would be great but otherwise I can add a delay to GlassToasts startup so it starts maybe 30 seconds later and then I will not see any "sample" dialogs any longer.

    I have noticed another strange dialog when I shutdown my computer. This shows (but only once at every shutdown): I have never seen it before I started to use GlassToasts.

    Run GlassToasts (balloon notifications) in Windows 7?

    Tried with -silence and it works for me now. The yellow shadow is very strange so I will probably use another skin. More skins can be found at https://www.deviantart.com I don't know why the "sample" dialog shows for me. Maybe it's related to any other program I have in startup because it only shows at computer startup but never later.

    Run GlassToasts (balloon notifications) in Windows 7?

    Amazing as usual! Super thanks! Just two small bugs I noticed after test: Even though I use GlassToasts64.exe -auto to hide the start dialog it still shows at every start. I mean this: The other bug is that the shadow reflection are yellow in start dialog and in skin "Beta1". But it's not yellow in the other skins. Can it be fixed? Edit: Found third bug that appeared after I put GlassToasts in autostart and restarted computer. This dialog shows several times during startup:
  12. I know this question probably is posted in wrong section in the forum because it's about Windows 7. But I have been doing a lot of internet searching and I found practically nothing about this anywhere. So I want to ask here because I think the knowledge about this is highest in this thread. It would be very interesting if @bigmuscle or maybe anyone else here can answer my question. My question is if it's possible to get the titlebar text center aligned in Windows 7? I mean like it looks like in Windows 8 and also possible in Windows 10 with Aero Glass for Win8.1+. I guess dwm.exe must be edited in some way to make it work. I copied dwm.exe to desktop with help of Raw File Copier Pro https://www.novirusthanks.org/products/raw-file-copier-pro/. Without it I couldn't either copy or edit the file, not even in safe mode. I have no programming knowledge but I can edit dwm.exe in hex editor HxD https://mh-nexus.de/en/hxd/ if someone knows exactly what's need to be edited to make the text centered. I hope the solution is that easy to only edit dwm.exe. But I have no idea, maybe much more is required to make it work.

    Run GlassToasts (balloon notifications) in Windows 7?

    I just wanted to say that I made a mistake, the download link from aveapps does work: https://www.aveapps.com/glasstoast.zip I mixed them up, it's this link from the developers even older site that doesn't exist any longer: http://mpj.tomaatnet.nl/glasstoast.zip Source code also available here: https://www.aveapps.com/GlassToastFiles.zip @UCyborg If no one else knows how to do it, I'm very grateful for your help even if it takes a long time before you can look at it, there's absolutely no hurry.
  15. I have found the program GlassToasts https://www.aveapps.com/glasstoasts.html The program can't be downloaded from that site any longer but can be downloaded from Softpedia https://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-Tweak/GlassToasts.shtml The problem is that it only works in Windows Vista and XP. I wonder if someone has the knowledge to modify it so it works in Windows 7 also? The original developer has released the source code at Github https://github.com/AndreasVerhoeven/GlassToasts
