Three boxes later :shock: after the one I had for 10 years blew up :( (not kidding), need to know whether Winstep and Windows 8 are compatible.

If so, those using Windows 8, how did you set yours up?

Thanks.

Hi Mist!

They are compatible, but because Microsoft actually *removed* the glass blur functions from Windows 8, the Glass Blur function that would automatically blur the semi-transparent part of dock backgrounds, etc, will not work.

Also, since Microsoft also removed the Start Menu code, the 'Show Start Menu' internal command won't work either.

As far as I know those are the only/major problems with Windows 8.
