Windows 7 style border skin and aero glass effect for XP

Border Skin is a small utility for Windows XP that will give Windows 7 like visual style (blur and reflection/Aero glass) to window boarder.

The application is portable and no installation is required. Just download (2.2Mb), unzip and run it. It will sit on the system tray. You can select and apply different boarder styles and other effects from there.

The program requires .NET Framework 2 and above for working and you can put this program on Windows start up.

However, like every visual style program, this one is also not free from instability. It has some minor bugs, especially if ‘Aero explorer’ enabled on maximized window.

You can download Boarder style from here.
