Custom manage even splash screens, with settings dif-
fering from the very same programs other window con-figurations!

Premonitor new wallpapers in actual display mode with-
out exiting wallpaper config window!

Safety Guarding examples of crucial windows that are
NOT IE Explorer!

Apply 3 different transparency values preset for each
window separately with only one or 2 clicks without
entering ActWinMans Config window or changing a rule!



Hi folks, some more tips, waiting for your tips as well, hope youre enjoying the program and its forum;

Have you ever realized what you can make out of the
fact that every window you configure with actual tools,
and you dont just have one tool, like actual title
buttons, but the whole set of all six tools together,
called Actual window manger, has 3 different places
where you can configure transparency? One place is your
addable transparency button in actual title buttons,
one is in the menu context you set for that window,
and a third one is in the separate tool or subconfig
menu "transparency actions or options".

What you do is, in the transparency actions window,
enable changing t value by double clicking the title
bar and set transparency to 35 per cent when double
clicking the title, bar, then setting 25 per cent
transparency to your transparency button you add to
that window, and 60 per cent transparency to that
windows context menu that appears when, I think, right
clicking the very left corner of the title bar.

Now, double click on the middle of your windows title
bar, its 35 percent less opaque. Double click again,
back to normal.

Fastly click the left corner of the title bar, the
menu appears, select make transparent, and ZAP! the
same window to 60tp setting in a jiffy! Or set it back
in the same menu. POW! 2,5 seconds. Now configuration
mess needed, no extra entering of that window just to
change this window!

And next day you fastly want to 25percent its transp
figure? Click its Transparency button in the same title
bar. Thats it! Kazoing! 1 half second! BANG! BOOM!
Set it back! Another half second, or less, if your fas-
ter. Its up to you! WHACK! KAZOOEY! BLAM!

Read the next 3 tips mentioned above as new post be-
low, so my explorer doesnt shut me down before Im fin-
ished, which it did often, and I dont want to refigure
now. (Continued)

Well, now we know how to make the same window enter four(!) transparency modes, with a fast click, IN THE
SAME WINDOW RULE you dont have to reconfig for this

1.) Opaque, or fully visible (for years I didnt know
what a crazy word like opaque really means)

2.) 25 per cent transparent

3.) 35 per cent transparent

4.) 60 per cent transparent.



Next tip is for what else to guard with Actual window
guard besides the IE Explorer:

A.) Other browsers
For technical reasons, always have several free
browsers installed, cause if one makes problems
with only one or 2 things, without restarting,
instead of IE 6.0, start free DX browser
including multitabbing and autoscroll IE 6.0
does not have, your URL copied from
malfunctioning explorer can be pasted here and
called up successfully, sometimes without side
effects of active X and browser helping junk
youve ruined explorer with because you need that
trash for other reasons, BUT

you also safeguard accidentally closing of this
browser, which shuts down 9 windows at once you
call up in the same browser without reopening
new browser windows with ActWinGuards safety
popup prompt "really close, or not?"

B.) Configuration windows of

THEME MANAGERS of stardock or microsoft are very
crucial to exit without having "saved to" some-
where else under a new name, or saved, or
deleted something

ICON PACKAGE RANDOMIZER CONFIG WINDOWS,

SCREEN SAVING GROUP RANDOMIZING CONFIG WINDOWS,

LOGON SCREEN FAVORITE RANDOMIZING AND GENERAL
CONFIG WINDOWS can be crucial,

BOOT SCREEN RANDOMIZING CONFIG WINDOWS,

CLOCK SKINNING FACTORY CONFIG WINDOWS,

IMAGE editing, SLIDE SHOW and SCREEN SAVER gene-
rating, windows are crucial to exit to early

ICON DEVELOPING, DESKTOP OBJECT CREATING
WINDOWS, SKINNING MANAGER WINDOWS where you
randomize when which skin comes in where, that
you have just created there for over one hour
do not always have to be guarded, and some have
their own warnings, but god almighty, your sure
want to be ABLE to add a pre-exiting precaution
tick box question, dontcha!

WALLPAPER managers config windows mostly have
their own measures, YET what they dont have is
our next TIP -

A realtime genuine predisplay in full alignment, color
and size mode of NEW WALLPAPERS and their lists effects
visible simultaneously without leaving their editing
window, which also goes for their settings config win-
dow, also relevant, in example for where your custom
text appears in that wallpaper, what it will really
look like in which font and color, with what parameters
like date etc, name of picture, if the pictures dark
and trickilly multicolored, and the writing size and
color is hard to match, while your still in the con-
figuration window.

SOLUTION: Actual window manager 3.6 advanced transpar-
ency and sizing change of that editing and setting
windows values, which often isnt that changeable by
the wallpaper manager itself, even in pro versions or
very advanced free versions, which, ironically, often
are technically better, than the so-called proversions.

One pro version cant handle htms, the next pro version
cant apply differently changing papers to each separate
window UNLESS its the desktop window, still another
PRO PRO version doesnt come with its own skin set, neither does actual window manager yet, but that could
even be dangerous or distractive if your not familiar
with everything by heart yet, and the UTMOST SUPERPROS
WALLPAPER MANAGERS often dont want not to know what a season is, or in old versions had problems learning that a night wallpaper group could run after midnight, which it thought was a new date, AND WHAT A PRO FORUM laughed in your face, when you wanted the help text file or even the program be in your language, asking you what version youre using- OH! you ingrateful slob are still in a free lite or limited trial version - What do you expect for, you meaningless mothertrucker, I develope WALLPAPERTHIS in my free time, how much did you almost feel forced to DONATE with PAY PAL yet, a dollar to less for getting interested in the POPO VERSION, well heres my POPO for you (screenshot of developers derriere).

No wonder the premonitoring feature or transparency setting is missing! Shame on users like you!

Sure am glad I just doubleclick once on POPROPOs window, and I see my future wallpaper the right way
and thats that. Was worth paying for that, too. Can
be done with just one ACTUALly cheap tool. There!

To make a short story long(ing for its end),

how many of you have yet told us about your SPLASH
SCREEN nag treatment with Actual window manger 3.6?
May have overlooked an item or 2, still a good thing
you use every night, and day, if thats when your awake.

You call up Ad-ware SE Plus 6.2 every day, eh? A dif-
ferent window shows first explaining to you that you
impatient registered sucker better wait till Ive check-
ed for updated definitions files first, and dont think
thats when Ill splashnag by way outtahere, heck no,
then Ill keep on blockin up 4 more important windows
by having to inform you (which is good), that Im still
applying your holy SUPERMAN skin which you downloaded
free, you worm of a spoiled free skindownloader, see,
thats what you get for your punishment, an almost un-
necessary splash aligned wrong, sometimes not in a
language which letters you know how to spell, if its
a different program, because you read horizontally
and in the wrong direction, too.

When creating your window rules for that program, just
de-select class or title or program and find out how
to catch the splash, then make sure in other programs
splashes by checking their window context menus whether or not they are also controlled by the splash
rule you just set up (Create new rule? Edit rule?,
hey, which rule is it, Oh, hmmh., no that doesnt con-
flict with Adaware splash rule, fine).

Now your Adaware entering SPLASH even entertains and
reassures you everythings hunky dory, and SUPERSKIN
RABBIT is on his way, instead of SANTA CLAUSE, because its Easter, while you can mess on with your E-Mail
window undisturbed, knowing Adawares incoming next
windows are will be placed right as well pretty soon
by means of their own rules, neither where splashing,
nor where you work either. Let us thank the window
lord, brethren of next (s)kin, an sistas, for his having heard our prayers.

This way, Actual window manager may you see WANTING to
SPLASH or be NAGGED, in fact more often, as long as
nothing else crucial is perturbed by potential threats. Great balls of fire in the sky, just to think positive again one more time instead of being NAGGED,
SPLASHED, PAYPALPRODONATED in to a DONUTPOPOTRAYGAL
out of her mind, looking like a DONUT lying around in
a bakery 4 days too long.

Hey, what do you people, do with the program? Still
curious? :?:

SPLASH SCREEN MANAGING AND CATCHIN

Good, only 2 more tips to do that right.

Splash screens align unpredictably and fast sometimes,
even with their own transparency makin it hard to catch
their name and class.

With ActWinMan 3.6, though, that hides the config window when targeting objects on your gunsight,
all you have to do is already have your opened AcTWINMAN config window entered and set in new rule mode, and then call up the program splashing and al-
ready be over the gunsight even before it splashes,
one quick chase with the sight on to the splashing
little devil, and WHAMMO! Send the program away com-
pletely now, take your time in configuring as long as
you like, because youve got its profile snapshotted
better than any sheriff of the Wild West ever speed-
trapped a highway trucker.

Before you do that, also in your ACTWINMAN config win-
dow, do first enter a very descriptive tempory rule
name, because if some other macro or program or hijacker halts or crashes this complex process or you
tick the exit warning box wrong when leaving later by
mistake, later you have "window rule (1), (2) etc."
and after having restarted 2 days later, cause your
mom or boss called and you had to change cities fast,
you have a hard time reconstructing what this rule was
for and could be tempted or forced to delete it without
remembering "Oh yeah, I wanted to alter splash program
no 32beta, so thats what I forgot about, no biggie".

You see, another thing making your suggestion of 3 dif-
ferent fast presets of transparency or flavors of win-
dow ruleset ready fast for few clicks so vital is that
these things are not to be called up manually later on
but by sensitive automated loops including mousing. The
less config windows have to be entered and exited for
this, the more you get from this program version.

Which is why your and Josephs paramater readoff quotes
should even top off Michaels ingenious new 3.6 to the
config window OF THAT SPECIFIC windows by selecting
edit rule in its title bar menu with the following
offswitchable 3 alternative-set:

If you RIGHT-click the windows, lets say, tray icon
ONCE, you get the normal (maximize, restore, close
or transp or whatever) context. RIGHT-clicking it
TWICE calls up ACTWINMANS general config window for
that window, which saves the macro some clicks as op-
posed to entering its titlebars menus subcontext, clicking and waiting for its config window to show

(still
a shortcut hard to beat we are extremely grateful for and is new in 3.6),

and LEFT-CLICKING it once or twice, better yet, just
hovering over the icon makes WINDOW of Josephs appear,
with his playlist paramaters, or your skinning and win-
dow managing parameter list active as a BALLOON TIP, whereas, only one left click more or less calls up

WINDOW no. four essential for that window ONLY DISPLAYING and not configuring its rule settings with-
out entering its rule configuration window yet. All of
this is fast, saves time and other malicious risks, be-
cause 3 macros and 24 other programs are active too,
and your waiting on further stages while also fastly
checking whether or not to change the ACTWINMAN rule
of one or 2 windows in the background.

SKINNING OPTIMIZATION WITH A WINDOW MANAGER

;) Whether or not you are reading this on my Joe user
homepage now

(Click here to go to TAXIFUNKS OWN site)

(a new page under constant construction, so always
press your browsers refresh button if that is
where you are now) or an external forum to which
my site may have a "favorite link", like ACTUAL
WINDOW MANAGER and their forum, click on "SIZE
and guard skinned window with these tools" in
the "My favorites" link section on the right),

you may be interested in the interaction and good
combination of BUTTON POSITION CHANGING by the skin
creating, the skin applying, and button shifting ex-
ternal WINDOW MANAGING PROGRAM you can combine.

For example, you CREATE your skin with SKIN STUDIO
PROFESSIONAL by Stardock and then it is APPLIED
by resident SKIN CHANGER WINDOWBLINDS ENHANCED by
Stardock, randomly selected by the additional free
downloadable tool a user offers in their forum. OR
you just download a skin at deviantart or some other
site and apply it with WB, BUT!!!!:

You suddenly find the window minimizing button on
THE BOTTOM RIGHT, UNDERNEATH THE STATUS BAR,
the CLOSING button on the left, NOT EVEN IN THE WINDOW
BORDER BAR, but in an EXTERNAL ADDITIONAL button, in
the WRONG POSITION FOR YOUR mouse macros.

Now, what do? It is IMPORTANT sometimes NOT TO HAVE
YOUR WINDOW TITLE BUTTONS ON the top TITLEBARD!!

But, you want to get the buttons SHIFTED BACK INTO
VISIBLE and thus CLICKABLE ZONES which are covered
by a BEAUTIFUL MASK SHIELD in the skin to GO AROUND
and BEAUTIFY the boring buttons of yours, and your
window manager(s), and your externally button adding
programs like HARDCOPY german version by siegfried
weckmann, dont mix this up with the far less powerful
and completely different US HARDCOPY from an entirely
different webpage.

For SKINNERS, BUTTON SHIFTING is not just because
your window manager and your programs buttons must
all cooperate so as not to placed halfways over
each other etc., BUT ALSO because you dont want the
skin setup to completely change ALL of the SKINS
buttons position (even their application ex and in-
clusions are not always what you want), INSTEAD,
per given SKIN, an EXTERNAL window manager like
ACTUAL WINDOW MANAGER by actualtools.com can
SEPARATELY change CERTAIN or ALL windows BUTTON
POSITION in THAT skin. Which is why you want to try
to make COMPLETE SETS of WINDOW MANAGING rules in
your EXTERNAL window managing program adaptable to
each skin.

Even without that, EXTERNAL window managing is a
MUST for skinners WHO EVEN USE automated MOUSE MACROS
clicking around in their FX windows completely
CUSTOM SKINNED with a RED SHADOW from an FX program
and a skin from a skin program and a sound from a
sound program (or the skin, or the program itself).

Try ACTUAL TITLE BUTTONS out for this external kick
giving you more possibilities in your, lets say
skin applied by a Stardock skin changer.

Their url is www.actualtools.com.
