I am a programing newbie (started with Python here) so forgive my ignorance but I have a question.
I’m sure it’s probably way out of my league because no one has done it that I can tell, but here goes.
If I want to modify a window anything opens in, how complicated would that be? Is there a specific program that tells an operating system “windows are rectangles and they all look and function like this.”
By modify, I mean: Just say I open Notepad. It opens in a rectangle. What if I want it to open in an oval with a full border around it that contains an area that can contain Notepad’s controls in button form? Or the border could contain a color graphic that moved around the border that could tell how much time you’ve spent using “Notepad”
I can’t find anyone doing anything like this. What exactly would I need to know to begin to make this happen? I’m assuming gamers would love this too if it didn’t create lag or eat gobs of system resources. if you wanted a futuristic desktop theme your windows could look futuristic rather than just the standard window we all know, that hasn’t seemed to change since the beginning. Computer manufacturers like Alienware could make alien based looking stuff. MSI could incorporate their dragon. If it was open source somewhere people could make their own.
If anyone knows of something like this can you point me to it? If I type window or windows into a search engine question it shows a million and a half suggestions for Microsoft Windows, and my question has nothing to do with Microsoft specifically.
