File Extension WBA

The file extension WBA is associated with WindowBlinds, which allows you to change the look of the Windows operating system. WindowsBlinds is produced by Stardock Corporation and is an application that provides you with tools for modifying title bars, radio buttons, icons, scrollbars, color schemes, and any other components included in the Windows User Interface.

WBA files are a graphics file type that contains customization settings for customizing the Windows operating system. The files are commonly referred to as compressed skin files which are unzipped using the WindowsBlinds application.

WindowsBlinds works in conjunction with the WinCustomize website which provides Windows users with additional WindowsBlinds skins for customizing the look and feel of Windows. WindowsBlinds works with all versions of the Windows operating system and allows you to customize the skins which are offered by the application and by WinCustomize.

Since WBA files are typically in a compressed format, they can also be unzipped using a wide variety of other compression utility programs.

How to Open WBA Files

WBA files can be opened in Windows using the WindowsBlinds application, which is available as a 30-day free trial on the Stardock website. You can also use it with the Object Desktop program which provides you with more functions and capabilities for customizing Windows.

You can also open WBA files using other compression utility programs with a variety of operating systems.
