Windows 7: Windowshade/windowblinds for Win7? (rollup/down windows)

Windowshade/windowblinds for Win7? (rollup/down windows)

Is there such a program/utility that will work in Windows 7?

I used to use winshade on XP, and there are a number of other ones that will reduce a window to the title bar only when doubleclicked, but I haven't found one for 7 yet.

Are you referring to WindowBlinds, or another one of their utilities?

If it's windowblinds, can I just use this functionality without changing my entire theme?

/edit: I see you're linking directly to windowblinds download.

Thanks for the suggestions. 4t works well with most windows...turns out my main work application doesn't like win7 window utilities tho. When rolling the window up, it throws the entire window into the upper left hand of the screen, almost out of reach for moving or resizing.

Winroll worked fine; rt-click on the title bar on any open window toggles window shading. Tiny Assembler utility, written for earlier Windows, but W7 accepts it.
