well im saving that guide, n will mail it to every local dummy who approaches me with the question.....

this will lesssen a little headache.... n provide more options to ppl as well.

coz until now the only customization tip I gave to a nooBe dummy was to DESKTOP-> right click, properties :rolleyes:

after that use Style XP for 30 days n after that a shell pack.... :cool:

Thanx man.

edit: btw thats how my desktop looks with hacked uxtheme.dll after 1 month of Style XP. post-93478-1107351106_thumb.jpg

Does anyone know if there is a cross-reference chart for the different parts of the msstyles.dll file? For example ButtonDkShadow is also known as DkShadow3d or GreyText is also known as MenuDisabledText depending on where you look.

I'm trying to use Toolbar Control...but it won't let me.

I already installed it by clicking setup.exe...Then when I click toolbarcontrol a new menu appears. After 1 second of being on the menu it exits out of the menu by itself.

I live to skin. I'm certain this will get me rolling on system skins the right direction as forums are way cool to skin, but systems look like so much more fun.

Thanks.

You can do this easily w/ ResEdit (a freeware from tgtsoft). Open the VS file, change the font to whatever you want.

Hey... do you know how I can edit the Shell32.dll in Windows XP to put a string so that it shows the "transfer speed" when copying or moving any file just like it does in Vista?

Where is "system tasks"? I have used user xp's shellstyle tutorial and could not find this screen. I am trying to do this on Windows XP, when the user clicks the arrow this screen comes down. I am trying to put a picture instead of a color or a gradient. Thank you, John :(
