Enhanced, can you provide us a complete guide to install the Longhorn Alternative ? I know nuts about y dock, y toolbar, widgets, avedesk, etc etc. Only know how to apply the theme and wallpaper, bootscreen and welcome screen. Thanks a million.

I was using the whole pack for a day or so, but decided to go back to ximian 2 style, howeverm I'm still using the Yz dock theme, but at the top of the screen, so I had to mod slightly. If anyone else would like to use it...

Hey sure,

1. Make sure you have these programs on your computer: Y'z toolbar, Y'z Dock, Avedesk, and or rainlendar. If you don't have them google it :p

Y'z toolbar skins the explorer toolbar, y'z dock ads the os x styled start menu to your comp and avedesk ads support to windows for VERY high-res icons on your desktop (similar to desktop x)

2. Each program has a "skins folder" except for avedesk, it has a Desklets folder.

In the package there are the names of the programs inside the zip. Extract the "longhorn alternative" folder into the applications "skin" folder.

3. After that is done just run the program and change the skin. (For y'z toolbar, right click the explorer toolbar and click settings and a skins dialog should appear.)

The same goes for y'z dock and rainlendar.

I hope that helps
