Very easy

1.Right Click on your desktop and select Properties - you select the display properties from Control Panel as well

2.Select the Appearance tab

3.Select the Colour Scheme drop down list and select Silver

4.Select OK,the appearance will of XP will then change and OK again to exit the Display Properties :)

I'll back you up Winston, the metallic and olive schemes came around build 2485 or 2495.

Don't worry, RTM is coming out soon. :)

Why don't they make more schemes??

I now that i can select it from the color sheme,but it isnt there,

before i installed xp 2462 with clean install i had upgraded winME

to xp and there was the metallic. Now there is only the default.

RC2 has Olive Green and Silver, plus the default Luna Blue.

Beta2 had only Luna Blue....and it's less complete than whats out now.
