usami
June 28th, 2004, 10:49 PM
How do you make your Desktops like that where everything is changed? (windows, taskbars, start menu, etc) You do that with the program called WindowBlinds, you can get it here wincustomize.com or stardock.com

aaaaaa
June 28th, 2004, 10:58 PM
Windowsblinds or StyleXP.
The former is more powerful, and faster, but the latter is still many peoples choice.

Ok, this mine desktop. It's lame, I know. I just downloaded it from some website. I only liked it 'cause it was black:D Black ownz. Ok let's see. I'v used a customized Icon for everything on my desktop, 2 folders have missing text because I tooks them off. My name is on them, and people arn't allowed to know my name. Why? Because I'm strange. The CD one doesn't have a name on it (special, I know), and the Nintendo one only has videos of newly announced Nintendo games. No pirated stuffs don't worry, I love Ninteno, I'd always buy their products :D

I hope this attachment works...

You wouldn't believe it, I actually got tired of using windowsblinds and went back to the default XP style, lol. Besides, my current theme looks much cleaner compared to the other themes I've been using.

For those that are curious to know, I got the background from a manga artbook titled, "Japanese Comickers." As you'd probably guessed, it shows a nice collection of drawings from various anime artists. Basically, I scanned one picture I thought was pretty cool and photoshopped it a bit to make it more background worthy XD. So, what do you think?
