Windows Live XP - msstyle by GruvSyco Windows Live XP - msstyle by GruvSyco
Mostly just putting this here for my eventual system reformat.

Live XP Visual Style based on Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Photo Gallery and the Windows Live Website.

I was using this one for a while...

While it looks good, it's more of a match for the Live Messenger style (I use Pidgin). You can use his ViOrb if you'd like more Vista appeal. I prefer the XP Menu to ViStart so, no theme planned for that.

I also have a Styler toolbar in progress. [link]

Icons I downloaded from CrystalXP. (I think it's this one) [link]

Basically my goal was to make a simple clean XP theme based on Live. I'd still like to get the 1px borders like Live Mail and Photo Gallery have... that may yet come.

I tried it, but none of the folders in the "All Programs" menu of the start menu opened. Did I do something wrong?

As regards the start menu, I'm having problems when I set the icon size to be larger than 32px. Never mind, I've set it to 32 for now but I'd much rather them larger

Oh and I forgot. Otherwise it's a GREAT theme!

Thanks, I'm not sure exactly what you're talking about though. When I go to the properties of the start menu and do customize, I have Large selected and it all looks ok.

It's not something you'll find in a regular program. It's a free program called IconTweaker. Basically it's a free and easy way to change the icons on your machine.

Here's a screenshot of what I was talking about.. (note your style... looks great!)

Cool, thanks for that. Maybe I'll investigate it. I'm not really that into the skinning/tweaking stuff... but, I do appreciate the feedback.

If you check back in a few minutes, I should be adding the styler theme too.

Its really nice :) Unfortunately I hate that style of start menu, nothing wrong with it, just personal preference.

I kinda know what you mean. I don't know if we agree on style but, I've been thinking about changing it to be more XP like. The user icon sticking up off the menu like that, I find rather ugly.

I think its the fact that its just so huge, regardless of how many programs you have on the left hand side. I miss having Icons on the right, words are a step backwards to me.

and yes, the picture sticking out of the top is kinda ugly :P
