How did you put your window media player on taskbar? HELP!

I used a modified version of this with rainmeter :)
JeremyGreen933's avatar
Yeah I already have this, but this is only for desktop. When I open a window or something, It stays on desktop I want it on my Taskbar. So I can use it while i'm doing other things.

is there a way i can edit the colors of the menu highlights and accent colors from orange/purple/green to blue? i have restorator and tons of time to edit bitmaps if necessary.... also thank you for the update with the white background and black text. in the earlier version i loved the grey background but the font was unreadable on installers and some menus :/ is there a way to change that back to grey with white text? again thank you, i can tell lots of hard work has went into this project.

nevermind, i got windows style builder and am editing the colors myself now. wp7 blue mango :)
thanks, i liked much

Hey thanks bro, this is awesome. For all those with *64, just use theme resource changer, don't use the system files, just copy entire contents of theme to C:Windows\Resources\Themes, then double click wp7glass.theme. This will install the theme and if you use black glass enhanced it provides you with completely transparent system. Also, use mactype font changer, to get the font just rite. I must say, this theme is awesome thank you, the fine detail and time you put into this makes it super. Using it on my win7 Home Premium *64.

i cant get the fully transparent version working... any ideas?
chop007's avatar
Yeh, just make sure black glass enhanced is running, and you have installed a program called theme resource changer. Then, you just unzip the and throw the files in c:windows/resources/themes. Then double click on the .theme file. Also make sure you have patched your system files but when you install theme resource changer it should do it automatically.

An easier way is just to install skin pack, a program that installs visual styles in the form of a skin pack. If you type skin pack installer system in google you can go and download it. Then just also download fullglass skin pack. Once that pack is installed just change themes like you usually would in win7 right click desktop, personalize, then select wp7 mango transparent/whatever. Then you will also get that wp7 trasparent. 2 methods, either will work.
