yah, its really good, but I cant use it because I think your msstyles file is the XP version, i dont know, we need .theme files, I think, but it needs an update to work, I think, again. Also you didnt include how to use instructions, but it looks REALLY good.
There is no .theme file included in the download. How can I create one or apply the theme? Thank you
Can you tell me please which gadget is that with the cpu info and the one below?

It looks alot like a re-vamped version of the Windows Aero theme. The main difference is the transparency and color. :unimpressed:

Yea I see. Does a bit of what I mean :) How hard is it to edit the color of the blinking taskbar tab when a program blinks. Been searching for some time how to edit that. It's always orange. :)

Pyttt's avatar
