How much space does this take up and can I switch back to XP theme when I want?
Yes, it's an extra theme, so you can switch between them at any time. I'd imagine it doesn't take up much more than a few MB's (1 or 2?). However big the download size is, that's how much space it'll take up.

I tried to save it to my desktop and it wouldn't let me save it or open it up and i'm using Firefox. It says that I need to verify the contents and I can't do anything with it, any help?

The Styler Toolbar is found here:

Simply install it, follow the instructions on the site of how to get the Vista skin, They're very simple!

Select it, Restart your computer.

Open my Documents and right click the toolbar and select the styler toolbar then re-arange it where you want :) Simple!

Try saving it into a different place, like my documents.

Yeah, obviously, but I know there are a lot of people that are after this so I thought I'd post a thread about it, anyway, this doesn't affect performance, so why not have both :p

I was forced to remove several items like seeing IE 7 not able to open to the bottom of the screen when maximized. There are a few things there. But when wanting to remove something after the initial installation you restart and you simply check off items you want removed.

I guess I'm too much of a diehard for the "classics" by way of "Classic Windows"(ah yes! :D ) when going to open explorer windows and everything else. In Vista itself you have to get used to opening second windows at times while XP saw the screen change in one. Instead of simplifying things their attempt to glamourize the appearance can be an annoyance at times more then anything. :mad: gggrrrrr....

Nope, this one won't slow your computer down at all! Honestly, I wouldn't use it if it did!

PC Eye, Nothing doesn't work with this theme, it's all fine.

If you want to remove it you just select the old XP theme like normal, right click the desktop and then go to properties.

I ran the transformation pack with the extended options there and kept a few only. I'm kind of glued to the classic view for XP themes since Vista is already on one drive for multi OSing at the present time. I'll have to grab a screen of how this one looks.


Meanwhile what is scheduled to replace Vista themes? http://youtube.com/watch?v=xfdeNVtGO_A

Oh right, Yeah, the transformation pack does slow your computer down, I don't know why though.

I can't look at the video, YouTube is banned in college so I'll look later.

The admins here ban it because they think students will waste their time watching videos, I think it's right, they probably would.

You can get onto YouTube by missing off the www. but you can't watch any of the videos because they don't have the latest flash player here.
