    Ohh, That's bad. :cool:

    Well, at least this one works for you :D

    That's only for the classic theme that you can change the colours, isn't it?

    I primarily stick with the classic themes anyways. I never even bothered with the XP style over that. Vista no longer gives you some options like changing the 3D objects. You can change the theme, background, and have about 6 different color tones for the Start menu bar. That's another place Microsoft goofed there while making improvement on other things. :rolleyes:

    Lol, That's cool! I just don't like the whole 'grey' feel of it, it's not much to look at.

    I can choose the autohide option at any time there. But then I would miss the time, day of week, and date, and of course Start menu drop down while IE and W.Explorer windows are open. If you don't like one thing the way it looks you simply make a few changes in settings.

    I've seen those options before, It's rather cool but some of them are a bit hard on the eyes.

    I've neen running the translucent look in order to get accustomed to finding my way in the dark when moving around a little at a time. The screen there shows a list of styles to choose from by default. The main reason for having a different "look" is for distinguishing which version you are running!

    The problem at this end is the need for the Classic theme not so for the desktop but for the browsing of two hard drives with two explorer windows open at the same time. Even on Vista currently installed here the following screens will show a distinction where the Vista style has more of a tendency to overlap one window with the other until adjusted. With the Classic theme the window size is retained when set to restore in the folder options. For the Classic view,

    For the new Vista look,

    I guess I'm somewhat of a diehard and happy with the Classic look still even with Vista running here. :D

    But then you would be missing one or two items that make browsing a drive much easier namely the quick links seen under folders and the "+" sign seen next to them for looking and choosing the sub folders inside those.

    Always! It alows opening up other things while still being online or going through folders on one of the hard drives here. It's called "multitasking" :D even though I could use a dual core cpu instead of the current single core model now used. :(
