    Please move this if it isn't in the right spot. And I believe its the taskbar, right beside the Start Menu button. How can I change that color? In Windows XP Pro, there is only three color schemes, but I just want to change the task bar color only to red. Is that possible?

    Thanks a lot. I shall download them. When I do, where do I instal these files too? Do I put them in a folder where all of the other themes are located or can I download it anywhere and it will work? I guess probably reading the website would help as well...hehe, thanks.

    Keep in mind that while XP was designed to be "skinnable" and many users have no problems at all with third party theme / skin programs, others have nothing but trouble. Some of the programs (I believe Windows Blinds is high on the list) are more ill-behaved than others.

    patchxp will patch your uxteme.dll, so that it accept non microsoft themes. So you dont have to install that one. Style xp ist anormal program that you can install anywhere and use very easy, but its not free, but my favorite and windows blinds is kinda like stylexp but takes more memory

    So there is no simple way to just change the color without using a brand new theme? I know some things colors can be changed, but it doesnt appear like this can be.
