    That's not recommended for people of his age.

    How do you do that trick, that's cool

    I need to start doing some of this modding and theme changing stuff. Do you guys all use WindowBlinds?

    I don't. I hate it to be honest. Some people love it though, mainly cause you can get the transparency that's supposed to be in Vista, now.

    Although it was MUCH better in regards to resource intensive, I don't like apps like that installed on my PC. What did you do to change your icon set?

    There are some nice things about it, but I'd always rather do things myself instead of letting another program do it.

    Correct. Although if you want the big icons there is also a registry hack that you can use. It's what I used to use back in 2002 :p

    1. Start up regedit.
    2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\desktop\WindowMetrics
    3. Change the value for WindowMetrics to either 16, 24, 32, 48, 64, 72, 96, or 128.

    Based on what number you choose, your icons will be XX x XX. So if you choose 128, they will be 128x128.

    Keep in mind all of your icons will be the size you choose. That's why it's just easier to use AveDesk, and have large icons only on the desktop.
