    Ok heres my problem:

    I want to install a theme, and I want it to look like it does in the screen shot. In the screen shot it shows that the start bar is different, and located at the top of the screen. So I installed the DLL patch, and that other program needed, but it still doesn't work..

    Does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong? :confused:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

    If you unlock the taskbar (right click taskbar, uncheck lock the taskbar)

    Then you can drag the taskbar to the top, side, bottom, whatever.

    CLICK AND HOLD the taskbar and drag, release when it is where you want it.

    Ohh, that's a toolbar. Like the quicklaunch bar.

    Right click taskbar
    Toolbars
    Check Quick Launch

    Now make sure your taskbar is unlocked
    Grab the qlaunch bar by one of the two | on either side, then drag it up to the top.
    Right click the qlaunch toolbar
    Go to view
    Check large icons
    Lock taskbar again

    StyleXP. Lightstar only makes .themes and .msstyles for StyleXP/PatchXP/uxtheme.dll hacks.

    Yep, I've already have those installed... So your saying that the other little bar that displays the system memory would be windows blind if I'm correct?


    /EDIT: I have it now :D

    do you have a screen shot of what you have and what you want your desktop to look like ? I can help you out and maybe give you a theme to go with your background

    Open paint & save the bmp as a jpg. Smaller than a bmp. Then click post reply when in a thread. On that page you can attach the jpg by navigating to it on your hard drive.
