I’m really at a lost here feeling ridiculously stupid & frustrated. For months & months now I have been trying to download different themes onto my computer & have not had any success at all. Repeatedly, I’ve tried downloading what I think is the right patch (PatchXPsp1, I have Windows XP Version 2002) I need, I downloaded multiply themes from www.belchfire.net & when I tried to run them NOTHING appears in my Display Properties window. It’s like the PatchXPsp1 isn’t working or something & believe me I’ve tried this many times; I’d try, give up for a few weeks, & then go back & try it all over again just to get myself all frustrated. I love the idea of change themes & there’re some really neat ones out there, but either it’s something in this machine that be known to me is prevent me from changing & getting new themes <or> I just don’t get it? So I thought, screw it I’ll create my own theme by changing some things under Appearance – Advanced – Item in the Display Properties Window. It was here that I learned that certain Items that I attempted to make changes in would not take when I clicked “Apply” & could someone maybe tell me why? The “Desktop” color did change, the “Selected Item” color did change, & the “Tooltip” color did change, however the “3D Object” & “Active title Bar” color will NOT change. I was wonder if anyone here may have any suggestions or what am I doing wrong? Ideally I’d like to figure out why I can’t run new themes on my computer, but maybe I should surrender lol. At least I would like to know why I’m being limited in manually making changes to my desktop appearance.
