    whats the actuall name of those little menu's? Also does anybody have any idea how to change the colors on it, on the orginal xp theme it's all blue with green and such. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

    Do you mean the common task folders....and not sure on how to change the colour scheme except to d/l a theme or visual style.

    XP refers to those menus as 'common tasks' and they can be toggled by right clicking my computer, going to the advance tab, and proceeding to performance settings (top section).

    andy_rose (like most of the time) is correct, shellstyle.dll is the file that affects the colors and looks of that side menu along with background color, highlight color, and so on.
