GUI Customization Resources and Tutorials: Themes, Icons, Docks etc.

Make sure the theme/visual style is stored in C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes

Then you will be able to access it from the Display Properties applet or you can double click the MSSTYLES file to apply it.
Thanks madmatt, always a big help! Rep. By the by, would anyone know where to get a good theme of vista?

I've been given permission to post this by Electronic here goes...

Been working on a nice Windows Customization website:


The site contains free Windows Vista/XP themes, icons, screensavers and wallpapers available to give your pc the most unique look available. As with all my other sites, only the best resouces in each category are picked for inclusion.

I think you guys will enjoy this site ;) Comments much appreciated.
what is the easiest and most efficient way to change icons in vista? and what is the best place to find icon packs for this?

I've been able to change everything else but haven't found a good enough icon program that I trust or good enough icons to use.
I downloaded a lot of windows vista themes lately, and the site with the (my opinion) best themes, is this vista themes site! Check it out if you also are looking for new fresh vista themes, they update regularly to :)

Any of the SP crew still out there?
