hah tbird. good reason.

It must be possible, there are style programs out there that allow you to do so, including object desktop.

But, I think those programs hide the taskbar/disable it, and then use alternate menus to display things.

Who knows, I would look into it, but it does not interest me. Head over to www.stardock.com and check out their forum. Other than that, sorry.

TUTORIAL ON HACKING THE START MENU..
author: Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

ok here goes
open your resourceshacker.exe
open msstyle files located in c:\windows\resources\themes\luna\luna.msstyle
In resourceshacker.exe go to Bitmap > BLUE_STARTBUTTON_BMP > 1003. Then right click on 1033 and select delete..

If want to remove the little start menu ICON on the left corner then edit explorer.exe located in c:\windows\explorer.exe
In resourceshacker.exe go to Bitmap > 143 > 1033
select 1033 and delete it

Don't click save.. click "save as" because the file is being used. So just save as and load it with styleXP or Display Control.

This is the easiest way i know of hacking window without going though dos mode. You can change the font by editing the msstyles.

here's an example

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
