    In earlier Windows versions, u

    In earlier Windows versions, up to and including Win2K, once one had setup a desktop theme that was customized, that theme could be saved with a unique name. I'm referring to fonts and sizes, colors, etc., that are customized for ones own eyes, such as my lousey ones! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    I don't see a way to save a customized desktop in XP. Am I overlooking something? Everytime I make an adjustment, I have to go back and reset all of the fonts, etc. It's kind of a pain.

    Just wondering. Thanks for any thoughts.

    After making your changes try, right clicking the desktop and selecting "Save Scheme" and giving it a name and the pick "OK".

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    In Xp, once you have made your changes via RClick DT, Properties, Appearance, Advanced, then click the Themes tab and Save As...

    Thanks for the kind reply... I was looking in the wrong place, I think. I often have this kind of problem with new software.....Windows 2000 moved everything around from NT4 and that took me a little time also!
