    themes in WinXP Pro (WinXP Pro)

    hi --

    one of my favorite features in Win95 et al is Themes. While WinXP still has themes, the functionality has been greatly reduced ... i can no longer change parts of a theme using the GUI tabs (there are no previews or check boxes) ... can i install Themes.exe from the Plus pack and get back that functionality? also, there are a lot of theme changers on the web, but they only seem to apply to win95, 98 and me ... is there one that i can safely install for XP?

    also, i used to change the icons of my Drives using an autorun.inf file (that pointed to an icon) ... that doesn't seem to work with XP ... is there a way to change the icon for my C drive?

    thanks for any help in making my desktop more friendly looking!

    Steve,
    There are a TON of theme changers on the web, like Wincustomize, Windowblinds, etc, etc. Just do a google search for "XP themes" and I think there were some 305k hits. <img src=/S/bingo.gif border=0 alt=bingo width=15 height=22>

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    thanks i saw that, but was concerned because most of those programs were written years ago and are not explicitly for winxp ... (i'm just interested in a theme changer for all of the themes that i've accummulated over time, not re-inventing the windows gui) ... do you know of any changers for xp only?
