    themes and colors (xp)

    Where do I go to find more themes and colors (besides the boring silver, green, or blue ones) for Xp. Ive tried the Microsoft site, but they really dont have much. And I have tried to google some, but I cant find a good free site.

    If you wanted to spend a little money, the Stardock products are popular. The DesktopX part of their suite is $15 and the themes to download are mostly <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>

    I realize you probably know this already, but just in case, I thought I'd mention that if you choose "Windows classic style" (as I do) in Display Properties --> Appearance --> Windows and buttons, you lose the bubbly-looking menu bars and other XP-style touches but you gain back the same ability you had in Windows 98 and earlier to either choose from a large number of built-in color schemes or create your own color scheme by hitting the Advanced button in the Display Properties --> Appearance dialog and customizing the colors for the various interface elements.

    Perhaps it's obvious nowadays, but a lot of free stuff is a vehicle for advertising software or customized search toolbars, so read the small print carefully. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
