hi,

i would like to have a black taskbar in xp without having to install a theme.

is it possible to just make that? or does someone already has one

its just because i want to change my desktop a bit but not too much

i think you can edit the theme file with skinstudio.. should beable to anyway..

might have to work on it in safe mode tho.. save, restart and it should load the edited one.

Don't think so without a theme pack.

Crystal XP is a theme pack which i use and uses hardly any resources..... and you get a black taskbar and it looks slick.

Wrong.

I have a solution for you, sir.
It takes up no more resources than regular skin, so no worries.

http://www.softpedia.com/progDownloa...load-2369.html
Download that, run it, and then if you want to have a better skin...

http://www.themexp.org/preview.php?m...medesc=VistaFX

That is an example of a visual style, just click on the one you need and SHEBANG!

New skin.
