Make sure you can provide links to the visual style/wallpaper and any other listed items so in order for people to be able to get the item if they like it.

The whole purpose of this thread is to provide a place where if you are looking for a new wallpaper or a new style for windows (or even mac/osx) you can come in here and check out other members setups, then if you like a item from their screenshot you can download the item if the link is provided or you can request it from that person.

In order to use a .msstyle file (visual style / VS) you may need to get a 3rd party application called StyleXP. This application allows you to apply visual styles very easily without patching your system files but it does cost a few dollars.

Without StyleXP to use non microsoft visual styles in windows you would need to ‘alter’ (patch) one of your system files. Fortunately a patcher has been developed so it can be done for you without you going into the system files and adjusting anything.
Neowin UXTheme Multi-Patcher.**

I suggest though if you use this method, before you apply the patch to make a backup of** ‘Themeui.dll’** found in your windows/system32 folder just to be on the safe side. Just copy it elsewhere other than the system32 folder and rename the extention to something like themeui.bak, so windows does not do anything strange.

In the case you find a .wb file, that is a theme for a application called windowblinds. This is somewhat like Stylexp in terms of an application that handles themes but allows for more extensive skinning features, the newer versions of the application allows for transparency and other neat user interface features like changing folder copy/move animations but it does unfortunetly take a little of your system resources.

… more F.A.Q will be added through the month.

Comments:[COLOR=Black] Having issues with a nvidia driver and my new 8800gtx, didnt let me change my desktop to something other than the generic tiles so i kept the same from last month, might update it during the month though, i did change my visual style to a new one called slan, its not bad but not a favourite. We’ll see how it goes.
