Heh heh yeah the table is pretty cluttered. And you know I really hate plastic ><;; I truly believe that the entire country of Taiwan is made out of o_o plastic.. however I can't get away from my race no matter how hard I try. And yes I try to keep things look "new" even when it's not possible.

I've thought of this before too.. one question: how can you remove the taskbar? or did you just move and auto-hide it?

YKK Wallpaper! Nice one! Actually, almost all of us moderators are big fans of that series. Curiously none of us told the others about it, we all found it on our own. I find that an interesting coincidence that tells me something about the people who that manga appeals to.

Here's my current desktop. Note that I have my taskbar on auto-hide, so it doesn't normally cover up the top of my wallpaper like that, but I wanted you to see a bit more of my skin.

I have lots of different logon screens, but not many anime ones, so If someone could maybe post a cool link to some, that would be great.
Anyway, enjoy..............

I'm really a newb to the whole modify-your-desktop or create-new-logon-screens. Could anyone tell me what programs you use to customize ur desktop layouts, toolbars, and startup screens? Thx in advance.

@ Ambience Blue & Oneesama

www.stardock.com (Search for WindowBlinds -ignore the rest)

After that, it's one-stop pit-stop at www.wincustomize.com

@ ARNEL98

ObjectDesktop, I see.

I disagree, Style XP from TGT soft is a WAAY better theme manager. It has built in function such as allowing you to change your start screen, loading screen, wallpaper, themes, etc.

Doesn't hog alot of resources, and therefore themes are alot better than windowblinds IMO.

Sure windowblinds has awsome themes, but can you say resource hogger?

http://www.themexp.org/

Note: visual styles and themes are the same

I also like stylexp better.. mainly because it uses less resources since it is built upon window's existing theme system. I have'nt tried any stardock products lately though. I reccomend Aston over window's blinds if you want to replace the entire shell.

wb doesnt really use much resources starting with 4.0. On my system, it actually consumes lower resources than sysmetrix.

Too bad that the 'Start-menu' equivelant isn't as good, handling the menu options and transitions quite badly. Does StyleXP work on Win2k, make windows transparent, and skin the start-menu too? If so, I might say 'goodbye' to WB.

Could anyone tell me how to put a calendar on the desktop? Just like the one that ARNEL98 has. Do I need a program for it? I'm using WindowBlinds too btw.
