    I Currently use it on both of my computers, it can take a little getting used to but once you understand the basics its great. Its nice being able to have the desktop do what I want it to do.

    And endo if you think that it bloats windoze more, well than, well I can't think of a way to say what I want to without it sounding like a flame. It drasticly reduces the memory usage, on my XP box it takes about half the memory that explorer does

    Sounds like I should give it a try, I use XP too so it might do more than just make it look nice

    Hmm, sharpE looks interesting.

    I tried litestep for a while. It was pretty new then, so like all new things it was buggy. Had it on my computer for a couple months, then just went back to standard ol' explorer shell.

    It's a shell replacement for Explorer.exe

    Hard to explain farther than that, but basically it takes the Windows GUI that you know, and can change it around completely. I'm using SharpE now... taking a bit of getting used too. All my standard shorcuts are gone.

    If u post and/or contact them they will give u the directions for my computer, r-bin, all that stuff. All you have to do is assign the shortcut the value of the hex address for each, they have all the adresses handy, however.

    I still hafta re-install so if u get em could u post them for me? Thnx.

    Basically what I've been doing is just making new desktop items and assigning those to what I want.
