Er, how do I change the themes in windowsXP? do I need a special app? They all seem to cost money and I am sooo getting sick of blue, silver, and (ug) green.

You can dowload themes off the net. They usually also state how they should be installed.

Here's a link to a cool site for XP themes :

www.themexp.org (http://www.themexp.org)

Wot! We're expected to pay for that junk! I have my desktop set Windows classic, and that's that.

What's next? Am I going to have to get my credit card out everytime I want to change something in control panel of MY computer.

They're known a "third-party programs". Wow! Paying money for programs? That's unheard of :rolleyes:

>"third-party programs".

I don't consider the ability to change the colours on my desktop a third-party program. Even if M$ has contrived to deny the configuration setting, so that you need a third-party program to set it.

From the website: New 3-D enhanced themes create an amazingly detailed and lifelike environment that reflects your style and mood during work or play.

What a load of rubbish!

>No, its not free

I don't care. I won't be using it.
