It's been a little while since I posted here... notice the new desktop picture desklet. :D

Desktop

Clicky Clicky Clicky!!!

EDIT

I just figured that since school is over and I don't have to work, I can get away with having something pretty to look at when I'm working at my desktop... a little colour on the icons doesn't hurt either.

Ok so here is my desktop, spent about a week trying to figure out how i wanted it to be, then a day (12 hours or so) working on the design and implementation of it.

Also the background image changes once an hour (on a timer), but no matter what because the side bars are transparent it always looks good. Of course it's all XPized too.

Screeny :D

Nice desktop. What is that sidebar/where can I get it? Also, how do you get your wallpaper to change every hour? Thanks.

Thanks ;)

The sidebar is a theme i made for samurize (http://www.samurize.com) - get that, and my theme is also on the site under the downloads section.

The wall paper changing, is part of the XP power toys pack - which can be found on Microsofts site, or through google.

@iCEhOT: You need this for complete XPizing :P Can you refer me to the file that holds the icon the inthe folders called "Jodeys PDA my documents" and "Pocket PC my DOcuments"? Is it a windows file, or you installed a third party app/driver?

Hey, the folders were placed on my desktop after installing ms activesync, and the software for my HP iPaq. If you want to know anything else about them, let me know. :)

@Rickie - Which VS do you use? I Like it.

I like dark visual styles. I have found one, but it's not good enough, so if anyone knows a good one let me know... :)

Where did you get the middle bottom picture in the Longhorn Wallpapers folder? Everything looks pretty nice, although I'm not much of a dark theme person myself.

There are a couple ways to get that effect, including stuff like some built-in nVidia tools, as well as having programs that simply have the feature built-in, but I prefer glass2k.

yes you are correct, I do that with Nview with my Nvidia card; but for me is very useful for msn and web surf at the same time.

Hey all,

I'm still very new to the windows visual customization theme, so I have a question. How do you get those the hard drive icon and status in Rickie and DBarras desktop (top right corner)?

Many thanks,
