@phex. how do you get the transparent look man...btw....great shot of your desktop

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,

phire

Nice Desktop. Please post desktop screenshots in the topic for the current month. Since it is now May, you should post here ;) .

I like the calendar. How did you get it?

Wow... that's a really bright desktop...I dunno... but yellow just doesn't suit computers. Fast cars and motorcycles, sure... but yellow Windows just doesn't seem to work... :P

Pretty cool that you were able to get that going on Win98 though... I thought that you were pretty much limited to changing your wallpaper.

Regarding the question about icons for AveDesk, you can find lots of them on DeviantArt and just by using Google. Do a bit of searching and you can find hundreds.

Finally got the Start button changed too. Took a while but nothing like trying to do things with MS stuff to mess around with your head.

(edited 7:50pm, hope it works this time)
