    What does your desktop look like? Check this out!

    Hey guys,

    Heres a pic of mine, nothing special. Just simple and easy on the eyes! Changed the logos so that they look a bit better, my computer, the folders etc. The picture is just a slate i made with "impact 106 fm" on it, which is the radio station i own. Oh and also... i changed the colour of the start button!!!

    GO ON! YOU KNOW YOU WANNA FIND OUT HOW I CHANGED IT!!!

    hey when you change the folders to blue do you have to do each one individually or can you change them all at the same time?

    I'm interested in knowing how you did that myself, if you wouldn't mind sharing. I like the blue start button, that's not something you see everyday.

    Peace,

    hit print screen when youre at your desktop and it will copy it to the clipboard, and then you paste it in paint and save it.

    I'm not allowed to post how to do this, or are you upset you won't get any more pm's that make you feel special?


    I took down the guide so you can still get your attention, .

    This is a complete guide to hacking your start button. This guide
    will only tell you the steps to changing the color, not the text or image.
    For changing the text or image, go to:

    http://www.techtv.com/screensavers/w...661576,00.html

    Step one:

    Download the windows uxtheme patch from:
    http://www.softpedia.com/public/cat/13/9/13-9-100.shtml

    after instal, windows will tell you to restore the original file, ignore,
    you WANT to replace a windows system file!

    and also download ResHacker from:
    http://www.users.on.net/johnson/resourcehacker/

    side note: you will need to personally modify the color of your start button, i have made a black one,
    you can download it here:
    http://users.rowan.edu/~marz7821/ima...t%20button.bmp

    After you install all of those items, restart your computer.

    Step two:

    Go to C:\windows\resources\themes\ and copy the luna folder and luna.theme to your desktop.
    change the name of the folder to "mine" without the quotes.
    Also change the name of luna.theme to mine.theme. Open up your new folder called mine.
    You will see a file called luna.msstyles, change it to mine.msstyles. Close all folders.
    Go to the file mine.theme, that you renamed earlier, open it using notepad. Click edit, replace.
    Find every existence of the word luna in the file and change it to mine, there should only be 2 changes.


    Open mine.msstyles using ResHacker (its in your mine folder on your desktop),
    open folder bitmap, then scroll down to either BLUE_STARTBUTTON_BMP or
    METALLIC_STARTBUTTON_BMP or HOMESTEAD_STARTBUTTON_BMP depending on what
    color task bar you have.

    Open that resource. Click action, replace bitmap. select the bitmap of the new start button you have
    made, click replace, again, you may use the black one i created, or create your own.

    Click save and exit resource hacker. Copy the "Mine" folder and Mine.theme into directory:
    C:\windows\resources\themes There should now be 2 folders in there, the old luna folder and the folder you made,
    called mine. close all windows. Right click on your desktop and go to properties, click on the
    theme tab, under the list of themes, you should see 2 that say Windows XP, your new start button
    is one of those 2 choices. Enjoy.

    I am not responsible for you screwing up your system.

    Yea found that too, just think start does the job? I can just imagine changing it something dumb them messing it up so that it stays changed.

    I think start will do just nicely!
