GUI Editing

  1. Does anyone know anything about editing the windows GUI? Basically what I want to do is change the color of my start menu/bar and possible the icon for the start menu button. I know there are programs out there to do this but I don't feel like paying $50 to it, and most of them are not compatible with my OS( XP x64 edition).

    Just guessing on this as I have the themes service disabled and I don't fiddle with my GUI schemes, but, try:

    Right click desktop > Properties > Appearance (see what it lets you do here) > Advanced.

    yeah I've done that before, I forgot to say it but I meant XP themes not the classic. I found the code of classic so I could edit other parts of it but the XP style is stored some where else.
