    you can set it up how you want it and save the theme so that you can back it up or just save it by right clicking on your desktop, clicking personalize and ten clicking Theme

    other than that i'm not quite sure

    I use this site:
    http://www.wincustomize.com/
    for all custom skinning of Windows appearance. Navigate through the menu along the right side for custom skins/themes for just about everything.

    You would definitely need software to modify the look of your desktop or to create your own themes. A very popular one is WindowBlinds.

    It's Vista-ready, and the trial period is very generous.
