The only problem I see right now is after loading the WB the color of your description has turned to white and you cannot read it. This is the place where I see this happening so far. could you also let me know where I can find your wallpaper file.

Thanks to all for the kind words. Sargan, If you are talking about the description on this web page, here's what you need to do. If you are using Firefox, click on Tools > Options > Colors. There are 2 check boxes on the bottom left, 1) Use System Colors and 2) Allow Page to Choose....... You can't tick both of these or you have the problem you are experiencing. Tick ONLY Use System Colors if you want Firefox to use Stainless Steel for your web pages. Tick ONLY Allow Page to Choose... if you want web pages to use their own colors. Again, don't tick both. FYI: I use system colors 99% of the time. I tick the other one on oages where its sometimes difficult to read the drop-down boxes or some other details. Last note. If you tick Use System Colors, you may need to make new selections for the colors used for Unvisited and Visited links. This is done on the same panel as the 2 check boxes referred to above. Another FYI: I use white for Unvisited and gray for Visited. Explorer does not give you these options. Let me know if this doesn't solve the problem for you. Thanks.

The WP is included with the compatible DX Theme. I have now added the link for this in the description above.

I use IE7 so can I make these same changes using microsoft explorer or can I only make the correct changes if I use Firefox. Let me know and thanks for the quick response to my question

Sargan. I just figured it out for Explorer. Don't know why I was unsuccessful previously. Anyway, open Explorer, click on Tools (the gear icon), at the bottom left of the General Page, click on colors and then UNCHECK "Use Windows Colors". Select new colors as needed (might not be necessary, test first after clicking OK). Again, let me know if this doesn't solve the problem. Robert

great skin is great!!! well, finally skinners don't just make transparent-vista-look-alikes, and you even managed to get the feeling of tranparency with the steel borders without any glass-like stuff, these gaps are looking great! well, i think talented skinners have once again regain to ability to create unique skins. even though i'm not one who can make skins with my lack of talent at artistic stuff, i still feel proud of you for some unknown reason

Sargon, happy to hear that resolved the problem. Thanks again to all for the words of encouragement. And to Luuucc, I understand completely. That's why we're all here, to have choices that Windows by itself doesn't give us. Thanks for at least checking it out. Robert

first off, i think your work is great. i love metallic themes. i find that they are a bit too "busy". the background texture with the bright blue leaves me struggling to see at times. I can't create anything close to this so please don't be offended. I'm just a user giving you my input.
