Frugus: Right click on your Object Bar icon in your system tray then select "Load" then "Theme Browser"

This will open the OB Theme Manager to "Available Themes". At the bottom of that list you will see "Windows XP (Use WindowBlinds Skin)" This is what you need to have selected.

Make sure that you have a WB XP aware skin befor you do this or else you will get some strange results.

Frugus: Forgot to let you know that once you have selected the "Windows XP (Use WindowBlinds Skin)" option a drop down box next to the delete/browse/load/close buttons will activate. Make sure that that drop down box is set to "Use WindowBlinds Skin" as well.

Chris: What is your Screen Rez?

Third Eye, its 1024 x 768, though I'll also take higher if you got it I can always scale it down or use it at a higher rez (got a nice 20 inch monitor at home but a crappy 14 inch laptop screen at work).

Third Eye: Wow, that sounds great, but as an Object Bar newbie, I have no idea on how to use the "Current WB Theme" how do I do it?

This is an excellent port! I've been using this Winstep theme for a week now. BTW is it possible to get that wallpaper? It's nice and simple and goes well with the theme.

Holy cr@p! I have been waitng to use OD for some time. I had used it a long time ago but the customization was always a pain in the a$$. I'll give it a shot on my XP box @ home. I would love to see this as an Xp skin!!! Good luck!

Frugus: Treetog's Olympic OS WB theme is XP compatable so if you set OB to use the "Current WB Theme" it will skin OB to match the WB Theme.

Valhalla: I know, I just couldn't bring myself to make it any thinner but I did do some testing and if you change NS's Endcap Metrics Height and Width to 16 it still looks pretty cool

I see an Object bar theme in the screen shot. Where might I find that?

Beautifully crafted Third Eye.
Congrats on the Featured Skin.

PS - Still unsure about the size of that Endcap
