Yet another great skin. Somebody is gifted! I was wondering....Can WinStep be edited or components (like the start button) or modified? Are there any tutorials about this?

Anyhow, I absolutely love your skins, and what the organization my wayof shelves and Nexus does for my computing/work environment.

Keep up the great work, please! �����

Hi Dr.J., thanks for the thumbs up and yes, you can modify components of the skin. There are some (old) skinning tutorials at

and a few guidelines in the Winstep Forums at


which should help you get started. You should also read the skinning section of the NextSTART and WorkShelf User Guides to know which bitmaps do what.

Hi Rzarusty!

First you will have to download and install Winstep Xtreme from the Winstep Web Site (or you can download it directly through

There is also a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) for the NextSTART and WorkShelf components of Winstep Xtreme in the Winstep Forums.

Hope this helps. �

JcRabbit, is your Wallpaper available anywhere?
Comment #10 Thursday, March 01, 2007 5:23 PM
Not sure I understand your question, Jimmy, but if you are asking me where I got that wallpaper, there is a great site full of free stock photos that can become amazing wallpapers here: Stock.XCHNG. Most photos are free to use, but it's always nice to email the authors asking for permission or to let them know where you will be using their work.

If, on the other hand, you are asking me if you can use the wallpaper in this theme for other stuff, no problems with me. Just email me at so I can give you the email address of the person that took the original photo - he likes to be notified whenever his photos are used for something.

thanks for the link JcRabbit, im not currently creating anth,i just like the wall.

I do have one oth Q. i really like the cpu meter and how it shows top 4 processes. If i just wanted that i still would need Winstep? I havnt installed Winstep but if i do, i notice it includes NextSTART, WorkShelf, NeXuS and Font Browser. Do i have to have them all running to use this cpu meter?

Yes, but since you haven't tried Winstep Xtreme yet, let me tell you that all Winstep modules do things regular widgets don't. For instance, besides synchronizing the time, the clock module also speaks it, the email module is multi-account and allows you to monitor IMAP as well as the usual POP3 accounts (and it supports SSL too, therefore you can also monitor G-Mail accounts), the Net Meter can display which applications are currently connecting to the Internet plus an impressive array of TCP/IP stats, etc...

Anyway, give Winstep Xtreme a try and see for yourself. �

i notice it includes NextSTART, WorkShelf, NeXuS and Font Browser. Do i have to have them all running to use this cpu meter?

No, just WorkShelf (and NeXuS, which, like the desktop modules, is also part of WorkShelf).

Comment #16 Wednesday, April 04, 2007 11:01 PM
ty, im going to have a look. but ok 1 more,

I notice u use zone alarm. If i had a wish-list for zone alarm it would be, to be able to tell the diff between network traffic, and internet traffic.

Can net meter differentiate between network activity, and internet activity?
Comment #17 Thursday, April 05, 2007 10:06 AM
Actually that screenshot was taken in one of the PC's here. Personaly I don't use Zone Alarm, I use the late (sigh) Sygate Personal Firewall Pro, which was recently taken over by Symantec and killed. Before that, I was using AtGuard which was also - guess - purchased by Symantec and killed (double sigh!).

Typical: if you're a large corporation like Symantec and your competition is giving you trouble, then buy them off and kill their product.

Anyway, you should be able to tell the difference between LAN traffic and Internet traffic because all the IP addresses used for local traffic are private (e.g.; 192.168.x.x).

Comment #19 Saturday, April 07, 2007 6:52 PM
okay. after downloading this file, i don't know what to do after opening the .zip file. i have winstep open and running, but i don't know what to do around applying this theme. can someone help? ��thanks.
Comment #20 Sunday, April 08, 2007 7:34 AM
Open the NextSTART or WorkShelf Themes tab in preferences. If you have downloaded the theme zip file to the \Winstep\AutoInstall folder, all you have to do is click on the Import button (the one with the box icon) and the app will automatically install it. If not, you will first have to provide the path to where the theme zip file was downloaded. Once the theme has been imported, it will be available from the Load Theme list box at the left. Select the theme and press the OK button in Preferences to apply it.

Next release (Winstep Xtreme 7.4, which is still in beta and will be out very soon now) theme files will have an .xtreme extension and can be automatically installed and applied simply by double clicking on them. �
