Windows Themes: Ready to Change Your Desktop Theme

Parts 1 - 4

Thursday, March 29, 2007 by Island Dog | Discussion: Beginners

In the past few months I have written a series of articles on how to customize your desktop, and with the series wrapping up I wanted to put them into one source for easy reference. 

While these articles were based on skinning Windows XP, several of the applications can apply to Vista as well.  As more and more applications are made Vista compatible I will dedicate another series strictly for Windows Vista.
