Well thats it for part 3.  If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to ask, and for those who are skinning with me, if you want me to go

slower, please tell me as well, I dont mind waiting a few days.

Next tutorial will cover the taskbar, taskbar buttons, the start button, system tray and the system tray arrow and the taskbar gripper! *phew! * lol

Thank you so much for alerting us to the glitch in Skin Studio regarding the UIS2 close button.  That was a mystery that was driving me insane since last year.  Now I have a bunch of updates to my skins to work on.

do you by any chance know how the animation builder works or do you know of any guides / tutorials or such? it's just not there.

See if this helps you get started:   https://forums.wincustomize.com/316609

Basically, you make a series of frames for the animation, put them together in a strip, which can be done with the sub frame builder in Skin Studio, or you could get something like AniUtil (in this thread: https://forums.wincustomize.com/60485), save the strip as a .tga file in the skin folder, then open up Start Menu Animation Builder, then click the drop down arrow for your first layer of animation and navigate to the strip .tga you made, then adjust the margins and the animation rate, finally click close, apply the skin and Bob's-your-uncle, as they say.

If you PM AVman, he's my opinion of an animating god, and he's always been very helpful to me.  If I wasn't so bogged down with other things in my life right now, I'd write a tutorial, myself.
