    Transparent XP Menu?

    I was wondering how people are able to fade their Window XP menu and toolbar. Can someone help me?

    If you are wondering how I did this: http://www.animeonline.net/gallery/s...cat=505&page=1

    I used a program called "StyleXP" from TgTsoft (http://www.tgtsoft.com)

    The program is a Skinning program that uses XP's own visual style engine to chage the look of the operating system

    Its pretty cheap program, and the shear volume of visual styles that you can get are amazing.

    Info: If you use Themes in XP you have to replace your uxtheme.dll with a patched version...otherwise your PC will be very slow after installing a new theme...

    And you donĀ“t have to use StyleXP for Skins...they can also be used by other proggies and also by winXP itself...

    Just google for "Uxtheme.dll patch"...

    Wow, thanks. That was exactly what I wanted to do.
