WindowsXP Color Schemes
 
This may be a stupid question, but...

Id like to use the WindowsXP-style windows & buttons, but have the ability to modify the colors of windows, boxes, etc., like youve always been able to do in previous Windows versions by clicking "advanced" under Appearance tab.

Im not after whole new themes or skins; Id basically just like to use WindowsXP look and feel but with Windows2000 colors. Is there an application I can download that will allow me to do this? Or any other way?

Thanks in advance.

Hmmm... I'm not sure I understand the question. Under XP home you can still change the colors by clicking "advanced" under Appearance tab then select what part of the window you want to change

If that doesn't do the trick for u, try the program called WindowBlinds

hm, you could use the Mighty uxtheme.dll patcher and use ThemeXP skins without ThemeXP...

I think that might only work if you're using the "Windows Classic" theme. Best bet would be to use the uxtheme.dll patcher or download an already patched copy of this file. Make sure the one you get is for the particular version of XP you're running (which should be Service Pack 1).

Thats correct. You can only change the title bars and such if youre using Classic. You can set the colors different under "XP" scheme, but when you hit "Apply", nothing happens; the only thing you can actually change is the desktop color.

Thanks for advice.
