I have a cool new desktop. I compiled all these images into an animation and it shows a different pic every 10 mins. I get bored of the same desktop pic! And yes they are all warcraft 3 backgrounds... the backgrounds are sooo high quality and beautiful! Like the one above!

I am glad to help.  First you will need two websites:

   www.themexp.org

   news.designtechnika.com/

The first site will give you a program called ThemeXP.  You will need this program to apply new skins/themes to Windows XP and there are themes on the site that look like Mac OS, but I believe ThemeXP comes with one.

The next site is where you can find YZDock, a program that acts like the Quicklaunch thingy in Mac OS.  Just install it and drag icons onto it.  There are many other things you can do with them but I trust you can figure them out.  Hope that helped.9.gif

Now that I have my computer up and running again, I thought I'd put this up:

/idealbb/files/lukeonia.jpg

When I use my computer I never use the Start menu or Desktop icons; My desktop itself is just a plain black background, with some icons in the corner. I run everything right off the .exe file from Windows Explorer (which I haven't closed in weeks) and the bar on the right side of the screen. At the time I took this picture, I was listening to some music, working on a novel, and puttering around in Photoshop. I didn't have SC4 running at the time, since I'm on a 450MHz machine that barely runs anything else while that game is open.

I've been thinking about putting a picture on my desktop to look at while my computer is starting up and shutting down, but I haven't been able to find the right one. Perhaps I'll look through deviantart.com some more. There are some incredible desktops there. I've also gotten a few ideas from you folks...

What did somebody mean when they said WindowBlinds was terrible?  WindowBlinds rulez...check out some of my screenshots in the other desktop discussion thread...I think it's on page 2 now, so I'll go resurface it and post some more pictures here.
 
By the way, is StyleXP free?

I love Empire Earth, Huskerman; do you have the expansion, The Art of Conquest?
 
BTW, nice desktop, Sharr, she's hot!
 
P.S.  There's a similar thread, just search for "What is your desktop theme?"
