    I bought Windowblinds 5 the other week and installed Kol's Vista theme. It looks great, but I preferred how the Bricopack (www.crystalxp.net) changed the taskbar (the bar at the side in windows, such as system tasks, music tasks etc) to sit vertically rather than horizontally [EDIT: I mean t'other way!]. I did notice that in the extras folder of Kol's skin there were two files (shellsomething_green.dll, shellsomething_blue.dll) to change this - but how do you do it?

    Secondly, I have icons to change the back/forward etc to a more Vista style than Kol's skin does - how would I go about changing those?

    Is it possible in Windowblinds?

    Cheers,

    Alex.

    Right... getting somewhere now.

    A mate of mine sent me Styler toolbar, which is great (and worth $10 I reckon) to change the toolbar style.

    But still want to change the explorer tasks pane... How would I go about changing it?

    Here's a pic of how I'd like it, ideally: http://www.crystalxp.net/galerie/img/th2_130.jpg
