Description

When you pick out something to wear in the morning, you choose the clothes that best fit your mood and personality that day. Same with the music we listen to and even the cars we drive. We instinctively surround ourselves with the things that are reflective of our personalities, so why not our computers? Skinning Windows XP will show you how to take the Microsoft Windows Graphical User Interface to a whole new visual and functional level. Through step-by-step instructions, you will learn how to customize your Windows XP theme, icons and backgrounds using skinning software. Not sure what skinning software is or where to find it? You'll learn about that, too. You will become familiar with the Windows desktop structure and components and learn how to alter the elements to create a personalized desktop experience. Along with a 16-page, full-color insert with before and after shots of skins for inspiration, Skinning Windows XP will help you technologically express yourself.
