Default Change XP Skins

I wanted to change my skins for XP to spice up my computer but I downloaded SkinStudio and whenever I changed something it didn't save and I couldn't apply the changes to the skin.

The crap was hard to figure out as it is because the "tutorial" they give you is so NOT descriptive.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Heeeeeeeeeelppppppp meeeeeee!!!!!

rollincatera "also try windowsblinds. "

I have windowsblinds and you can't change the colors or anything unless you pay for it. I don't have any money to pay for a color on a window border.

Be VERY careful downloading windows themes and skins. Read the EULA's PLEASE!!!

NOT all of these are *clean* but 99% of them are. READ the EULA's that come with them. Liz
