Question Win XP Colour themes

Anybody know where I can get basic color theme variations for Windows XP besides Blue, Olive, and Silver?

I am not interested in getting any WindowsBlind themes with all new icons, objects, etc, and I don't wish to install TGTSoft's ThemeXP, I just want some different color variations of the Luna theme, eg. Longhorn's Slate would be nice...even though there are some around on the web for that, but what about other colors.

Make your own? It's very easy and won't take you that long, plus it's customized to your own liking. (is that the right spelling?)

If you ever have any questions feel free to email me at, I will send you back an email as soon as possible.

Try StyleXP. My current style does not change my icons or anything like that. And you can download themes from .

If you're talking about the basic ones built into XP, do this.

Go into display properties (from control panel or right click on desktop)
Click on the Appearance Tab
In Windows and Buttons Make sure Windows XP Style is selected
Under Color Scheme choose which one you want.

I guess I should read the original post closer before replying. Ignore what I just wrote. My bad.......
