I like that!  simple, creative, easy to organize, etc.  It extends the "desktop" metaphor.  Thanks for sharing!

 

Cheers and Regards

New monitor, new DreamScene in 3440x1440 goodness. To see the animated desktop, click the YouTube video link. :-)

Time for a new DreamScene. This time my journey brought me to Diessa Plateau (Guild Wars 2). Something special this time is that it is recorded during dawn time, which only lasts 5 minutes. (Day lasts 70 minutes in-game and night 40 minutes.)

Monitors. They just keep getting wider and wider, don't they?

Here's mine:

At first glance, you might say it's XP with a windows 7 Ultimate caption in the start menu, but it's not! This is a genuine Windows 7 Ultimate desktop, tweaked to look as close to XP as I can make it.

Tweaks used:

I also took icons from a real XP installation and applied them over their 7-based counterparts.

The only thing I need to work on is the system tray. It still uses the okay, but bland looking 7 icons. I want the XP icons there too, but I haven't learned how to do it, yet.

7+ Taskbar Tweaker

With 7+ Taskbar Tweaker you can reduce the space between tray icons to the same space as in XP (it is a hidden option, accessible via registry).

Really? I never thought of that possibility!

Based on some basic Googling, it appears that I should begin by tweaking tray_icons_padding.

I haven't touched it for awhile, but with this new information, perhaps I'll revisit it and see if I can refine it some more.

The next step after this would be to get Windows Explorer windows (particularly the toolbars and address bar) to look more XP-like.

Thanks!

It should be 2 for Win95-WinXP appearance.

Hi,

The OPs Windows 7 desktop looks quite nice,

and the classic XP/2000 desktop is an interesting concept
