Windows 7: Custom Image for Windows Borders, Taskbar, and Start Menu? 7 Ult. x64

Thank you SO MUCH! I've learned more than I'd initially expected, and I have you to thank.

The only downside to editing the images is that it changes all of the image #'s, so now I've got to guess at which is which (unless I'm missing something). Otherwise, I consider this one SOLVED!

Hopefully this thread can be of some help to others. When I'm done with this theme, I'll be sure to upload it for anyone who'd like to use it!

That's what's nice about Windows style builder you don't need to go by the numbers you go by the location.

I was looking through the forums and having some difficulty finding the information, so I've got just one more question for you, if you can:

Where can I find the images for the start orb background (I've already modified the start orb itself), the task icon background, and the clock background?

Basically, I've got the middle 80% of the taskbar re-skinned (and looking really cool, by the way, thanks to you), but apparently the left and right ends of the taskbar are controlled by a separate graphic.

What would be really helpful, if one exists, is an index of all of the image names, and a corresponding picture of exactly what and where it is in the OS.

In the meantime, I see you're over at virtualcustoms.net, so I'll register and maybe talk to you there!

You need for example the bottom task bar all the images should be the same these three locations.
Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBar > Aero > TaskBar > <1>
Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBand > Aero > TaskBand > BackgroundBottom
Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBand > Aero > TaskBand (SmallIcons) > BackgroundBottom


When you have the taskbar set to Always Combine, Hide Labels you can get the different colors on ends if that image at Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBar > Aero > TaskBar > <1> is not the same as the other two.
