Here is the start menu.
I will start next week on the Explorer window there are so many elements to it I will probably do it in stages (a few areas at a time).

Jerry,
Thanks for this.
By the way, what's the difference between "hot" and "hover" because I can't tell which is which.

Hot and hover are just about the same, hot can be if something is active or if you move the mouse over it where hover is just a hover. I make hot and hover the same image when making a theme.

Here is a another hint on the trackbar track the image is 3 by 3 pixels in each pixel controls that track the very middle pixel is the center of the track all the outside pixels control the outside of the track and each pixel is relative to his position in the track if you would color one corner different than the others just a corner would be that color.

The only way I know how to is with Windows Style Builder it's a fill color not a image.

General Questions
Hey Guys, I recently installed Windows 7 RTM on my Netbook and its running perfectly. I've only got a few questions though, when I startup my computer I'm not given the fancy windows 7 boot screen but instead the old Windows vista loader. Is there anyway to fix this?
