Extremely cool desktop! You can't go wrong with such a cool background plus token icons.
Nice job Jerry.
BTW, how did you get the small icons on the left taskbar to use only the top part of it and to organize them in two rows?

PS: Just received all the parts for a new build! Will update specs and upload desktop as soon as I have it up and running and I'm done customizing.
Which brings up a question: Lately I have been unable to customize x64 sytem tray dll's. As soon as I hack them and replace any icons, they just fail to start. Haven't had this problem before. Any ideas?

I used this Quick Launch - Enable or Disable to get the icons that way on the taskbar, once you get the shortcuts in the quick launch folder with the taskbar unlocked then you grab the little dotted line and drag them up or down to get the position you want then grabbed the edge of the taskbar and drag the taskbar out to get the double row of icons, the farther out you drag the taskbar the more rows you will have.

When you are trying to change the icons in the system tray are you changing the .dlls in both C:\Windows\System32 and C:\Windows\SysWOW64?

Thanks for the tip.
Regarding the .dlls, yeah I'm changing them in both places. Strange, it used to work just fine.

BTW, this is my current desktop, not many changes.
