Windows 7: Media key look?

Media key look?

Hi everyone! Sorry for posting this in the general discussion but i didnt really know where it would go..
Well i wanted to know if there was a program that could change how the media keys look..
For example i have a dell studio xps 1647 and right above the keyboard i have these touch sensitive keys that control volume, play forward etc .. (no need to press fn.. )
whenever i press the button to increase volume, a volume bar comes up on my screen.. it looks really ugly.. is there a way i can change how it looks?

probably not, but you could try a third party volume software and see if you can assign the media keys for that.

something like this maybe, apparently there are loads of skins for it.
