I am really new to this custom theme thing, so I am not sure what I am looking at in the .txt file (I know its the differences between the two msstyles).

Could you provide the same info like for the jumplist, because that was really easy to understand. I changed the image file 878.png like you said and now my jumplist has aero on it. I wish to do the same for the start menu as well.

Hi Jerry, one remaining item. The system menu with no pinned items shows black.

I can give you the location numbers but if you are not using Windows Style Builder it will do you no good there are some properties that need changed to give the start menu transparent. So if you purchase WSB I will be able to help more.

That happens it's not supposed to be a transparent image for the jumplists so that's the trade-off.

Ok, thanks. I just wanted to make sure to have done all that I could and that I hadn't done it wrongly.
