While we can do alot with themes, Things like the start button and the windows icons are in system files that can't be changed without hacking. Its not hard, but in many cases its not safe.

Becasue your computer can crash and you could mess with a inportant system file. Make sure you back up any files you do change.

It would only cause a crash if you don't do it correctly, and in that case, anything you do with a computer is 'not safe'.

I made some custom folders if anyone want's to use them, inspired by icons made by molinarosp on DeviantArt.
