    I used up my trial for WindowBlinds :( I miss it. It made everything look so good, with my Leopard taskbar and leopard object dock skin, it looked so "classy." But now I don't know how to apply my skins. I downloaded some skins but whenever I go to "Display" in my control panel, all it lists is this one really bad skin I downloaded a long time ago, and "Zune" "Classic" and "XP" themes. How do I apply the skins and make Windows recognize them, like make them an option in the Appearance tab in the "Display" section in my control panel?

    right click desktop, click properties,

    on the window that pops up you should be under the tab "Themes"

    on the drop down box it should say something along the lines of "Modified theme"

    click the drop box and choose browse.

    Locate the theme file you're using,

    and it should work =]

    let me know if it does not

    You shouldn't use programs to change themes, they waste system resources. Google how to change skins without programs and enjoy a faster pc.

    if you use programs like windowsblinds etc.. yes. as they do more stuff on the BG, just use a uxtheme patcher, i use neotheme you can patch your uxtheme with it and easily install visual styles & shell styles
