Pardon my ignorance but, where is it that you download all these skins for Wondows XP? I wasn't even aware you could do so :-[.

I've been looking for the longest time for a whole visual style (ie cogs and animations and stuff) as well as some objectdock icons that all fit steampunk/raygun gothic styles but so far nothing is really that good , if i knew how to make one (and had the time) I would.

This is what I am currently clanging around with.

Mac OS X ,  Programs on the bottom from left to right
finder, safari, mail, Itunes, pages, secret book, iPhoto, iCal, address book, iChat,  then trash

the gear is my HD

The theme is a shapeshifter theme called Nobilis

I am working on making my outer case brass and wood.  More on that as it develops.

WindowBlinds is a commercial software program you can use to reskin Windows:

There's a free trial download version to experiment with. You can download skins from:

http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?libid=1&c=1

They have another program you can use to create your own skins.

Here is my desktop:  Mac OSX With custome Theme (Photopro) by Palli Svansson and Custom desktop by me.  Originally I had just the wood but i wanted to create something with pictures of my family.  Nice yes?

The picture at the left has resided on my desktop for the past 5 years - before I knew that Steampunk existed.

Very nice Mr. Gentlemen's Handbook!!

Mine seems rather dull by comparison:


EDIT: Thought I ought to add what all is included in it. Some art I stole saved off DeviantArt from...someone...I forget who, but I need to look it up and give them proper credit. Bronze Daize WindowBlinds with Forficula Font, Steam Gauge and Borg Clock Yahoo Widgets.  ;D

Wow. That quite rocks, Pixelrunner! I'm relatively new to both computing and my macbook pro, how can I find out how to change those settings?

Very nice SomewhatSavvy, I actually thought that was a self portrait for a sec ;D

Ive updated my desktop bit:

I added a new Start menu:

Theres also the Davis Clock although I rarely use it...


And I also built a new Myspace page which I think is much Steamy-er than my last one:

As to the start menu check out the thread "Steam windows menu" on this very board. :)

Of course!

I got the Start menu from this link

The Winamp skin is here

And the desk clock I found on Brass Goggles...but I'm too lazy to look for the exact link....Its a CrabFu creation.

Ok.. Here's my KDE desktop in OpenSUSE; Maybe not as steamy as most desktops in this thread, but maybe it is more like a Victorian desktop :)

In my case, "Style XP" hits the spot, but normally it's as simple as downloading a theme and double-clicking the associated file.

Your google-fu is weak... just give it "StyleXP". I can't give you anything, my style of google-fu is made of Kruppstahl and only gives German results.

My google-fu is NOT weak. I mean that I am running on XP OS and I want to know how to change the skin on XP, not to XP. Ja?

Just exactly what is Kruppstahl anyway? Is it similar to scheize?

Customising XP - the Khai Method

1: Go here and get  Uxtheme MultiPatcher   http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=308905 (it's free, no registration needed. it patches your XP to allow non M$ Xp themes)

2: Go here and choose the Theme you want... http://themes.belchfire.net/index.php?automodule=downloads&showcat=1 All will now work with your XP.

3: Consider a Desktop replacement like Aston or Litestep
