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 Embarrassed.

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.

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.  Grin

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 Grin

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:

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 Smiley

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
