hi, i'm a litestep nub, i didn't even know you could change the look of windows (although i'm quite used to it in linux). anyway, i searched through the themes until i found one i wanted to stick with. I took out some stuff i didn't like, and am going to modify the custom program menus and email checker thingie, but there is one thing i do not know how to change to my liking. the menu for the right click (and for all of the other menus) is small and ugly. i would like to change it to something i can actually read :) i would appreciate it if somebody could just point me in the right direction, tell me which files to modify and all that so the right click menu looks better. i can take it from there.
ps, sorry for the one sentance really bad typing, sadly i've gotten used to this way of typing because it's a lot faster when i'm playing games...
You'll need to look for a section in your 'theme.rc' in the theme folder, and look for a section titled 'popup'.
You can also edit what is in your popup menu by editing 'popup.rc' in your 'personal' folder.
I recommend making backups of the files before editing anything though.
Hope this helped :)
actually yes, this helped a lot. now i know what to mess with and it's already looking better. thanks :)
I want to RTFM on making themes, but I can't seem to find a FM. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I downloaded a theme editor and I have a theme that I'd like to modify, but I just want to make sure I'm doing the right thing. So, again, anyone know where I can find a DOC on theme creation / editing?
no docs, just pure experimentation.... as far as i know of at least
pure experimentation is the funnest way :)
and if you get really stuck there are ppl on the forums who can help you now and then
