Chapter 2. Basic Explorer Coping Skills > Tweaking the Interface

2.2. Tweaking the Interface

If you've made it this far, odds are that you already know how to change your desktop wallpaper, create shortcuts on your desktop, and rearrange the items in your Start Menu. The following solutions allow you to customize some of the more subtle aspects of the Windows interface, using methods somewhat less obvious than those found in ordinary dialog boxes.

Probably the most important customizations in this section are illustrated in Section 2.2.1 and Section 2.2.6. Both of these solutions utilize built-in features of the operating system in ways for which they weren't necessarily intended. The rest of this section should help you tame the Tray, the Control Panel, and the Start Menu—stuff you won't find in the manual.
