Icons and Themes

You can make Windows XP into your digital alter ego by choosing your own icons, adding a screen saver, or picking a desktop theme. Read on for hints on giving Windows XP a dash of individuality.

Turning Your Photos into a Screen Saver

You may not be a star on the big screen but you can be the star of your computer screen, or more precisely, your screen saver. Simply create a screen saver using your own digital photos or pictures you’ve scanned.

First, put all the photos you want to display on your screen saver in Documents and Settings [Your Account Name] My Documents My Pictures.

Right-click the desktop and choose Properties Screensaver (Figure 2-21). From the drop-down list, select My Pictures Slideshow. In the preview screen, your photo slideshow begins to play.
