Give Internet Explorer a Face-Lift

Don’t like the way Internet Explorer looks? A better-looking browser is just a Registry edit away.

Everything about Internet Explorer screams, “Dull, dull, dull!” From its generic-looking logo to the plain background for its toolbars, you just better hope the content you’re visiting is enough to keep you awake. But you don’t need to be stuck with its plain-Jane looks; these Registry hacks will let you change it however you’d like.

Change the Internet Explorer Logo

Internet Explorer has both a static and an animated logo. The static logo displays when the browser is inactive, and the animated logo displays when the browser is locating a site, connecting, and actively downloading pages or images from the Web. Because you have the choice of displaying large or small icons on the Internet Explorer toolbar (to switch back and forth between the two, choose View Toolbars Customize Icon Options Large/Small icons), there are two sizes of both the static and animated logos.
