Understanding and Modifying XP Interface Components

Before discussing how you change the default theme, we should cover the interface components or visual effects of the XP GUI, such as whether windows are animated when minimized or maximized and how ToolTips or menus look when activated.

To access the visual effects, you must open the My Computer Properties dialog box, click Start, and then right-click My Computer. Select Properties from the shortcut menu and then select the Advanced tab of the Properties dialog box.
