Part I: Windows XP Theme Basics > Basic Windows XP Interface Modifications

Chapter 2. Basic Windows XP Interface Modifications

In this chapter

  • Placing icons on the desktop

  • Modifying desktop and folder icons

  • Modifying the Windows XP interface components

  • Understanding screen resolutions

  • Changing Windows fonts

  • Customizing the Start menu>

  • Modifying the taskbar

We also need to look at how screen resolution affects the overall look of the interface and discuss Windows visual effects.
