How can I safely change the taskbar / explorer skin without installing any software? I really like the Vista taskbar and I would love to change it. Help would be appreciated. Thanks in Advance.
Even if you don't want to use software you have to use patches to patch the vista style files, you can download software to do this then apply themes without software. Here is the link to a patcher: http://www.winmatrix.com/forums/index.php?/topic/11742-uxtheme-patcher-for-windows-vista/ and here are the styles you can use after patching: http://browse.deviantart.com/customization/skins/vistautil/visstyles/?order=9.
