Use the following piece of code to get Windows OS Look And Feel

try {
			//org.fife.plaf.VisualStudio2005.VisualStudio2005LookAndFeel
			//de.javasoft.plaf.synthetica.SyntheticaStandardLookAndFeel
			//com.jgoodies.looks.plastic.Plastic3DLookAndFeel	
			UIManager.setLookAndFeel("com.sun.java.swing.plaf.windows.WindowsLookAndFeel");
		} catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		} catch (InstantiationException e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		} catch (IllegalAccessException e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		} catch (UnsupportedLookAndFeelException e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		}
		getContentPane().setLayout(null);

Thank you! Just what i was looking for :D

And like I said, LookAndFeel. It takes about two minutes to find a tutorial on it, if you look.

Why does this happen: I want the first window (one.jpg) to look like the second (two.jpg). What's wrong?
