    I do not use it anymore.
    I am in the MICROSCOPIC - MINORITY
    Big fan of the metro.


    Hello Kapilarya,

    It is a highly edited theme component of a program that is not free.
    You have to buy it!

    It is an OS2 menu theme.

    I do not think I can give the link.
    Forum rules.

    Although, I do not know, there have been links posted for shareware start menu stuff.
    ... I have not seen any other links except news, info or rescue links on this forum.

    google "desktop themes"
    Here's a clue > http://www.###ste#.###

    Let me add this, I have used it for several years,
    ... have spent endless hours configuring and reconfiguring.
    I liked it very much,
    but (for me), the start screen eliminates the need for desktop enhancements.

    A question for money pit:

    What is the Eight Forums tile on your home screen? Is it an IE shortcut? If so it looks like the IE logo has been edited out...

    skallal the Tutorial below explains how I created and renamed the IE shortcut for Eight Forums. As for the logo the created IE tile uses the same logo as seen in the top upper left corner of this site while using the default skin.

    Thank for the reply!

    Option two doesn't work for me. I don't get the menu as the bottom when clicking on an existing tile. Right clicking the tile doesn't work either.

    I wonder if the tutorial is still valid for Release Preview?
