  2. How can I create a custom desktop theme?

    Ahh, I have indeed found the option to select a folder of images for a background slideshow. However, I do not want a slideshow. I would like a
    solid, light color background and a darker color for menu items, task bar, etc. There seems to be a choice of solid background colors (most of them disgusting, some truly hideous) with no ability to "calibrate" that color or select something
    harmonious for the menu and taskbar and other such items. Sigh. I have been working on this for five months now and am getting weary. And why the devil do I need a "Windows Account" in order to ask about this?

    How does one go about making more specific changes--like increasing the border width? For example, when I change the extension of the *.theme file to *.ini I can open it as a text file.

    Since *.msstyles is a Microsoft format, is there a tool (something in Visual Studio for example) that can edit these?

    Can I create a custom language pack?

    I think it would be possible but just like a lot of Open Source 'freebie' programs offered there would first need to be the translation of the Operating System the language would be used with. Windows isn't exactly Open Source like the free versions of Linux [about 250] that the developers are always needing translators for, also a number of free/Open Source programs offered. But then I'm no programmer beyond batch files.

    My understanding is that this is possible but it is far from simple. You would have a great deal to learn. Learn to be an expert at Internet searches. You will be doing a lot of it.

    In theory there are some messages embedded in applications and DLL files. You have to translate these messages and replace them. You would also need to digitally sign most of the files. As you can imaging this is not simple. Use a Hex Editor to examine some files and get an idea.

    Also curious about this issue, anyone tried it? In my view, it is a difficult job.

    The easiest could be to devise a custom alphabet to replace all letters and numbers, then create a custom font with that symbols. Finally replace the system font with your custom font, so everything will be encrypted to others and readable only from you.

    We did use a custom alphabet when we were kids to write encrypted messages that girls couldn't read... Sometimes I have even used it in school for cheating. I caught the teacher would not understand this is cheat *Wink
