    Theming Windows
    Friday, April 14, 2006
    Bored with the original, dull, boring Windows ?
    So, its time for you to theme your Windows and turn its appearence into what-ever suits your taste.

    There are some softwares available on the internet which enable to theme your Windows easily. The best are:

    A shell is the interface between you and the system, which shows you stuff and lets you do things and interact with the Operating system. By default, Explorer is the shell that window uses.
    The default shell can safely be replaced because it is not the core of the system, just part of the user interface. Your applications don't know or care what you are using as a shell.
    Replacement shells (or Alt Shells as the geeks like to call it) do the same basic jobs as explorer.exe, but they don't necessarily try to mimic the usual Taskbar and Start Menu with merely cosmetic changes. Instead they usually provide one or more toolbars, popup menus, hotkeys, an alternative Desktop, etc.

    Some shell replacements are :
