    Default Taskbar help request

    I understand that with the Win7 taskbar it is possible to configure it and shrink the windows as well so that it resembles the XP taskbar.
    At one stage I had this exact configuration, but also with my desired background image.

    At one stage I had a look at windows' default pictures.

    Now I can't change it back (both) to the way it was - can anyone offer any guidance. - Or in other words once I change to the Windows Classic theme, how do I keep it and add a background as well?

    See if these links offer what you are looking for. PLEASE create a system restore point first before making any changes to your PC so that you cam always revet back, should you not like the changes.

    Default Win 7 taskbar assistance

    I will rephrase the question:

    I know how to change the wallpaper/theme on the desktop,
    I also know how to change the desktop to the Classic XP look.

    What I don't like about the the XP classic desktop is the dull workspace area.
    I at one stage had the XP desktop and a changing theme (together).

    I had a look at some default Windows' piccies, but when I tried to restore my original configuration - the XP desktop refused to exist with my original setting/s.
    Does anyone know how to make this set-up from scratch? (I had it this way to start off with so I know it is possible)
