    I was wondering about a patch I heard about earlier that allows you to use visual styles from ThemeXP. I'd like to use them but with as little resources as possible.

    What's the name of that patch and how good is it exactly?


    It is time...

    ...for the end to be stopped.

    UXTheme Multi-Patcher

    How good is it? It does the job...

    If you want to use as little resource as possible, then go with the Windows Classic theme and turn off all extra eye candy, but the theme patcher uses a hell of a lot less resources than windowblinds. Don't use style XP either. It uses more resources than it has to. Just go with the patcher.

    Agreed, go with the uxtheme.dll patch. you can use all the styles that u&#39;d be able to use with style xp but with a lot less resources. windows blinds use completely diff themes to the xp visual styles, u can get just as good, or better looking visual styles. so go with the patch.

    If you&#39;re talking about the ones with the .msstyles extension, then yeah. The thing about the new styleXP, it has other options like replacing icons, which is a bad idea, and a bunch of other stuff which is really pointless.

    Replacing icons, ESPECIALLY, one by one is a bad idea because it uses a lot more video memory, as well as having mor icons on the desktop. There&#39;s a lot of little things like that no one knows about.

    Hmm, I&#39;ve installed a different icon set using StyleXP and haven&#39;t noticed more icons on my desktop.
