Tips for Customizing Your Computer

By Edited Dec 19, 2015 0 7

This are some tips for you who bored with your computer.

1. Create a photo screen saver

You can create a custom screen saver slideshow from a folder photo.

Right click the desktop, click Properties, and then click the screen saver tab. Next, select My Pictures Slideshow, on the screen Saver drop-down menu, click Settings, then click the browse button to select location of your pictures folder, and then click OK.

2. Change Your Desktop background


There is something about setting and staring at the same desktop background day in and day out that just sucks time from me. Honestly, I easily target the day of the week after a couple hours in front of my computer. Don't let this happen to you, change your desktop background occasionally.

3. Change your theme

You can easily change the entire look of your desktop in Windows, backgrounds, pointers, colors, icons, you name it.

4. Create a custom theme

What's the point in having a theme for your personal computer if you can't make it personal? Here's how to customize a personal theme.

Right-click the desktop and then click properties. Next, click the themes tab, click the themes drop-down menu, and select a theme to start with. While, you're still in the Display Properties dialog box, click the Desktop, Screen Saver, and Appearance tabs to make news choices for these item. Click the Apply button each time you make a change (clicking the OK button will close the dialog box). When you're finished, go back to the themes tab, click Save As, give your new theme a name, and click Save.

Next up is something from a company called Stardock. WindowsBlind is a program that turns Windows into a fully skin OS. It allows users to apply visual style (also know as skin) that can completely change the overall look and feel of Windows. It changes the title bars, scroll bars, push button, the start bar, icon text, radio button, borders, dialog backgrounds and many more.

When a user downloads WindowsBlinds, they are actually downloading two version of it. there is a version designed by Windows XP and later operation systems and a version for windows XP, Vista, ME, and 2000.
