    Hi, every body.
    I miss XP. Anywho, At one time I had most of the different versions of XP. What I'm trying to remember is, the ability to
    change the taskbar, menu bar and other active windows top borders so that are 2 colors. For example, I changed my title bar
    to Orange and Blue. It would be brite orange on left and fade in the middle then slowly change to blue. I think it had something to do with Aero?? I have looked for 6 months, and can't find anything of any help. If any of you know about this, let me know.
    Thanks
    Iain
