I am having trouble getting non-microsoft themes to work. I have done PatchXP, UX Theme Multi Patcher 1.5.1, etc. to enable non-MS themes. I can see the theme in the "themes" tab (display properties), but can't see anything but Window XP or Windows Classic on the "Appearance" tab, Windows and Buttons DropDown.

I have XP Home, SP1.

I have downloaded a lot of themes from www.theme.org, but am having no luck using any of them.

Any Ideas? :)

You need to run a theme utility like Style XP.
You can get that HERE

yah. for xp i recommend stylexp best. windowblinds is ok too but for some reason i like stylexp more. :p i preffer windowblinds for anything that ISN'T xp like 98 and stuff.

and no matter what you do, if you go into the desktop properties to edit stuff like icon spacing and the width of the close and restore buttons on windows, that preview will always be unskinned. and its just a preview so theres no worrying about it. you can make changes on it and your skin will still be in place.

for some reason i think that's what your tryit to adress. the preview image. so long as windows is skinned, the preview doesn't matter.
