How do I get W2K to have the same visual styles as XP? I saw another post like this earlier, but the links they supplied are no good, and the post is dead now.

Using Professional edition.

I do not wish to go out and buy a copy of XP just to make my computer look pretty.

Well I'm afraid that's the only legal way to get the looks and styles of XP. :thumbsup:

I don't know exactly what you want W2K to look like, but you can download and use "themes" in W2K.

Just do a Google search for - "Windows 2000" themes -

Good luck - hope you find one that works for you.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Ironically, to improve performance of XP, Windows "look and feel" settings get adjusted to resemble those of 2000.
