Ahhhhh! Sorry guys, but I can't figure out how to make the taskbar smaller... I've tried everything I could think of. It just always streaches out to 30 px. I tried making it 25px and then adding an extra 5px of transparency above but it still streaches out the task buttons and leaves 5px of black on top. If anyone knows how to do this or have seen a skin like that please show me. Sorry.

Really good. The only thing I would like to see is one where the active window appears as the light blue color on the taskbar (like the buttons for close, etc.)

the size of your taskbar is really controlled by the content margins of your taskbar buttons. easiest way to make a smaller taskbar is to make the taskbar image the same size as the titlebar...so if the titlebar is 25px tall then create your taskbar to be 25px tall. second; create your taskbar buttons to be slightly taller, say 28px. the extra room at the top of the taskbar button is where you would place your sizing margins so that the button does not stretch out of shape when you set the content margin. NOW...set the top, left and right content margins inside of the button "image" and leave the bottom content margin set to zero. by leaving the bottom margin at zero, the top content margin will dictate the size of the taskbar. and since your taskbar button won't deform you can basically fire at will with the content margins. if you need an example, take a look at terrestrial or galaxy two...they are both done this way.

hope this helps

There's definitely a problem with the full start menu. It loads Windows Classic.

I smell bull-she-hat. This is way too good to be first-timer work.

Seriously- this is excellent! I agree though- a tad of transparency would push this over te top. You should submit it to the GUI-Olympics.

Very Good. Transparency would put this over the top.
