XP Interface

By ljackson.desoto ·
I was prepping some computers in December with Windows XP installed and I ran accross an option to make the desktop look more like Win 98. I no longer have the computer, but someone needs to know how to do this. Does anyone know where this option is? I thought it was part of the taskbar properties customization. Thanks in advance.

To adjust XP's desktop animations and visual effects, right click on My Computer and select Properties/Advanced/Performance Settings. You can choose to activate/deactivate individual items or use the general "best performance/best appearance" buttons. When you've made a change, click Apply, and you'll see the effects almost immediately.

By the way: Selecting Best Performance makes your desktop look very much like the classic desktopin Win98/Win2K.

Experiment until you've found the mix of speed and visual effects that works best for you.

The last piece is on the taskbar - you can right click the taskbar and select properties - then on the start menue tab you can choose the classic start menu view as well.
between all of the answers that about covers it - good luck!
