Post screencaps of your desktop and discuss wallpapers, where you got yours, etc.

I'll start:

How do you post your desktops?

11-21-2005, 10:49 PM
Press the 'PrintScreen' button on your heyboard. It's next to scroll lock and F12. That copies the screenshot to the clipboard. Then just open your favorite image editing program, paste it into a document that is 1024x768, or whatever your resolution is, save it, and then upload it to www.imageshack.us (or whatever image hosting site you like).

No, that screenshot is Windows XP, but I'm using blackbox lean shell for the window manager, and the icon bar at the bottom and the tabs on the side is ObjectDock (plus). The calendar is Rainlendar.

For the icons, I just browse deviantart for them mostly.

Note that I rarely use Windows anymore.

I used DesktopX (http://www.stardock.com/products/desktopx//), from Stardock (http://www.stardock.com). It can transform your desktop to whatever someone mods it into.

The skin I'm using is the LCARS Skin (http://www.customize.org/details/42249). It's abit unstable though, so I don't use it much. Not sure if it's the skins fault or DesktopX itself.

I also installed BootSkin (http://www.stardock.com/products/bootskin//) to change the Windows logo while starting up my machine to this (http://www.wincustomize.com/ViewSkin.aspx?SID=1&SkinID=3312&LibID=32), aswell as the loginscreen with LogonStudio (http://www.stardock.com/products/logonstudio//) to make it appear like so (http://www.wincustomize.com/ViewSkin.aspx?SkinID=1427&LibID=26).
