Desktop Themes

by soreheadedBear / March 31, 2004 8:28 PM PST

Recently installed 2 new hard drives,(20 and 40 gig) on 2 separate pc's, running XP pro on both. Before installing the HD's, there was lots of themes to choose from, now they are gone ! Is there somewhere to download free Themes like "Jungle",etc ?
My daughter is extremely disappointed with the very few we have now.
Did I do something wrong ???
Thanks in advance for any help !!!

??? Did you mean that you added the hard drives to p.c.'s that already had one or that the new hard drives replaced the others.???? if replaced then of course they are gone.

anyway , there are literally millions of themes for free online just do a search on google for free xp themes.

It seems to me you're talking about the sound schemes which came with Windows 98SE, they aren't present in XP Pro. Wait a while and there'll be many more suggestions forthcoming, I wouldn't be surprised. Regards

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
