Desktop Themes is based on Desktop Themes in
Microsoft Plus! (c) Microsoft Corp and since version 1.0
there have been several changes. Some of these
enhancements include capabilities that are not obtainable
in Microsoft Plus!. The best features include:
- Extra adjustable settings to the color scheme for an enhanced 3D effect.
- Easily install and remove theme packages.
- Add/Remove system Startup/Shutdown logo images.
- Save themes for distribution. (All code is created automatically.)
- Support for Windows 98/NT 5.0 system color settings.
- Fixes for yet another set of icon related issues with Windows 2000.
- Desktop Themes no longer writes the "ThemeColorBPP" and "ThemeImageBPP"

- Desktop Themes can now load and save color profiles created with 3D Color Changer 98" by JaSMiN Co.
