Customize Desktop and Start Menu

For the next week, I’m going to run a series of guides that will help you customize your desktop and start menu on your Windows Vista machine.

These guides come from the ‘Windows Vista – Customization Manual’ [Download a copy now]. The customization manual runs over the basics of customizing your Windows Vista machine to make it more personal. This guide is free of charge to all mintywhite.com readers.

To get these guides, you can subscribe to the RSS feed (don’t know what RSS is?), or subscribe by e-mail.
