TUTORIAL: Transform Windows XP into Windows Vista

Recommended Posts

Since we all know that Windows Vista has been released but its too costly to purchase. The most interesting thing in Vista is its look, new icons, cursors, theme, sounds, login screen, boot screen, etc. So I'm posting this tutorial to make our existing Windows XP to look-a-like Windows Vista.

Yes! There are lots of Vista Transformation packs available on net but I never use them because they slow down the windows and also install a few 3rd party utilities. So its better to do all the things manually.

In this tutorial, I'll tell you about how to make following things to look-a-like Vista:

Visual style (or theme)

Boot screen

Login screen


Mouse Cursors

Windows Icons

Windows Explorer

Progress dialog box

Shutdown/log off dialog box

About Windows box

System Properties dialog box

Windows Classic Startmenu Left-side Image and Start button Logo

and a few other things

So here we go:

Transform Windows XP in Windows Vista without Customization pack
