List of Most Vista / Windows 7 Applications and Features for Xp


Recommended Posts

AMIRZ you are the best...BTW fixed your BBCodes this forum does not seem to like URL in all CAPS it only likes the url in small letters

BBCode error? Oops sorry Rick i really didn't realize/notice that (case sensitive), just recently updated the old post last night, copying and pasting hehe..., many thanks for the helpful info and fixing the code. Hey actually you're the best man here Rick, seriously you've already been my idol for along time with your greatest job :thumbsup_anim: two thumbs up for you bro...

OMG this is really epic, thank you so much, the best one :thumbsup_anim:

You're welcome and thanks for the compliment mate, hope that they would be useful too as well... :D

Edit: Just Added Here: Vista or Windows 7 style application "Windows Help and Support" Mod for XP:

Just released it on my Deviantart page too:


Well, i have noticed that the XP Help and Support application did not even get attention (not patched/skinned, except only for e.g. the help logo on start menu) from most well-known XP transformation packs so far (including even Vista Transformation Pack, Vistamizer, Bricopack Inspirate etc). So it might be necessary to create it by myself and share to people and XP users here, especially for "total XP transformation" as best as possible i hope...it's not perfect yet but still make XP Help and Support look fresh and updated, just like Windows Help and Support in Vista or Windows 7 (AKA Windows Help and Support).

As already tested, it works on Windows XP all versions as well: XP Pro, Home, Tablet PC 2005, and MCE 2005, also retail, corporate, and OEM version. No original functionality is removed/disabled. It's for XP SP3 (should be no problem since most of XP users already have SP3 installed nowadays, whatever the version: Pro, Home, MCE, Tablet PC and so on...)

- Screenshot of Vista / Windows 7 like Help and Support on XP:


(click to enlarge)

It will change some GUI elements of XP Help and Support applications such as icons and toolbar icons, images, text, searchbar etc just like Vista or Windows 7 version (e.g. "Windows Help and Support" on the title bar and taskbar instead of "Help and Support Center" and so on, as you can see the preview/screenshot above...). Note the color itself is also depending on XP theme engine and visual style (for example i used black VistaXP theme in the screenshot btw). Furthermore it still can be customized on some features though, e.g. just like html pages by yourself...
