Is there any way to reduce the Start Menu height with msstyle editing? I'm not talking about the usual "reducing height by removing items", I want the size to be reduced more, cuz in Vista there's like this limit to reducing the height.

I think you can just make a copy of the Areo folder and follow all the steps for it.... that should work I can't see why it wouldn't :)

This doesn't address a lot of stuff. Like how to make different corners on the titlebar, shadows, etc..

And can you make the titlebar image tile instead of stretch?

2. Download and Install my Theme Template from this LINK
This will install a copy of the original aero theme and place all the required files into the correct locations with Jemaho’s Improved Shellstyle, ready for modifying.

Is there a simpler way to change the font, system-wide, in a visual style? The PDF download in the first post is way too much work, requires shareware, and even requires you to copy text and paste it into the hex editor, but it's a PDF, so you can't copy the text. I've been using displayset for a loooong time, but it's no longer bearable, and changes elements in the visual style to windows classic style.
