I just added a 4 GB package of RAM to my system and the system sees it, but DesktopX meters only sees 2 GB. Can this be fixed?

Well guys and gals, so far I can't get Windowblinds to skin Windows 7....bummer! I will make further reports as I get them, feel free to add your own notes, if you use the Beta Windows 7.

    I was just wondering if the problem of Right Click's use of the windowblinds skin is being addressed? It only applies the Quest skin, no others. It has been this way for quite some time.

  Hey there Guys and Gals!  I recently uploaded a set of  gadgets that were malfunctioning. The weather gadget would keep reverting to my location, instead of staying on the user's location. I believe it is because the gadget being that, a gadget rather than a widget, sees my location as default. I hope I am being clear. They work correctly as widgets, somehow, my location seems to become FINAL, for lack of a better term, when I export it as a gadget. When the user puts in his/her...

   I am posting here to say that anyone who has downloaded my Gadget sets can be watching for an update. Seems that the weather widget part of it keeps reverting back to my area info, rather than yours. I have my tester back, and he and a few others have brought this to my attention.

   I apologize for the inconvenience and I will be taking them off the galleries until I can figure out why. I will reupload as widgets, for the time being. I am almost sure the widget form wi...

    I have been using CursorFX forever on my Vista rig, and my XP rig. Yesterday I copied all my cursor themes to my flash drive, and moved them to my Vista rig. Not CorsorFX locks up on Vista. I can't change cursors. I uninstalled, reinstalled, ran system restore....nada. Still locks up when I open it.

I thought I'd start a thread on what we might like to see in future versions of DesktopX. I will start with this:  In DesktopX I would love to see an option to have all labels to be transparent, and to have it remain so when exported as a widget. Now when I make all labels magic pink so they don't show. When you export as a widget they come back....bummer. Also would love to see as much as feasilbe, some more built in scripts. Also, nicer clock hands, or a way to edit the default ones in mo...

I was just reading the new DesktopX Guide and there is some misinformation there. On page 4 when talking about the Desktop Playground theme, it says that in Wall Mode the icons bounce off the edge of your screen, when actually, they stick to the sides of your screen. No biggie, just an observation.
While I am here, I would like to know who wrote the scripts on this desktop, and who I need to ask to use them....please.

I have removed this, it was wrong to begin with. I am sorry for not realizing that at first. I have made an apology to the artist.

Right click doesn't seem to be importing skins from windowblinds. No matter which blind I am running, I always get the Quest skin when I choose to use the windowblinds skin. Help!!

Help. When I click on a skins library in sd central, I get a message stating there was an error downloading the selected library. Please try again. It happens no matter which library I click. Shutting down and rebooting does not help.
