Hi all. My laptop windows application from the Display properties "APPEARANCE" menu is not allowing me to change my Windows and buttons. My Windows screen is a dull box colored Grey. The only selection on the scroll down menu is Windows Classics Style. What must I do to resolve this issue. Thanks in advance...

Try this: go to and try # 282 on the left. It says it's just for the Appearance tab, but maybe it will restore the complete Appearance window.

Link in #1 is valid on my machine - I would try once more.

What's the time?

Out of interest, are you using WindowBlinds?

Check the Themes service is running and set to Auto. To check, follow these instructions:

1. Control Panel > Administritive Tools > Services
2. Scroll to the bottom and note Themes
3. Check it is set to Auto and is currently Started

If it isn't Started or it is disabled, then continue to follow these instructions:

1. Double click Themes
2. Where it says Startup Type, change it to Auto
3. Click Apply, then Start, and lastly OK.

Now check your themes are loadable via the Appearance tab.

I'd reccomend installing StyleXP, which will allow you to have themes that aren't so restricted by Microsoft Windows XP, although not as funky and stylish as WindowBlinds.

...It is simply phsychological analysis consisting mostly of theories I myself have to decypher and deter their respective plausibility...

For solving this problem, please try on reg edit menu, and looking for display appearance, and there, you can change value about your display will be setting. But, first, you must be record the value data so that if sometime error, you can restore the value.
