You can install and use a "theme", which is a collection of multiple skins usually by the same author (kinda like a WoW UI compilation) or you can download each skin separately and build your own desktop.

So yeah, in other words, exactly like the WoW UI

For stuff like taskbar modifications, start orb changes, folder appearance etc. you can download a bunch of Windows .dlls that go into your Windows\System32 folder, or you can use programs like LiteStep or TrueTransparency or some more crazy stuff to make your own look. But the quickest way to get a nice custom desktop is to go to deviantART and search for Visual Styles. These packs usually include tons of .dlls and rainmeter skins and are meant to be a full desktop replacement.

Which is what I've done (obsessively during the last week).
Wow, there needs to be a filter on the visual styles that removes every style with some asian girl on the desktop :P

Thanks for the help

Decided to try something different for a change, and swapped out the whole shell. It's pretty configurable, and I'm getting used to it, so it shouldn't be long before I make myself a good theme.

Wait, nix that, I'm lazy, so it could take months or longer. >.<

The very same here! I used to do this a lot when I ran Windows XP, it was easier. Now I don't have the patience to tinker with Windows 7.

Well Ferous hooked me up with a very cool wallpaper, so I would say right now I do have a cool desktop.

well, after fiddling with rainmeter for a day and a half, i settled for the HUD arrangement. I think it came out nicer than i thought on my part I have like 23 different wall papers, just from browsing the internet, and I have it set up that every 30 minutes or so, it just changes backgrounds. I like it

You know what time it is, Forum?
No, not comment question of the day time

It's thread necro time!

But seriously, I've gotten some great ideas from this thread and since I don't play WoW anymore I need to satisfy my UI addiction somehow...
