I saw this picture, and would like to shrink the right pane from the start
menu like in the picture:
http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y206/cheesyturtle/Desk...

Basically the text is hidden, but the icons and the expanding arrows are
still there...

Anyone know how to do that?

Thanks

I use WindowBlinds from stardock.com. The start menu style in your jpg is
referred to as "compact" and is a common option in themes used with this
program.

The text has been removed not hidden. Stupid idea.

You can use stylexp from www.tgtsoft.com and then look for visual styles
that have a compact menu from http://www.themexp.org/

that particular one in your screenshot, is one of my favorites.. its called
ROYAL INSPIRAT, and you can download it and its variations from:

Original inspirat http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/10949392/
a variation is this: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/11775238/
and this http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/14893344/

also a very nice theme inspired by the new MS theme royal is this one:

And the previous one along with this one are my favorites

Remember you need to download STYLEXP from www.tgtsoft.com in order to get
these visual styles (themes) to work.

Visit my site www.computerboom.com and stay tuned because I will all lots of
themes and more interesting stuff.
