xp desktop appearance

have set up the missus as a user on my pc, would like to adjust her appearance, the desktop, not her.
limited choice of colours though, she will want lilac or something else girly.
any ideas.

Rightclick Desktop/Appearance/Advanced and tittify to your hearts content.

Something girly? You believe in walking on thin ice,don't you? :o_

Display Properties, Appearance tab, Select Windows Classic style and 'Lilac' colour scheme.

thanks for that but none of it works.

the classic view option is fine if you want to keep it, I want lilac in xp view for example.

the advanced option only lets me change the background colour not the toolbars, the other tabs are "locked"
