Diamond in the Rough: "Glitz & Glam" v. "Down to Business"

While Windows XP has created many visual effects that are "fun", they can also take a toll on the overall performance of your systems.

If you want to turn more of these on or simplify things by turning them off 1. Right Click on your desktop (you may need to minimize the windows of other programs that are currently open to do this)
2. Click Properties
3. Click on the Appearance Tab
4. Click on the "Effects..." button
5. Here you can change who different aspects of Windows looks on your screen
