Windows Home Server Theme? RRS feed

  • Question

  • What are the available themes available with WHS?

     

    I am not really concerned about the graphical interface but I when I search for images on Google or see images of Windows Home Server on Wiki, I notice that it has a Vista like theme.

     

    And I only have a choice of Classic theme

    Can anyone help me install the original theme for Windows Home Server.

  • As far as I know there are no themes in WHS. You may be misunderstanding the posts. From my eval, there is a mix in the look and feel to the product. For instance, the install starts up similar to Windows Vista, then transitions into a Windows Server like look and feel and then the desktop is much like Windows 2000 (or classic in XP).

    Now the WHS client has a look of its own but if I had to identify it with another windows product, I would say it is most similar to Windows Vista.

  • There are two "look and feel" areas for WHS. The WHS Console is the application you will normally use to manage WHS. That has a very "vista-like" L&F. The desktop, which you reach through Remote Desktop, is pure Windows Server 2003, and there's no real "theming" available at that point, beyond changing colors and fonts.

  • Have you installed the CTP release? It's updated the look & feel compared to beta2 release.
