    This is really confusing me as anywhere i find this no one explains where

    Start Menu > Panels > Basic > Programs List > Panels > Programs List

    Start Menu > Panels > Basic > Programs List > Panels > Programs List Extended

    Start Menu > Panels > Basic > Programs List > Panels > Programs List Separator

    are?

    • Admin_Mrblade

      they are the locations in WSB like Start Menu > Panels > Basic > Programs List > Panels > Programs List means:
      First open your theme in wsb in the left side there will be properties, go to Start Menu under that Panels under that Basic and so on..

    Thanks! I have one more question. Whenever I apply my theme and try to move around Start Screen tiles, it cut’s like 26px from bottom and top and 8px from each side. Have any idea how I could fix this?
    Cheers, great tut, helped me a lot!
