Turn down display settings

I've forgotten how I switched the XP display settings to make them look a bit w98(ish), thus freeing up some sytem resources.

Open Control Panel and in the left hand pane click Switch to Category View

Try a Right Click on the Start Menu or go to Control Panel, Tasbar & Startmenu, then select Start Menu tab and tick the box marked Classic Start Menu.

I don't think it will free up much in the way of useful resources, are you having other problems ?

Or do you mean this, right any click blank space on destop and select Properties then click the Themes tab and select a new theme from the drop down list ?

Basically the XP desktop contains lots of shadow and shading and stuff. This tweak turned all that off. I'm not having massive problems but with 900meg CPU, 256 meg RAM, XP pro, i'm just trying to lighten the load. I used to know how to do it but i've forgotten. I'll try these two and let you know.
