Custom Themes

Vista Home Premium...

Is there any way to create ones own theme for things such as the colour of 
added links bars to the desktop?  I would like to have the links bar the 
same colour as the taskbar (black).

TIA for any help.

Have you tried changing the colors etc to how you like them and then 
saving the theme under a name you choose?

Yes, Gene. I've tried various themes but can't find any way to change an 
individual characteristic such as the taskbar. At the moment I have the 
Windows Colour set to Graphite and the Theme to Windows Vista. It looks 
great - to me - but the links bar added to the left of the desktop looks 
awful in grey. It's this Links bar that I want to change to black, or 
graphite.

OK - I wasn't sure that you had tried that.

I thought I recalled I had done what you said below in some earlier 
version of Windows, and that it might have propagated into Vista.

Sorry that I was wrong.

As you can tell, I don't usually change themes...

Checkboxes in Custom Forms

How to handle Contact customers vs. Account customers ?
Hello people, I wonder how consumers should be handled in Microsoft CRM. By "consumers" I mean customers that are individuals, "Contacts" in MS CRM. At first, it seems that this should be handled the same way standard Accounts should be handled: quotes, orders and invoices are available just like they are with Accounts. Then, however, I see contacts have no account number. I can, of course, easily create one on the Contact entity, but I am not sure this is a good idea. So, all experienced users out there: how should I do this ? Do you have any suggestions for a B2...
