Tips and tricks:
To make that window looks same as it is here presented in this promo pictures you’ll need to do the next: Activate status bar in explorer (explorer menu: view/status bar) and check it “on”!
The bottom status bar will appears. Then open display properties, switch on Appearance and from Color
scheme choose: Aqua or Graphite variation!
Aqua & Graphite light variations are built with the thinner frame which means that they don’t support rounded edges in the status bar. This is recommended variation if you do not use status bar! If you do, like here in this example, well then just use Aqua or Graphite color variation. Download and install Styler.
After installation you’ll need to activate Styler, and you can do that by calling the menu from the window.
Just click near the help menu with the right button and choose from menu StylerToolBar… The rest
should be unchecked (or hidden).
Then open Styler menu and from there hide menu in explorer! You can also enable windows shadow effect from there. Just check Desktop tab. This is what you should get at the end! Install XWindows Dock for full Leopard experience and even more.
