Oooooh..that would be hecka cool! :D

I know that they are going to be having a screensaver available some time--but they should have like a whole package!

Like...it could have the screensaver, a mouse icon thing..and icons for the trash can and "my computer" and so forth.

I can't think of any good icons, though. :rolleyes:

Maybe a boot, perhaps? Lol.

Already been done. I already have all those things on my computer (sad huh) Lara icons etc, and she says things when I open message windows and stuff like that. I downloaded it from a TR site, I think it was Lara Croft Online, but can't be sure. I don't have a Lara screen saver though, that would be cool.

@Prelude, I went to LCO, and found the desktop theme, but I don't know how to make it work. It says in the readme, to go to Desktop Themes in Control Panel, but I don't have that. I think that's something only in Windows 98, and I don't have that. Would you have any ideas about what to do?

Oooh. I must try this.

Does it work on Win95? Just wondering. Thanks. :D

You need Plus! in order to make Desktop Themes work.

Or there is a Desktop theme manager out there somewhere.....

Sorry I’m late, I was asleep, DaveJ is correct, you need Plus! But you should have it on Windows. It might be that it is not installed; I had to do this before I could download the Desktop theme. Try the following.

To add or remove a Windows component
1.Open Add/Remove Programs properties in Control Panel on My Computer
2.Click the Windows Setup tab, and then do one of the following:

-To add all parts of a component, select its check box.
-To add or remove some parts of a component, click Details, and then select or clear check boxes for those parts.


If you used a CD to install Windows, you will be prompted to insert it into your computer.

Hope this helps

I found Desktop Themes in the Add/Remove Programs file, but it tells me I need a cd for Windows ME, and Windows came preinstalled on our computer, so we do do not have a disk. What do I do??

I also went to the link that Dave gave, but when I try to do the desktop, all that changes is the background.


1st Sep 2002, 14:39
Did you have other options enabled?
If you just want to change your desktop, the background IS all that will change.
Make sure you check icons/sounds/screensaver...whichever ones you do want to change.

I don't think Plus! originally came with Windows 95...it was sold separately, but was included with 98 onwards.

I have so many TR screensavers I can't count them any more. I also made a whole load of icons at some point.

This just in guys, go to the TR website, click on the link HERE (http://www.tombraider.com/home.html) and highlight the downloads tab, there you will find some really cool AOD icons, and it also says screen saver coming soon!!!!

Well, since there is a lot more people wanting, and the files are bigger than my emailer likes to handle, I think you can all download 3 good Screen Savers from This Site. (http://www.screensandthemes.com/screensavers/movies/abc-t.asp) :)

I am quite a beginner in the PC/internet field - as I'm sure Cycro will tell you - LOL!!! But off I went to LCO and downloaded the desktop icons, went to my add/remove programs and was met with the usual install Windows 98 CD prompt. I have the same problem as Aquarius - Windows 98 was pre-installed on my computer. So, as DaveJ suggested I downloaded a Theme Manager from his link - thank you for the link DaveJ but then I found out I needed a program to unzip it, which I didn't have. After much time and patience on Cycro's part - thank you once again Cy you really are the most helpful person - I now have Winrar. But now I can't find the bloody desktop themes I downloaded in the first place!!!! I AM NOW TOTALLY FRUSTRATED AND ABOUT READY TO THROW THE TOWEL IN!!! Any help please - where might these downloaded icons be and how do I now install them!!
