Some time ago I made a mod of the Windows XP Luna skin with the right side font/text in bold. I also made some other changes to the skin:

- Left side font and submenu is Segoe UI Semibold. 'Semibold' makes it very readable.
- Increased the arrow padding for split buttons to make it more touch-friendly
- Made the Main_arrow slightly smaller so it looks more elegant for jumplists
- Reduced the font to -9
- The font color in the right column and the Main_arrow color matches the skin variation color

Download it if you are interested.

Hi GauravK.
Beautiful. My favorite operating system.
Never even knew about "Semibold".

I managed to get the split selection arrows even smaller,
on another classic two column skin,
compared to the main programs arrow.
Not sure about compatibility though.

Example:
Below from a Plex type menu.
Version=3

[PLEX_ARROWS]
Main_arrow=35
Main_split_arrow=36

Hi juniper7,

Didn't know about the arrows! I thought the All Programs arrow must be the same as the one for jumplists, at least that was the case some versions ago. I guess I haven't taken a good look at the new skinning engine features in a while. Thanks! :)
