XP Media Plus! [7 style] for CSM version 4.3.0

I was using Windows XP Media Center Edition, and noticed the Plus! multimedia programs (Audio Converter, CD Label Maker, Party Mode), kind of look like a start menu, with its top bar inside the title bar.

So, I reused some of those elements, into this menu.


Features:
Wide outside main menu borders.

Main menu thickness:
Thick- like a bedsheet on top of pillowy soft foam on plywood base.
Medium thick- like a bedsheet on top of plywood.
Flat-like on a slab of cold concrete.

Take your pick.



Note. I did not make classic 1/2 style.
To get cheap and dirty classic 2 style , rename XP Media Plus!.skin7 to XP Media Plus!.skin
Put in folder, close or restart CSM, Select Classic 2 column style.
It will put icons on second column.

YAY to Juniper7 for still making skins. :P :) We can just slice off a piece of the menu skin to make a matching taskbar texture.

Some days are good, other days, well, I don't turn on the computer.

Taskbar - I put in zip.
It would be too light to see the taskbar hover, at least on Win10.
What I did was make two textures from the top bar and one from menu,
but darkened a little so taskbar can still use white text. :)

Yeah any faint colored taskbar is harder on my eyes too. Plus they made all the stupid tray icons white and you can't easily change them. That's why XP embedded taskbar texture+your lovely Plex Replay7 skin is my winning combo.
