    The only Ferrari theme I have at the moment is my Instant Messanger F1 theme.

    Press the 'print screen' button. Then go to a image editing program and paste the image. MS paint works, though I do not know if u can resize in paint

    All you need to do is hold down the "control" key and press the "print screen" key at the same time.

    This takes a screenshot of whatever is currently on your monitor. In order to view the shot you will need to open up "Paint" or PhotoShop.

    Open a new document and use the "paste" function to insert in the new photo. Adjust size as needed to meet the normal F-chat dimension standard and there ya go!

    Clear your desktop of clutter
    Right-click Desktop; Active Desktop; Uncheck "Show Desktop Icons"

    To have desktop handy without icons littering up the joint:
    Right click Toolbar
    Check "Toolbar".

    I also stuff all extraneous Icons into a folder I named "Crap"

    Highlighted (for a reason) is an icy racing game called "Tuxracer" - a Penguin hurtling down an insane luge run, while catching up to 80 herring at speeds of up to 240 kph - I only "Practice" on the "Who says Penguins Can't Fly?" Course. The other courses bore me, but "Fly?" rocks.

    My desktop is rather bland.. since I don't even see it too much. No Icon's as Wax suggests, and it hides everything else... Plus, with so much compression, it looks horrible.

    You learn something everyday......

    I had no idea you poor Americans get such dreadful deletions on your 246 GT....., is it not enough that your goverment imposed such ridiculous emission and bumper regulations??????

    The Euro 246 "clap hands" wipers and lovely indicator lamps are soooo much prettier than your US "conventional" wipers and boxy lamps...


    such a shame.

    I used to have Ferrari's on my desktop, but then I got a son (and a reality check.......)

    I forgot to add that I am working on a large collection of exotic car desktops from images I have taken myself at Ferrari events, Crystal Cove, and local dealerships. The whole set should have around 50 photos of everything ranging from Porsche 356s to Enzos. Ill upload them all to Fchat once I am done...and take some more "good" shots :)

    Here are just a couple of examples.
