    Whats good wit ya jessekilner! It has been a while. Using the wings as buttons is a great idea...never thought of that. Gonna have to do that with mine. Perfect for skipping and fwd song tracks when the main desktop is showing. I could use the left side of the logo for play/pause, the right side for stop, the inner wing on each side for ffwd and frwd, and the outer wing tips for skip fwd or back one track(will put small indicator symbols for each function in the appropriate areas. Thanks for the idea(pure genius). Will post a new pic when I finish the new buttons! I can now use my onscreen keyboard for most everything...Found this link...

    and resized my windows onscreen keyboard. Now all I have to do is find a way to change its skin color(for free) to match my color scheme(black). Will keep you all posted on my progress!!!

    And it is still built off of Windows core...not good IMHO

    Gonna add a voice commands "show keyboard" and "hide keyboard" once I install the voice software to toggle the keyboard for me. I just touch the field I want to type in, then type away. Gotta surf the web to find s free software to change its skin color scheme though.

    Found a better onscreen keyboard to use instead of the one supplied by windows called Touch-It. Did some editing and created one that goes better with my theme. It can be minimized until needed(a nice transparent touch screen size button is always sitting in my lower right corner of the screen), and has a transparency effect setting even when maximized so I can use it when I'm web surfing and can still see the page. Will post pics after lunch!

    Back from lunch...Here are some pics of my project in progress...
