    I can add [Dwords] to the registry but not
    when I can't understand that which is assumed to be self explanatory.

    Several of the lines are like this example;

    Radius[DWORD] int
    Self Explainatory


    Can someone who knows, please advise how one handles the (int) to change
    the size of the radius, or whatever it might need to be changing ?

    I don't find it (self explainatory) as they put it.

    I'll guess and say Micro's asking how to edit the "ported for XP" Vista screensaver's. That correct Micro?

    Exactly Glo. - I can only imagine that the (int) integer as Kero.
    suggests - will change the size of the Bubbles - I shall read the info.
    at the Wiki. to see if it tells what the possible integer limits might be
    to alter the size up or down, or in and out in the case of the radius.

    Unless you happen to know already Glo. ? the Bubbles are too large
    and maybe there are a couple too many, but I won't know until I cut them down to size, so to speak, and there are other sets of words with integers,
    maybe the speed at which the Bubbles dash across the screen.

    I couldn't get rid of the Black background until I fiddled about and found the Display needs to be on 32 not 16 - now at least I can see the desktop through the Bubbles.

    Whoa!! that's heavy .... Glo. or Kero. - I need something in plain English,
    all I need to know is to what I can change the (int) in order to alter the size down - I thought 0 enabled and 1 disabled, or the other way around, but what (int) do I need to alter the size - can I go 2 or 4, or does it have to be a minus -2 or -4 to reduce the size ?

    They're offered @ several site's as I'm sure you're already aware Micro. What you may wanna try is cross-referencing reg files.

    I did already Glo. - no luck, they all give the same half assed (int) as each other - as though it was too difficult to type in a decent example.

    Jees. thank you Glo. very much, LOL !! - One only needs to read a couple of the sentences
    at the Wiki. to see these people are from another realm - why
    make things simple when they can make them so difficult.

    I did see a (Paragraph) written by an ambulance chaser 1,200 words long,
    and we have to pay these things - I know what I would like to do
    with them.
