glad you like it!
actually i think this may have come up before and we figured out i needed to add something to make this possible.. easy enough to do if so.
did you find a skin you like that works in all other respects?

I modified VistaXP-VISTAXPS2 to my needs, only the background missed.

See attachment for zipped modified skin.

I forgot to mention, besides the results area, also input area's background customization would add more complete look.

Confimed working. Got me thinking: Would it be easy to let aliases turn on this temporarily via a special string? And then revert to default when the alias goes inactive. Could look cool!  8)

I said cool, not useful :D But I was thinking that visual cues for when an alias goes on/off might be a useful reminder/emphasizer. In most cases you of course see and know right away that an alias is activated because, for example, you typed "helpfarr" and that special list shows up. But when using very simple aliases, like  "^b (.+)$" or "^ (.+)$", to modify searches in subtle ways (and so not limit the results to just a few fixed matches), such reminders/emphasizers might be more useful. Hard to tell beforehand though. Maybe it can be compared to the bolding of matching parts in the results list that some launchers have. No essential launcher ingredient in any way, mostly just "visual topping".
