Hi Rick,
Go to the blind-geek-zone web site, and click on audio, then do a find, then 
type in vista goes classic then hit enter, and you should be on a link for a 
tutorial by Rick Harmon about how to make vista look like classic view in xp.

  Subject: [guispeak] hiding desktop most of the time

  Hello everyone,

  Last year, after a computer crash, I upgraded from Windows XP to Vista.  One 
  feature annoys me.

  In XP and earlier, the Desktop was hiddem most of the time when not 
  fpecifically invoked.  Of course, Windows-M would invoke it.  I find that 
  the behavior of screen readers to read it when I switch application to be 
  annoying.  This sometimes happens, even when I am not on the Desktop.  I 
  mostly use the start and programs menu for what I do.  Is there a way to get 
  Vista to behave more like XP in this regard?
