Additional toolbars


These skins consist mainly of a toolbar with a background image. Unless otherwise specified these skins will work well with versions of K-Meleon prior to v0.8, but may need to edit the toolbars.cfg file in order to get them to work properly with K-Meleon v0.8 and above. These are rather ancient and some have missing buttons, while on the Themes page you'll find more modern skins.

You can very simply change the background of your menu toolbars on top, and put there any photo or image you like: Simply rename and save your new image as "back.bmp", and put it into the folder of your current skin. If you want to backup the old image first, rename it to something like "back.bmp.ori" first or move it elsewhere. If an image is rather small, it will be tiled, just like backgrounds on websites.

Make sure backgrounds are switched on:
Edit > Preferences (F2) > GUI Appearance. There's a checkbox to "Display Toolbar Background". Restart the browser after all changes.

Possible problems: May not work with all modern windows themes (transparency?), and not sure about images with own transparency. Just try it, and in the worst case you can always click F2 again and disable the toolbar background.

Magic Backgrounds by boogomatic:

These backgrounds are semi-transparent and allow you to use your system colours. Select them as you would a skin and they will be used with the default toolbar icons. No need to restart, just open a new window or layer. (info outdated)

Additional toolbars

These toolbars can be added to the theme you use, you have just to put them into your skin folder, and to add them into the toolbars.cfg file. These are rather old, and more or less now already included out of the box.

Zoom Bars BMP by Rapido
A collection of zoom bars made by me for users to use with various themes of your own choice. I thought this might come in handy if users want something different instead of the ones that are already in the themes.

A collection of different looking media bars made by me for users to use with various themes of your own choice. I thought this might come in handy if users want something different instead of disrupteds mediabar that comes with his extension.
