Sulaco Visual Style – Dexpot Tutorial

As requested, here’s a tutorial showing how to use and configure Dexpot to get roll-up and default transparency on Explorer windows.

I know that I’m super slow on updating SVS. I have a lot of stuff that are keeping me busy but I’ll try to release a new version of the theme after I’m done with my current AMV project. For the moment, I just want to show you a bit how to play with Dexpot which is the program that I mentioned in my SULACO System post that I use to optimize my screen space (rollup windows) and to set behaviour of windows (transparency, click action, etc…).


Here’s a presentation of my current (#4) main computer :
