    Sorry if this has been posted but I found this link from someone on a different forum. It's a simple fix to change the aqua scroll bars in Leopard to the ones familiar to iLife and iTunes. Worked great and looks much better. Here's the link, sorry I have no pic.

    Interesting that the resource file goes into the Carbon framework, which presumably means Finder is still a carbon app rather than a cocoa one. I'm sure there was some talk about finder moving under the cocoa framework: Guess they ran out of time!

    Thanks for posting this, it looks great. Personally, I love the new Leopard look, but I thought the old Aqua scroll bars look awkward with Leopard's darker theme. This makes it much better.

    thank you soo very much indeed!

    those jelly beans scrollbars didn't match the sober graphite look at all ... finally my mac looks nice and mature.

    Very nice. Now just need someone to figure out how to get the column headings to match the iTunes style

    Before I try this. Is it safely uninstallable?

    As long as you make a backup of the original Extras.rsrc all you have to do is replace the file to bring it back.

    Wow, this really looks great and makes everything within Leopard more consistent looking. Makes me wonder why Apple didn't do this before they released 10.5 to the masses.
