How to...

1. Locate the user directory

On Windows, you can click Start > Run (Windows-Key + R) or use the search box in the Vista start menu and enter %APPDATA% to open the user directory. Here are some examples of user directory locations:
Windows XP:C:/Documents and Settings/YourUserName/Application Data/ Windows Vista: C:/Users/YourUserName/AppData/Roaming/
Mac OS: /Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences/
Linux: /home/YourUserName/.appdata/

There you can find a folder starting with de.betriebsraum.minitask. In Local Store/styles/ and Local Store/sounds/ are the files that you can edit.

2. Edit and reload changes

Open minitask.css in any text editor and modify the values there (please notice the comments for some of the values). Save the file and click Reset window in the application menu (right-click on system tray/dock icon) to see the changes.

If you want to restore the original configuration just delete the styles and sounds folders. They will be recreated automatically the next time MiniTask is started.
