Possible to export a windows scheme?

I've been messing around with the colors for everything using the scheme option in the Appearance section of display properties of win98se. I can save it in the list, but is it possible to export it to a file so I could make a backup, or share it with others if I came up with something nice?

I found this idea intriguing. I've wondered int he past why you can't download new colors scheme off of the internet.

After digging around some, I found that it appears the values for the schemes are recorded in the registry. They can be found under HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Appearance\Schemes It should be a simple matter of exporting it to a floppy and importing it to the computer you want. I've never tried this and know very little about editing the registry, but it seems like it should work.

Hope this helps.
