  • Hi Mukesh,

    Almost the same steps to custom view style on SharePoint 2003 and 2010. And we can find the VWSTYLES.XML file from following location.
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\GLOBAL\XML

    We can  create a new style by coping from an existing style.

    1. Don't forget to change ViewStyle ID.
    2. We need IIS reset to apply the changes.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Emir
