Windows 7 (non-Aero) uses a very low contrast white font color on my light blue taskbar. Personalize > Window Color does not offer an option to change the taskbar font.
For Aero Themes the solution seems to be http://www.sevenforums.com/customization/24620-change-taskbars-font-color.html as two posters have been pointing out. However this does not solve my problem.
Is there any way to change this font in a non-Aero (i.e. Basic) UI Theme?
