In an application (Visual Studio 2010) the tabs of files that are opened in the editor are always brownisch, whatever Windows theme I use. There is a plugin for VS2010 (Visual Studio Color Theme Editor) that supports customization of theme colors, and it works except for tab coloring - anybody an idea? Windows XP.

I wouldn't. This is hardly programming-related. – Joey Jun 21 '10 at 8:44
hardly programmming-related question, but you can find more Visual Studio 2010 users on ^^ – mcha Jun 21 '10 at 11:37

The Productivity Power Tools for Visual Studio 2010 allow you to color code your tabs by project or regular expressions.

See Tab Well 2010 included in the power tools extensions.

I was going to suggest the exact same thing. PPT is an excellent Visual Studio extension. – Fopedush Apr 2 '11 at 4:27
