The default in Windows 7 is blue and red. How do I change those colors to something like gray and black to match my custom theme?

Well, it is certainly possible, as the desktop modders on DeviantART have been doing it.

I would think that will need to use Resource Hacker (last beta version for x64) or similar resource editor, like XN Resource Editor and open shellstyle.dll. The bitmap that you will need to replace will be in there somewhere.

Back in 2001, I was so appalled by the Luna theme in XP that I made my own. It was very simplistic, but later on I just used a self-modified version of the Royal Noir theme, with thin window title bars. – paradroid Aug 15 '10 at 1:13

Yes, You can change the color from disk management. Right click on computer click on manage a new window computer management will pop up. On top click on VIEW tab then click on settings. Now can change the color according to your theme.

He's talking about the colour of the bars in Computer, not in Disk Management. – paradroid Aug 14 '10 at 21:03
