You can skin Chrome, but how can I change the default blue top bar color in Chrome application shortcuts? I mean the thing that turns a web app into a pseudo desktop app, reachable via Page menu -> Create application shortcut. For some reason it ignores my theme settings... I just want to turn it from light blue to dark blue or something on Windows.

Hi Philipp :) I don't believe there is a way to do it.

Thanks in any case. – Philipp Lenssen Oct 4 '09 at 9:03

I just tried this. In Windows Vista, when you have Theme "Windows Aero" loaded, you can change the color of the windows from control panel > Appearance and PErsononalization> Personalization> Windows colors and Appearance.

You can change the color at this location. Chrome will reflect this setting.

This is for Windows Vista only.

Hope this helps.
