I have enabled both of options to compress NTFS files, and to show affected items with an alternative color under Exprorer->Tools->Folder Options. The issue I'm having is with the default color. To change the undesired presentation-color of files, a certain registry entry can be populated with four "RGB bytes"


However, this affects the regular list of files in explorer. My intention is to change the color in the list of search results. Is there a similarly straight forward way to specify the color of compressed files in the search plugin?

           Strawberry-perl-*.msi should be orange

Blue Strawberry

What this screen shot shows:

  • illegible blue color
  • more suitable orange color
  • registry value manipulated to get the desired color
  • the hex of those four bytes in GIMP color selector
