I set WindowText to 255 255 255 but taskbar text color remains black. The text color in all input boxes however became white so I'm typing this blindly :). As per this link WindowText correspond to "Window field text, inset area text & msg box." – Sergey Kraev Sep 6 '13 at 12:34

Scroll down to High Contrast Theme and have fun changing the colors!
