Thanks to this post I was able to finally change the color of windows active title bar but that is it, unfortunately it still leaves many things to be desired. For example:
- How to change the desktop icon text color
- How to change the clock in the taskbar (as well as other taskbar font colors)
- How to change the inactive title bar font color
Is there not a solution that involves copying someone else's preset settings?
I've attempted editing the registry as other posts have mentioned but so far nothing I've edited has changed anything. I've changed the following thus far:
I was eventually able to get some things to change (after 20+ trial and error restarts), but for things like icons I think I need to change the
WindowMetrics but unfortunately those are using binary values that I can't modify without breaking everything (never attempt without a backup).
Would be great if there was a public cheat sheet or some form of documentation on the topic since Microsoft wants to make such a simple task so difficult.
