I can't find how to change the color of Windows 7 menu bar while using Aero theme. I only want to change the Menu Bar's color.
Basic and High Contrast Themes themes of Windows 7 can change the color.
Those kind of themes are customized using
Personalization > Window Color and Appearance, but the
Menu color property when changed doesn't take effect while using Aero theme.
As seen in the image, I've tested some customization seen in the preview pane of the
Window Color and Appearance
- Change the components color to green
- Change the text color to white
- Change the
Menu Bar's text color to gray
- FAILED: Change the
Menu Barcolor to purple
It seems that it doesn't even work in the preview. The
Window Color and Appearance is created for customization of
Windows 7 Basic Theme or
Ease of Access theme. It may not be intended for Aero, but even Aero users will still have the same Menu Bar color at every application.
There are applications like Adobe Inc. products that have custom Menu Bar for their GUI. But the default look/color of the Menu Bar for Windows Explorer and other apps are just using the look/color from the theme.
So how could I change the color of Menu Bar while using Aero theme?
