Mouser - still waiting to hear where in Vista Basic or Aero themes, SC gets the dark blue - gray for tool bars background. Please tell me how to hack / skin it; make it selectable from prefs; change it to something that doesn't almost hide several icons. I can't eat or sleep. Spouse is threatening to leave if it's not changed.
tomos - There's no drama (light hearted sarcasm) here & cmpm just missed a detail in reading the posts, like we all have.
Again - AFAICT - there are no colors used or displayed
, in my setup of Vista Basic theme (or Aero)
that match the color used for SC tool bars background.
ONLY using Windows Classic
OR - Windows Standard
Themes (nothing to do w/ Vista styles) allows selecting EXACT colors used in Active / Inactive title bar.
AND changing "3D Objects"
color, that changes the SC tool bars color
However, Windows Classic & Standard themes are VERY plain & old fashioned looking.
* Users shouldn't be forced to use very old style, plain themes
under Vista, to change
dark SC tool bars color.
* I've not seen ANY other apps use such dark toolbar color, in ANY theme under Vista. In Vista Basic or Aero themes, virtually all other apps' tool bars display a light
gray or MUCH lighter
blue gray (sometimes a gradient) - if not customizable.
* Some free, open source some apps' UI (toolbar etc.) use Vista Basic or Aero colors
; Keepass Password Safe uses the color set for 3D Objects for its menu. So it's possible to use other colors set in Vista Appearance & Settings for UI objects.
Testing of changing themes & overall theme color in Aero
(orange, red, default, etc) AND Vista BASIC does NOT change SC's tool bars color (see screen shot).
Example: BleachBit toolbar is about as dark as any apps get (besides SC):
