IE8 Background color

Does anyone know how to make the IE8 background black? Can you do this without having to apply a whole theme?

The default blue for IE8 should be able to be changed without changing your theme [which doesn't affect IE anyway].

Someone here has to know how to do this I'm thinking.

That's for how web pages are rendered, not the actual browser toolbar colors. That's the first thing I tried before making this thread. Thanks anyway though.

Again, the only solution offered is third party software. That's not what I'm looking for.

change background colour

1.You Just need to go to Tools Internet options and at the bottom of the Screen Choose Colors. set the new background color you want ( make a custom one the standard are a bit bright).
2. Then you need to click the Accessibility across from the color button and check the box "Ignore colours specified on webpage".

Actually, to change the IE toolbar colors, you need to right-click on the Desktop, select Personalize, Window Color and Appearance, click on Advanced. Under "Item" there is a drop down menu with a long list of all of the items on the screen that can be changed, and one of them will control the toolbar for IE. Sorry, I don't remember which one, but I believe it is either: 3D Objects, Icon, Menu, Message Box, Selected Items, or Window.

Any update on this? I would use IE8 more if I could change the browsers color to charcoal or black.
