Windows 7: Color of selected files

Color of selected files

I would like to ask, whether someone has any idea how to change the bloody pale blue color of selected files. When I am using advanced settings under "Advanced appearance settings" it changes just the border of the dragged selection - no the selection itself. When I stop dragging, the selected files are have just the same pale blue color as usually, independently on the settings in "Advanced appearance settings".

This isn't an easy "option" you can click on. You'll need to modify some system files, basically make your own theme, then you'll need to "patch" the system files that will allow you to run unofficial themes. If you want to go that far....

Welcome to Seven Forums CabbageTree. This has been asked before, and I have spent considerable time trying to find an answer, but even MS admits this is not possible through any normal windows settings. A Guy
