Hello Promat, and welcome to Seven Forums.

To be able to change a explorer window background while using a Aero instead of Classic theme, you could use a 3rd party program like Stardock's Windowblinds. You can try it as a demo for 30 days to see how you like it first.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Did you try usermade visual styles as found on deviantart yet?

I think they are capable of changing the backgrounds color.

Thank You Brink and devftw. Easy way is change to classic style no problem but Fonts in Classic looks almost invisible I dont know maybe because ClearType is off or something. Of course look at Deviantart is nothing but I read something about explorer.exe replacement it is safe? I hope.. Yes! and thank you once again for help - your cheers!
