That's Great news sometimes WSB can be a little picky & have it keep trying.

Yes, i understand, but tell me, please, where was the problem ?
I wanna try to modify myself with WSB. Just in case, i have already made a backup with the new theme - changes, etc
Is it possible to change the taskbar color, like here in the image ? ( see the blue line )
Or maybe, the active title bars ? I do not mean any color, i mean this nice blue color
( see the image "blue 2" as example )

I do not know what the problem was is hard to say.
Yes you can change the taskbar color with WSB & Photoshop, Gimp, Paint.net Give me a moment & I will get the locations for you

Jerry, i think the location wouldn't be a problem.
The question is : how do i get this nice blue color ?
Another question : i tried 3 minutes before to make some changes with WBS.
I activated Try and Decide, just in case.
After i made some changes with WBS, after log off, the same problem, i couldn't login again.
If you tell me the location, or how to get this nice blue color, or how to modify whatever i want, it doesen't help me to much, because i can't use this modified changes, after i restart.
That's the first and most important problem : i will have to learn exactly how to save my changes, without having those problems on logon.

Yes (look at post # 64) you need to save it where it came from.

Here is a test theme to play with (just a aero theme named to test) put in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes. Then open WSB then hit open then the open box opens chose Open an existing Visual Style from that open box go to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\test make some changes & save it to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\test & see want happens

I played with this "aero test" theme. Everything is fine, i can modify / save or whatever
Try and decide is an option from Acronis True Image, that lets you roll back all changes made to your Windows since you activated it.
After restart you have 2 options : CONTINUE or Discard changes
Now, let's get back to the Snow Leopard theme.
I tested some changes with WSB. I can change some menu colors, but seems to be impossible to change the taskbar color.
One good friend of mine was here today ( he is very good with computers / OS )
He tried everything, but couldn't change the taskbar color.
Do you have any idea why ? As you can see in the printscreen, that's the menu he tried.
