Image # for Start Menu "All Programs" background

What is the image # for the "All Programs" background. This is not the "Recent List" (809, 811, 812, 815) which opens first when you press the "Start Menu" button. I exported all the images and have tried several and none have worked. thanks...

In Windows Style Builder it's a fill color if you are using a resource hacker I do not know how to get to it.

If you are going to change it with WSB, would it change the original image numbers?

I was afraid of that. I guess I will have to live with it unless I can find the address of the hex code - I want to try and maintain the original MS layout. thanks Jerry

WSB comes with a Differences Tool & give a text file that shows the different #s if that would help.

It looks like a good idea, but let me think it over and I will get back with you either way. I do have a question about WSB; why does it change the image numbers?
