Change Color and Appearance selections

Is there a way to change the 'color and appearance' selections to solid colors? Currently it has only the fading dark to light, bottom to top with ripples options.

I want to make one solid from top to bottom. I could not find an answer in the forum, but I could have missing it....

Thanks

Here is a screen shot of what I'm trying to do. Note the blue background fades and has lighter streaks running thru it. I want to make it solid so there is one continual solid blue background. Hope this helps and sorry for the delay but have been traveling for a while.

If you are using the default aero theme I can change that for you.
If you are using a custom theme you will need to ask the
theme maker. It's not cool to change someone else work.

You will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.
