Hi Jerry,
I am trying to make the taskbar black (not blue) in Basic. I have failed (see attached image). The sides change to black but the center area remains blue.

I have followed all your directions, importing images I exported from Cryer's Windows 7 Black Basic aero.msstyles file (which has a correct black basic taskbar) to replace the ones in the stock file. I did this because I have not idea what are the correct colors to change from/to in the images although I am good with using Photoshop.

Can you help me correct what I am doing wrong?

Welcome to the Seven Forums

Zip up both the msstyles, the one you want to taskbar from and the one you are changing and post them here and I will look at them.
