The only way to change that frame would be to edit the .msstyles

Here is ascreenshot showing what the frame looks like. It is zoomed in at 800%. These are four separate images that I placed on a background to show what they look like.

The sizes are
Top 21x27 pixels

Left, Right 11x3 pixels

Bottom 21x11 pixels

Yes, look at screenshot it is zoomed the top 4 images are for the top frame depending on window size. These are just the active window.

Fonts, Colors & System Metrics > Fonts & System Metrics > WINDOWSTEXT:COLOR

Change test color at
Explorer & Shell > Explorer > TreeView > TreeItem > Hot
All the way through to
Explorer & Shell > Explorer > TreeView > TreeItem > HotSelected


#2

Add text color properties to the following
Start Menu > Menus > Aero > KeyBoard:TreeView > TreeItem > Normal
and
Start Menu > Menus > Aero > Hover:TreeView > TreeItem > Normal

When you click on a folder every textcolor in tree changes to Start Menu > Menus > Aero > Hover:TreeView > TreeItem > Hot

BUT the textcolor on the selected folder changes to StartMenu > Menus > Aero > Keyboard:TreeView > TreeItem > HotSelected > TextColor: Color

Here is how to add text color properties

Click on Add Property

Use the drop-down menu under Type choose color under Property choose textcolor then Click OK
