[Help] Windows 7 Text Colors

Hello.

I'm kind of new, 1st post, so sorry for any mistakes or whatever.

Anywho, on to the topic at hand.

See that REALLY dark text that displays the size etc. of the file/folder?

That's the problem, I want to make it so it's grey, or at least white. Preferably a custom color, and problem is, I can't seem to find the right place to configure it.

I'm using a dark theme, I don't know the name. I really need help with this. And yes, I've tried "Change windows colours and metric" or something like that, I didn't seem to find an option to configure THAT specific text which is the problem.

Thank you in advance for the help!

Welcome to the Seven Forums

That text color is hard coded and no one has found it.

Damn it. Ah, I guess I'll have to find another theme or something then.

Thanks for the help!

Good day, I installed this software on the same day I built the system, love it and there have been no issues. About an hour ago as I was logging off my favorite Game (wow) I noticed that my taskbar color changed on it's own, from black to Silver - highly annoying. I have been fiddling...
