How can i change the taskbar icon background

Its really hard to explain so i made a quick little image:



I want to have a little light instead of a big glass background (indicates that the app is open)
Tried to search on the web but its super hard to describe and i know there should be something that allows me to change it.

Hey Miodec,

Im not sure on exactly how to do this, but i would say your best bet is to go thru the tutorials on here. Brink and many of our veteran members have quite the extensive list.

If nothing, maybe some other members could help out here.

Hope you find what you need,
Ben

Use this tutorial Taskbar Button: Change Color of Orange Flashing Button just edit Normal, Hover, Pressed.

If you are using a 3rd party custom theme then post a link and I will give you the image #s

Hi Jerry, I am sure this is a very nice tutorial. Unfortunately, if you have only 40% vision, all you see is a bunch of black holes. That's too bad.

Private messaging does not yet work for you because you do not yet have sufficient seniority on the forum. It will come with time - patience.
