Changing Titlebar/Top Toolbar in Windows 7

Hi,

I am using the Windows 7 Aero theme that comes with Windows 7. I have in the personalisation menu, changed the colour to black and made it darker (using the brightness slider in colour mixer). This is all great but some areas are a blue gradient. I've attached a cropped screenshot below and drew a red box around the area I want to turn black and darker. Any ideas?

This doesn't do what I ask unfortunately. What item in the item box would I need to change? I've changed lots of items and it doesn't do what I'm looking for.

I think maybe this might be able to help you out? Maybe get you a bit further to your goal atleast? Maybe some where in regedit you may see a setting for the color? Anyways, maybe I'm wrong, but I hope this some how helps you out.

I don't think that helps either. I ran a page search for "color" and "colour" and no results show up. I think I will have to leave it as it is. I am hoping Windows 10 is more customisable.
