Change desktop background color - Windows Style Builder

How do you do this in WSB? I know how to do it in Windows but it's too troublesome.

Spores mate have no idea what WSB is and there is a serious lack of machine specs we need first.

Hi ICIT2LOL

WSB = Windows Style Builder. I'm not sure that my specs are relevant, or is that a rule here? I'm just trying to edit my windows theme.

No mate not a rule in itself but ti does help to know what CPU GPU board laptop model RAM etc etc one is using because those specs impact on what any particular machine is capable of. For all we know this machine could be over 10 years old (may not support Windows 7) not have enough RAM have a well out of date GPU.

It wasn't meant to chip you over not having them in your post. It is your choice my friend not to divulge the specs but without them as I think I mentioned really hard trying to help to fix something without knowing exactly or reasonably exactly what we are dealing with. If you want to see what I mean just click on My system specs (yes me!) - bottom left hand corner on my post back

For example it would be like having a 1998 V8 Ford station wagon car then saying to a mechanic my car isn't running properly - what is the first thing he is going to ask you


Edit An old thread but might give you some ideas Where can i find Windows Style Builder?

OK done.

Actually I already have WSB and am learning to use it. Jerry (Bongo) helped me out with a WSB tweak in a recent thread.
