Windows 7: Advanced appearance customizations

03 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Advanced appearance customizations

Ever since Windows 3.1, there is this "Advanced Appearance" diaglog box where I could customize specific elements of the GUI. However, this dialog has not changed much up to Win 7, where it is woefully inadequate now. The available "Items:" list has not change at all, but there has been so many new objects and elements added to the GUI since the Win 3.1 days.

Is there a more advanced tool to allow more control over Window 7's GUI elements? For example, I want to be able to customize Window Explorer's fonts, background colors, without affecting other fonts I've set for the Desktop or other apps.
