Details pane customization

How can I change the color of details pane in Windows Explorer? I'm trying to modify Soft7 visual style to suite my needs.. I've found allmost everything else, but I can't find the way to change this. Is it a bitmap in shellstyle.dll, msstyles, or something else?

Hi Morpheus

Are you using Windows Style Builder?

I tried to do it using Restorator (and Photoshop), but i also have Vista style builder installed. In VSB i found the way to change the top part (Explorer&Shell - Explorer - Command module) but i still can't see the bitmap for Details pane.

Okay, since i have the newer version of VSB i can't know 100% if this is the right location but try (also it's a PNG not a BMP)

Explorer & Shell > Explorer > PreviewPane > <1> > <1>

The image is usually use for this is 650x134, but you can make it other sizes if you want too (i think lol)

Also you should be able to edit it in Restorator as image 1022

Oh and if you need more help with WSB/VSB/making themes, head over to www.virtualcustoms.net
We are a few experienced themers over there, + there's some wsb/vsb/theming guides and tuts over there

Wow, finally! Thank you so much! It was image 903 in this visual style, but the location is correct: Explorer&Shell - Explorer - PreviewPane - <1> - <1>

I'm afraid that might have something to do with the width/hight of the different images
