taskbar color problem

I am using my own picture for my desktop. However the task bar wil not change colors. It's staying gray.

If I use one of windows 7 desktop pictures the taskbar does change colors.

How can I change the color of the taskbar using my own picture.

thank you

Change the colour of the taskbar by using a wallpaper?
Not sure about that.
Maybe adjusting the window border colour via this button?

Or if you want it leaking through to the wallpaper, make sure the 'Enable transparency' option is checked.

On your first row of pictures i do not have a transparency showing. On your second row you do and so do i. How can i get this transparency and or task bar color to showup on the top row.

Also I do not have a windows color custom. It only says windows color.

Now I also have problems with my back button. It will not always go back. I have to reboot for it to work.

It would not let me do that. It said must be administrator.

Ok then. Just type in cmd but only press enter.
Type in

net user administrator /active:yes

press enter. Log off, then log onto the new account there.
try the other cmd command now.

I guess I must be doing this wrong. Yes I am the administrator. But I got this message. Must be administrator running a console session in order to use the utility.
