Is there a way to change the color ?

Hi, is ther any way to change the color from this light blue to anything else ?

Because everything else seems to be fine, I try not to change the theme.

For changing the color on various things like the text in the message box or even reply window here once a new theme changes the default color layout seen with Windows you can manually tweak those through the Personalize>Windows Color>Advanced section when right clicking on a blank area of the desktop.

THe image there looks like the background like your desktop around the edges of the IE window. For seeing that in addition to the wallpaper with the transparency the "Application background" is the item to select. When opening a full screen program like a pc game you will see the change noticed right away.

When first applying a few new themes the only thing visible in any Windows Explorer window was the folder icons not even the names of the folders could be seen. The Advanced section is where to go for color control there.

Hi Night Hawk, thanks for your prompt reply !

Well, I went to Advanced Appearance Settings and changed the color of Application Background, but I cannot see a difference at all.

Mmmm ....

That was more of an example of how that would effect applications when they first load. The images you posted look like the corner of the IE window against a blue desktop in the background there. You can see that in the image here as well.

A larger view would show if that was the desktop or a shadow around the IE window itself there. Then you would need to look at things like shadows under menus and the like the Advanced performance settings. Note how one theme makes things unreadable with a black background I still haven't been able to change here.
