Windows 7: Toolbar/Minimize/Maximize Colors

04 Feb 2010   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium
Toolbar/Minimize/Maximize Colors

Hi all,

I installed QAlign2 program. When I launched the program, a message appeared on the screen telling me that the program does not support current (the original Sony Vaio theme for Windows 7) and therefore it switched to Windows 7 Basic theme and that after closing the program the theme will switch back to the original one.

However, the program did not launch within three minutes. I restarted the computer and the running theme was Windows 7 Basic. So I changed it to the original Sony Vaio theme but I noticed that something strange occurred: background highlight color of toolbar icons (I have Recycle Bin and Cygwin shortcuts there) was not of the Sony Vaio theme anymore, but that of Windows 7 Basic, i.e. cyan. The same highlight color was also used for minimize and maximize buttons.

I tried other themes, but the cyan color is now in all themes (except Windows Classic and High Contrast Themes). How could that happen? Is there any possibility to restore the theme-specific toolbar/maximize/minimize button highlight colors? And related question - can these colors be customized?

Thanks for any help,

My System SpecsSystem Spec
