Welcome to the Seven Forums

You will need to edit the Steam image 971 in the aero.msstyles with a resource hacker and a image editor of your choice (look at the screenshot I have provided will show the locations of those buttons)

I would recommend that you start a new theme from scratch so you do not corrupt the original look at Post #38 Here it will show you how. This becomes a custom theme.

You will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.
