Windows 7: Strange Background Tint In Folder Windows

10 Feb 2014   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

The tint in the folder background is a normal part of Windows. You can see it in the screenshot I linked in my first post.

As far as graphics settings and hardware is concerned, they are not causing any issues. My monitor is an IPS and color calibrated. I'm a cleanliness freak which is why I got my monitor calibrated to display colors as accurately as possible. And I got really irked when I realized the folder background had a yellow tint like someone peed on it

So I came here to look for help. The best Windows 7 community.

But I still get the tinted color in the background of my folders...

I know of AveFolderBG and the background changer from door2windows, but they use an image to set as the background plus it doesn't change the navigation pane.
I would like them to be set as pure white color (without requiring an image if possible)

I found this thread Customizing the left Folder Panel and Folder Background. How? and it says to edit the following using Windows Style Builder:

Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Items View > Items View > Fillcolor
Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Proper Tree > <2> - fillcolorhint:color

Any way I can edit them without having to pay for software?
I'm sorry I forgot to change to pure white it was 252,252,252 I changed it to 255,255,255

Download and extract the zip folder to your desktop switch to the default Aero theme and then log off and log back on.

Replace the No_Color_Frame.msstyles in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\No_Color_Frame theme folder with the 1 in the zip folder.
