Windows 7: Need help with a Theme

Need help with a Theme

Hello.

I need help modding the theme Soft 7 2.0. I only have Resource Hacker as I cannot afford Vista Style Builder, But there are a few things I do not like about the theme (as my preference (black)).

1: The Close, Minimise and Maximise buttons are really hard to see. Is there any way to make them white or something?


2: There are two things: 1 - can I make the bar with my Computer on completely White and secondly how can I make the FolderBand Grey/Black?


3: How can I remove all glows and make the text white?

I previously had a light Soft theme as the dark's were hard to see, but now I am having to change all my Icons again -.-

Post a link to the theme I will look at it.

For the close/min/max buttons go to Window Color and Appearance > Caption button and raise it 1 or 2 numbers

Oh and sorry if I am being a nuisance, but 2 more things:



Don't worry about the Triangle and All Programs text.



This will make it easier to see the White Token Icons instead of seeing it on a Black Background. Just changed that to 23.

What do you want to change here?

Most of what you want changed needs to be done with Windows Style Builder so you should ask the maker to change it or buy WSB

I don't know how or what I did but I think changing Caption Buttons to 23 made my Close, Maximise and Minimise like I wanted.

The close/min/max sign has 4 dpi setting in the .msstyles 96,120,144,196 when you changed the Caption buttons seting it changed to the next dpi setting some theme makers only do the 96dpi thats why, if the theme maker would have done all 4 it would not have worked for you.
