Windows Explorer Properties window background color

I have installed third part theme Placebo Ashtray, spent hours to find how to make Properties window background not so black.

Please let me know where is this option located.

You could wait forever and a day to find another member using this theme, I would suggest your best bet is to go onto the deviantart Forum

Welcome to the Seven Forums

That would be image #905 in the Ashtray.msstyles if you are using a resource hacker.

If you are using Windows Style Builder it would be at Lists, Menus & Tabs > Tab > Pane

Sorry for late reply,
I gave you the wrong image # it is #906 sorry.
I have a hard time with resource hacker so I sometimes use Anolis Resourcer - Resource Hacker Software - Anolis
You cannot edit a theme when in use, Switch to a new theme then logoff/logon then do the following.
