Do you want both sides blue or white?

Here is what I get when I open it up and test it with Windows style builder.

I believe this is the third time but is at Fonts, Colors & System Metrics > Fonts & System Metrics > WINDOWTEXT:COLOR and it is going to change other areas like the text in the task manager, notepad.

i am sorry for being a pain in the ass but this theme Browsing deviantART has got the same font colors on both sides without it affected other areas, so i thought i could edit the razer theme so the fonts are the same on both side without effecting other areas...if its been done in one theme surely it can be done in another...

OK I installed it and I see what you mean and I looked at the locations for those text and they are the light gray color like in the task manager, I replaced the whole NormalColor folder in that theme with one from the original Aero theme and tested it and then text colors change from blue to the light gray. So with that being said the theme creator has edited the shellstyle.dll or the shellstyle.dll.mui located at C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\ESCL Energy G_Laser\Shell\NormalColor folder,
So you will have to look and see how that was done in the shellstyle.dll or the shellstyle.dll.mui.

Either one restorator or resource hacker would probably work, my best guess would be you need to edit the shellstyle.dll UIFILE I have never done it so I would not even know what to change. All I could suggest is that you compare the default one with a modified one can see what has changed.

I have one more suggestion would be to ask the theme maker what they have changed.

I just used this site DiffNow - Compare files online. Powered by ExamDiff Pro. and put in the UIFILE (this is just a text file) from the original and from the modified one and it shows where the differences are there are nine give it a try.
