Windows Explorer Selected Item Text Color

Is it possible to change the text color on items in windows explorer list/tree depending on it's state (hovered/selected/selected not focused/not focused hover)? I have Windows Style Builder.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

For the navigation panel on the left side:

Explorer & Shell > Explorer > TreeView > TreeItem > Hot, Selected, etc. TEXTCOLOR:COLOR click on the color swatch and the color window will open up and you could choose your color.

Hi Bongo, thank you

The treeview works great but the list view doesn't. Is it possible with the listview as well?

The listview in the black box is what I wanna change. For example CSC is selected and I want to be able to change the text color when it is. Is this possible?

Change the text color at Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Items View > ItemsView

Thanks! That changes the color of the listview but I want something more. I want the text color to change when an item is selected or hovered over etc. For example, in my image CSC is selected, I want to be able to change the "CSC" text to a different color when it's in that state. I'm not sure if this is possible.

It's not possible just normal and selected text color.

Yeah, I thought so because I tried every color setting in there. Was hoping there would be a hidden one. Thanks though!
