I got it but am I supposed to do anything else besides just double clicking on it? It didn't change the scrollbar colors. But now there is a black highlight in the searchbox in explorer and that shouldn't be there. I think I might have to do something besides just opening it. I installed other themes by using the "theme manager" program.

Go to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\ and look for a premiere folder then replace the .msstyles with the 1 I edited.

Hello, I did not want to necro this thread but I want to make the exact same changes to the same theme so I figured it would be better to use this post rather than make a brand new one.

If you still have that edited file would you mind PMing it to me bongo

Here is the file

I still have it so here you go: http://1drv.ms/1dGu7GQ

Are you making any other changes to it? Also I don't know how to edit these things but could you combine this file I am sharing with you with this: Black Progressbar Windows 7 by Auke1001 on deviantART

I think that would really complete the theme.

I'll look into it, I didn't plan on making other changes because I don't know how to but I might try to learn to tweak some small stuff.

Sorry for grabbing out this topic but my question is directly related to the msstyles file.

I was able to apply it and now have black scroll bars, which I like much better than the old ones. But I was wondering, if I could change the color using e.g. msstyleEditor or any other tool. Apparently the image 710 is import for the scroll bar color but I think you also added 811, 1074 and 1075 and changed some other images.

If only I knew which images to replace, I think I could change the color myself. Or is there maybe a tool where you can change the scroll bar color of msstyle files more easily?
