Windows 7: customizing Aero colors

I installed StyleBuilder and I'm trying to work with it. I changed all the colors in Fonts, Colors & System Metrics, but when I tested it, nothing happened. I then went as far as creating a test folder and test.theme in Resources > Themes as I have done successfully in the past when modifying Aero, but it was depressingly unchanged. Any idea what's wrong? Thanks.

That color that you wanted to change on page is at Fonts, Colors & System Metrics > Fonts & System Metrics > BTNFACE:COLOR

I'm not sure what other troubles you are having as a hint you cannot be editing the theme if you are using it you need to switch to a different theme log off log back on and then you can edit other theme. Make sure you use the test button to test.

OK, for starters, I see no BTNFACE:COLOR. This is what I get when I have page at Fonts, Colors & System Metrics > Fonts & System Metrics. If I search for BTNFACE, I get nothing.

You know, it doesn't respond to scrolling for me, and I figured there just wasn't any more to see. But since you said that, I tried using the arrow keys, and that worked. Crisis averted . . . for now. Thanks!

hey there -- I'm starting to get awfully tired of the green progress bars in Windows 7, but I can't seem to find a setting to change the color. I've done some searching, but all that I've found seems to involve installing a new theme file, which I don't want to do - I've already got a theme...
