Windows 7: Color(s) changing in custom theme

Color(s) changing in custom theme

Hello, I like a lot of people are trying to do a lot with the little knowledge I have of editing resource files. But I downloaded a custom theme from the internet (Dark Vision) and I am trying to customize it to my own personal liking. However as I said, I don't know what I am doing.

If someone here could tell me how to change some specific colors in this theme that would be great

Any help in this matter is greatly appreciated

I attached a picture with arrows pointing to the things I am looking to change: (sorry for the size)

Welcome to Seven Forums Zero Escape. Our resident expert Bongo is away with health issues, and I'm unsure if anyone else has those skills. I certainly don't ;( I have been referring people to Virtual Customs for these theme editing questions, they have many theme creators there. A Guy

Thanks for the heads up. Until I can figure this out, I've resorted to using the base win 7 theme. But again thanks for the information.
