Hi, lilsting10, it seems we have a common problem - I also have vision problems since birth and that is why I also do not like the default blue scheme of Vista / 7.
Now I do not remember exactly which elements I had to change to get the selection dark green.
As far as I remember I recolored some of the bitmaps in Ave Vista/Windows 7 StyleBuilder:
Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Items View > ListView > ListItem (items for left side of folder view)
Explorer & Shell > Explorer > ListView > ListItem (items in Save as, Open dialogs)
Explorer & Shell > Explorer > TreeView > TreeItem (some other tree items on the left)
but I am not 100% sure if those are enough because I recolored almost every bitmap to dark green or gray, and set other color options so selected items are inverted (light letters on dark green back). Unfortunately I had to redesign Explorer selected items to light green and black text, because of the problem I mentioned before - some programs do not accept white text setting, so they show black on dark green, and that is bad.
Only for menus I left dark green selection and white text. Some programs still do not accept such coloring and show black text on dark green in menus, but there are not so many such programs, so I can live with that.
Also I replaced some elements (buttons, checkboxes, radiobuttons) with those from XP - they have more contrast in colors, so easier to see.
Now my explorer looks the following way: http://i283.photobucket.com/albums/k...rs/themegr.png
