Windows 7: Simple Aero Theme?

Simple Aero Theme?

I have a new Toshiba laptop with Windows 7, and I kind of miss the simple, single blue color "classic" Windows desktop. At Desktop>Personalize, all the alternative Aero themes seem to me to be equally, well, as silly airy as the default. My question: Is there a simple, single color Aero theme? (I understand that I can bypass Aero altogether by choosing a non-Aero theme, but doing that interferes with my Toshiba DVD player and perhaps other applications.) Thanks.

Hell Stefan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could use any Aero theme, then change your desktop background to use a Solid Color (step 3 at link) of your choice.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
