You can set each one of them, and you can see for yourself what they control. For example, what you can do (and this is what I did) is you experiment with each one. For example, make one a super-bright color, like fuschia, and save it. Then go through you system to see what changed to that color. Then, after you make that setting the final color you really want, go on to the second one, and make that a different color. And so on. . .

I'd start with "Window" since the browser is just another program with a window. But then all your windows will look that way as well.

If I remember correctly, the "Window" link in the Advanced drop down menu list controls:

Word docs “Automatic” text color,
Menu Titles + Program Names titles in Windows Explorer,
Menu of Programs in Start Bar when All Programs is clicked,
Website addresses in Address Bar,
List items (not headings) in Control Panel, + Drop down menu lists.

There may be other things too, but I'm not aware of them. Why don't you check it out and let us know?
