Windows 7: Change hot tracking colour

06 May 2016   #11

32-bit Ultimate and Home Premium

Download and extract the zip folder at the bottom of this post to your Desktop.

Put both the Rikkitic theme folder and the Rikkitic.theme file in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes

That works like a charm. It is brilliant. Again, I can't thank you enough for all of your trouble. It is exactly what I wanted.
