window color setting, notepad color setting, and other questions

1. how do i change the "windows explorer" background color from white, the left pane, and the right pane

2. how do i change notepad's background color from white

3. how do i change the "start" menu color, left pane, and right pane

4. please do not post how to change the "desktop" color; like, 'duh', i am not that slow

5. i have installed windows 7 on a ryzen 7 2700, evopro m.2, fatality b450 itx ac, evga 750ti desktop, and it runs like greased lightening. i would like to write a walkthrough on sevenforums, but have found that more times than not, my volunteer hours are taken for granted. is there a way to write such a thing, is there collaboration on this site ?

1. i'm not sure how you can tell from this screenshot that it's win 7; maybe the win 10 device manager looks just like this; i don't know.
2. looks like there is some old hardware on here, but yes, i even used a honeywell keyboard with an xt interface to build this thing (you will only need a wired keyboard). the mechanical hdd was an integral part of the install process. and finally, i ported my 750ti from my old desktop because you can't beat that card for performance v.s. tdw. and the other thing i ported was my kingwin power supply. it's going on right now, and you want me to share, i'd be happy to do so

Win 7 Ult 64-bit

1--Control Panel>Display>Personalization>Window Color. The name "window color" is deceptive.
You can make your own color scheme there, changing window color, menu bar color, title bar, caption buttons, etc. Also font and size of text and other elements.
2--Notepad will be whatever you set as your window color. You can't set it separately.

3-- same as #1

4-- not posting this

5--Walkthrough of what? Do you want to instruct other people on how to use that exact same machine?
