Windows 7: Too light for me

13 May 2010   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32 bit
Too light for me

How does one make the menur "divider lines" (can't think of another term) darker? For example, right-click on the start globe. Reveals "properties" and "windows explorer." But when mousing over them, the highlighting & divider lines are so light that it's hard to see which is highlighted. Any fixes out there?

This is a function of your theme. It can be modified through the advanced settings of Window Color as well I think.

Start > Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Personalization > Window Color > Advanced Appearance Settings > Selected Items

Just change the background color and text in that item and it should change what highlighted items look like. If you cannot get it to work the way you want, you can always install a custom theme.

I wasn't sure where to post forgive me if I was wrong. I have been having a problem with what I think is my HDD, but yet again I'm not completely sure. Anyways my HDD is brand new, its a WD Caviar Black 1TB 7200RPM, all the stress tests come back with positive results when I run them...
