In your signature you have the text - "War Determines Only Who is Left, Not Who is Right."

You had been saying that not many people have replied to this thread. In order for more people to see it, you may want to place a link to it in your signature, with a larger text font. I have done this several times before and leads to a quicker answer to your problem.

hey Tekken179,

If you want to change the font color system side then customize the current windows theme. See attachment.

If you want to customize WMP only then I believe that you need to edit the skin *.wms file that's inside the *.wmz archive. I haven't tested this but you could look it up on MSDN and learn more if you need to.

To get you started, look at the default skin here %programfiles%\Windows Media Player\Skins\Revert.wmz (just change the *.wmz to *.zip and extract it). Inside with the pictures is a *.wms file, open this with notepad you should be able to edit the font sizes and colors inside.

I didn't look at closely as I want to leave some of the fun for you ; but here's the text reference on MSDN so that you can learn how to read and edit the string (if you don't know that is).

Good Luck.

how to i move that box highlighted in red to the bottom of windows explorer windows?
Just stumbled across this article which explains moving the details pane to either the top or bottom of the window. A Google search for "shell32.dll topshell" might yield more results if you still have trouble.

Customizing Windows Captions In Explorer etc.

I've searched the tutorials about file and folder settings but I couldn't find this: The windows explorer has a kind of status bar that can show details about my files. But how can I configure what details I want to see? E.g. when I have a jpg file, Win seems to think it's a photo and it shows...
