Windows 7: Windows 7 | Third-Party Theme

31 Jul 2015   #1

Windows 7 | Third-Party Theme

I decided to do a full redo of my workspace. I did a full scan with BitDefender 2015 Total, I optimized startup, cleaned out junk files, my Windows rating is up to a 7.1 overall out of 7.9, keep in mind this is a laptop.

I use a non-aero third party theme as well so it saves memory and still has amazing visual appeal from my perspective. Only two problems I've noticed so far, and I'm sure I can figure out how to fix them, I just need something to do it with. You'll see what I mean in a second.

First off, the clock, you see in the picture below that it's still white, I'd like to make it match the rest of the system, but any other styles I find just don't match quite right. A reference will be at the bottom of this post. It'll be a screen cap showing my two problems compared with the style of the rest of the system.

My second problem is a white space spanning across the top area of my control panel. I know that something in the system tells that space to be white, and I'm hoping some fine people on here might know exactly what that is so I can tweak it to match the rest.

Picture is below:
