Windows 7: Window Color and Appearance - Change

Hi, I just went thro your tutorial and manipulated some menu which allowed me to change font colour and window colour .Once i changed, even windows menu explorer becomes invisible to eye, but on moving cursor, i could see the black menus as usual.
I thought that i could revert back, but could not.
For eg: the default notepad is white and the font is black, it was ulta in my case, as in cmd prompt.
Like wise, i did not remember what i changed, but the apperarance changed dramatically, with the url tab becoming black and font becoming white, but search shows as usual in white and green .
Please i would request you to make a download so that anybody inadvertantly changing the settings could restore to their default settings.

Ok, I understand now.

If you like, you can change your theme to another "Aero Theme" (ex: "Windows 7") to use its default colors instead.

Hello!

For some reason, I cannot change my Windows 7 Areo Colors (Cant see what is on steps 1-6)

Hello Milo, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you have the "Home Premium" edition, you would need to use Option Two instead.

In addition, double check the items in the red warning box at the top of the tutorial to see if you meet the requirements for Aero.
