I wanna modify some background colors and lines.
Here are some images.

So, on the first image, i want to move the buttons a bit more to the right. Is that possible ?
On the second one, when i move the mouse over the icons on Control Panel, the background color is grey. can i change this ?
On the third : the same, in Start Menu, on the right side.
On the fourth : the same, over the partition icons.
And the last one : on the left side, the blue-grey background color. Is that possible to change this color ?
Thanks.

2) Explorer & Shell > Explorer > ListView > ListItem > Hot, Selected etc
3) Start Menu > Panels > Basic > PlacesListHover
4) Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Items View > ListView > ListItem > Hot, Selected etc
5) Bitmaps 632 and 633 in Shell32.dll

Look at my maps in the Tutorials section if you need more locations ok?

Is it possible to reduce the size of this blue hover ? If "Yes" would that affect the same effect when moving the mouse, over partitions ?

Thank you.
Now i have a question about Windows 7 SP1.
I modified a lot of files from the OS, like imageres.dll, msstyles, shell32.dll, and so on.
After i install SP1, will that affect all  those modified files, including my msstyle ?
How do you advice me to proceed, just to make sure i can keep the msstyle like it is now ?
Thanks again.

SP0 files will be deleted and replaced with SP1 files. There's no effect on the msstyles.

Did someone here installed the SP1 ?
I installed and it works okay, i just tried a bit today, but when i change my msstyle from Snow Leopard 1 to Snow Leopard 2, i get the basic theme, and the only Aero theme i can change, is Windows 7 / Arhitectures / Characters / Landscapes ........
Do you have any ideas ?
I restarted my PC several times, tried to change back the Snow Leopard theme ( 1 or 2 ) but no way ....
Thanks in advance, any suggestions / ideas are welcome.

UXStyle is the easiest. It's always up to date because it doesn't use hard patches but rather in-memory. Which means anytime the files are updated it'll still work and you won't have to wait for another patch to release.

Hello, i modified some time ago, some fonts, but i can't find the right location.
Would you tell me where they are, please ? I'm looking to change only the font colors of Local Disk C / D / E / on the left side.
Thanks.

Would you give me an idea, please, how to make the Start Menu ( left side ) look like this ? I dont care about those letters ( VIG YAAN and this blue wheel, or whatever it is ) Smiley
Do i have to add an image, or something like this ?
Thank you.

 Edit the left side of the Programs List, More Programs and Open Box images for what you want.
