I managed to hex edit the disk pie chart colors in shell32 by getting a clue from Panda's link here:

http://vistastylebuilder.com/forum/index.php?topic=1304.msg6986#msg6986

THIS IS ONLY FOR WINDOWS 7

Unfortunately things have changed since XP days. In 7 you have to read and enter the hex backwards as you can see in my code.

Worse is that I haven't been able to find unique locations for the colors of the Free and Used Space squares. The ones in the WinMatrix example don't work anymore.

Anyway here's how to change the colors:

Before               After    


[Pie chart]
Original
00 00 FF 00 FF 00 FF 00 00 00 80 00 80 00 80 00  

Replaced with
6E CE C2 00 FF CB 6E 00 B1 D0 4A 00 B1 D0 4A 00



[Free Space] Pink
Original
FF 00 FF  

Replaced with
6E CB FF


[Used Space] Blue
Original
00 00 FF  

Replaced with
C2 CE 6E


[Bevel] Purple
Original
80 00 80

Replaced with
4A D0 B1

Too bad it's only half done. Almost went blind looking for the colors of the squares Tongue

Found the unique hex sequence to change the Free and Open Space squares colors Cheesy

As with the pie chart the  hex code  for the colors has to be entered backwards:





[Original]
BA FF 00 FF 00 EB 05 BA 00 00 FF
 
[Replaced with]
BA FF CB 6E 00 EB 05 BA 6E CE C2

In 10 there's only 2 colors Blue (44 66 F0) and Pink (E9 4B DD):





The likely hex sequence for changing the colors is:

BA E9 4B DD 00 EB 05 BA 44 66 F0

But I'm not messing with shell32 to test it and DON"T RECOMMEND anyone else to do it either

because of the whole Digital Signature issue.

Only colors the squares Sad  I was afraid that would be so.

I'll take another look and see if I can find another sequence for the chart colors. Unless you find it first Smiley

I think the Win32 VisualStyles may be going to be making use of the User's accent colour soon, so this would explain the pie charts using a blue colour

I feel that may be optimistic, windows controls have been predominately blue for years already anyway.

But traditionally, the blue has been used for highlights, with the controls being grey in their default state.  And an early image from Win10 development shows changes in the Win32 UI
