Skin Studio Pro - where do I find so I can change

Monday, December 12, 2011 by LizMarr | Discussion: Skinning

List has three things so far -

  1. Tool tip colors. The skin I am using has light tan on beige tool tip bubble text for some items. Not good for a blind person. I can only see it if I mouse over it.
  2. The program part of the start menu. You know, the left side of the panel you get when you click "All Programs" on the start menu. Everything else has wonderful colors and font sizes. I can't for the life of me find the place to change that font, size, background, whatever and I've been through the Skin Studio so many times I swear I've memorized it (or almost anyway)
  3. The left panel of explorer. Not the right-hand side where all the files are listed, but the left hand side where just the folders are listed (and Favorite and Library and user folders) I so much would like a background here, maybe a font tweak or two.

In case you can't tell by my questions, this is Windows 7 x64. When I get this stuff learned I hope I can beautify Windows 8 some before the developers copy license runs out. It sure is ugly and the interface for finding your programs, etc. is really ridiculous. A step backward if you ask me.

Sorry again to bother but I really, really  have tried to find these things.

1. tooltip colors is a graphic located on "edit treeview +/- and tool tip controls".

2. "edit start menu" go to "all programs background" then click on the "extra settings" tab. changing the color of the background is the last option. not sure where, if you can, change the font setting for that.

3. you can change the color but I don't believe that you can substitue a graphic for the color.
