Sunday, September 30, 2012 by PapaBravo | Discussion: Skinning

Anyone know if it's possible to change the start menu search result color or use a graphic to customize it, using skinstudio.

if your talking about the search box located at the bottom left hand corner of the start menu?

the graphic for this is located in the section, Edit Vista/7 Explorer parts, search field background, listed under the "glassy areas".

In SKS: Backgrounds/Edit Explorer Background Bitmaps/Explorer Backgrounds. You need an image for the Active and Inactive Window. This will change that color and the color of the backgrounds of your windows at the same time. Just a tiny square bitmap of color is all you need.

No, a 32x32 pixel is though, by almost any standard of measurement.

Before you edited your comment, you didn't state if it was mm, cm, inches, feet, yards, whatever. At any rate, the joke has been lost, so carry on.
