Font colors and location help

Monday, October 14, 2019 by nofx1994 | Discussion: Skinning

I am trying to locate the address font color, header font color in explorer, and the actual font for the programs list in the start menu. I am trying to get all my fonts the way I want them before I continue. Thank you for any help

The startmenu text. Open SKS/edit startmenu and taskbar/edit start menu/left and righthandsides/item mouseover/text.  At the bottom you can change the text color and font. Make sure you click apply after any changes.


The Search text color is Black. So basically we live with it.


The other text color you are asking. I know but right now my mind is blank.

As far as I know the header color on Win10 is locked at black too.  This thread is a little old but as far as I know it hasn't changed, see replies 9-12:

I don't think he is using Windows 10, look at the trayarea. He is on Windows 7 no doubt.

You are correct LightStar. I did try 10 in the preview beta version but once it came out and figured out you needed another program to fix the start menu back to a great working version plus all the other bugs. I figured I will not update until forced by windows to do so. The misses enjoy 10 but I figure if it isn't broken why fix it kinda person.
