Explorer Drive Gauge Image question

Tuesday, January 19, 2021 by GAIAStevef | Discussion: WindowBlinds

Hey  Guys!

 I've got what's hopefully a simple question.

I've just started working with SkinStudio, and can't seem to get anywhere figuring it out.

I have a purchased skin that I want to edit one portion of for personal use.  In the main Windows Explorer window, (the drives listing), what is the name for the "space used" bar image?  (the section in blue below)

I'm wanting to edit that bar's color if possible to match the orange used in the rest of the Polaris skin.

Surely this must be possible.


Edit:   I've tried adjusting the color of the "progress bar" blue indicator and swapping it's graphic for one of the other colors just to see if it made any difference, but no luck.

Does SkinStudio itself work correctly in Windows 10 20H2?

To change progressbar. Refer to screenshot below. Provide your own graphics for the "Block" part. If you don't supply graphics on the colors block items (red square) WB will hue shift the "Block" graphics for those 3 Progress bar states.

Thank You!!     That worked.

I swear I had tried that previously, but I either had not saved the changes, or had poked at something else afterwards that broke things and I reverted to the original version.
