changing font colours in xp start menu
Hi. My first post so please bear with me.
I don't use windowblinds so maybe this is not the right place for me to be asking questions but I thought there might be some knowledgeable people here.
I tried out windowblinds and it just isn't for me. I would just rather create my own styles by modifying the Luna and other default msstyles.
I use Resource Hacker and Replacer to create custom .msstyle files and xp themes. I'm not an expert and I just started this activity a couple of weeks ago. I'm having pretty good results but there are some things I'm having trouble figuring out.
I need to know what system file I need to edit to change the font colours in the xp start menu. Changing the font colour in desktop properties, appearance, advanced, menu doesn't change the start menu. I also want to change or get rid of the gray hover colour.
Here's a screen-shot so you can see what I mean;
It would also be nice to be able to change the window colours independently. If you use the desktop properties option it changes all the windows to the same colour. I'd like to be able have different colours in different windows.
There are so many system files that contain bitmaps and string tables, which control the appearance of xp, that it's really hard to figure out which is which. A dictionary of xp system files with line by line explanations would be fantastic! Too bad it doesn't exist.
Anyway, if anyone has any information that would help me find the files I need to edit, I'd be grateful.
