    Windows Vista Premium Highlights

    Is there a way to change the color of the highlights, when I go into my
    directories and click on a directory or a file the highlight color is a soft
    blue or coral color and I am having a problem seeing this color, can I
    change it so it's darker or use another color.

    Right-click on desktop, choose "Personalize". In the R/H pane click on
    "Window Color and Appearance". In the dialog box that pops up click on
    "Advanced". Click on the drop-down box headed "Item" and select "Selected
    Items" then you can change the color.

    The two toned 'hover' is part of the Aero theme, but the select color can be
    changed . You can change your theme choice to 'Windows Classic" and the
    hover color will change with the select color. To change the 'select' color
    you open Control Panel, Personalizations, "Window Color and Appearance",
    click 'open classic appearance properties...', "Advanced" button, set the
    "Item" dropbox to "Selected items" and change the color drop box.
