Anybody have any idea how to change the title text color on windows. The fact that it's always black makes it pretty useless on any dark colored theme... I would have thought they would have programmed this in. I thought wrong...

Windows 8 Pro with Media Center x64
Nope — not yet, anyway. By the time of the public release in October hackers and customization utility publishers may have figured it out. Presumably Stardock's WindowsBlinds will present a version for 8 that solves this problem.
The many features of Windows in version 8 that have been removed sometimes makes it seem as though Microsoft is deliberately sabotaging the Desktop in favor of Metro. Happily, for those who want them, the Start button is back (with nearly direct booting into the 'legacy' Desktop), as is Sidebar (64-bit version), Window border control, etc. In the end, even if Surface rules, we Desktop denizens will win. Be patient!

Will patch the following files and append .backup to the originals...
If you uninstall UXThemePatcher it is supposed to replace the original files back.
Then try to copy the files from the Visual Style in the first link (I used Theme Without Thin White Inline Frame)
And overwrite the files.
If you have to take Ownership of the Themes folder, that is fine and then give Full Admin Rights to it and child objects.
DO NOT TAKE OWNERSHIP OF THE SYSTEM32 FOLDER as a whole, or even your C: drive.
ONLY the Themes folder.
You have been warned.
You may have to reboot a couple of times, Also, when you change themes the first time, Windows may freak out, but just reboot and it should be OK.
Otherwise, you may have to do a restore and try again.
