    Change loading bar colour?


    Hey guys,

    I'm new here and I haven't much experience with Win8 - I worked with Win7.
    The question relates to the loading bar colour in Win8. Here you see a example what I mean:

    I would like to change it from green to blue for example. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    As far as I know, it's not possible yet. I'd like mine to be the same green/mauve tinge of my windows etc as well...

    The only way I know of doing that is through a UxTheme patcher. You'll need a theme/skin that has a blue loading bar and patch it over the old .dll files.

    I think Binging or googling or going on DeviantArt will find you some resources.
