    It can by editing the .msstyles with a resource hacker of some kind.

    Go to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Aero folder and zip up a copy of the aero.msstyles and post it here and I can give you the image numbers. I have 8.1 and need your 8 to check.

    I would make a new custom theme so you do not corrupt the default aero.msstyles, look at Post #38 Here it will show you how, it showing Windows 7 but it's the same for 8.

    You will need to install UxStyle so you can use custom themes.
    To install UxStyle you need to turn off the UAC reboot, install UxStyle reboot, turn on UAC reboot.

    No. I love their customization stuff. Not expensive. Very easy to use. Lots of options and themes.
    Just my preference and an option that is easy. It works great in Windows 8 / 8.1
    I like Winstep too. I don't care anymore to take the time to edit the registry to save a few bucks.

    The images you need to edit are:
    #656

    There is a move overlay that moves across the image it is #664.

    Have a look at this post how can i change this menu color Solved - Windows 7 Help Forums it will give you the basics on how to edit using Restorator and gimp.
