    Hey Jerry,

    I hope you don't mind another quick question (so nice to learn from pros like yourself).

    There is a native theme in Win 8.1 (called "High Contrast White") the highlights that that theme uses are perfect for my needs (it makes a sort of a thin rectangular outline of the area below the mouse cursor)... Pity that the rest of that theme is horrific (otherwise I would use it as my theme).

    I was wondering if I could (by myself, without bothering you any further) port only the section of the highlight to another Windows default theme (so without having to use a custom theme).

    Would that be very complex?

    Thanks

    There is not a way to port a High Contrast theme in to a aero theme sorry.

    Is this the thin black rectangular?

    Yes, that's exactly the one.

    I wish I could have the default Windows theme but with that style of highlight (just the thin black rectangular outline whenever the mouse cursor hovers files/folders).
