    The BB_Line_Hightlights is nice but if you can, please turn the selected line to red (the blue selection and the black highlight are too similar).

    Thanks

    I sent you a new PM with a picture that should clarify everything.

    Your picture shows you want blue but you say red here which one?

    Hi Jerry,

    I have tested your "The BB_Line_Hightlights" (Highlights) theme only after I prepared and uploaded the picture with the screenshots, so if for you it is easier/quicker to just change the highlight to the red rectangular outline, do that.

    If for you it's less work to do the blue highlight (with the white contrasting font), do that.

    Bottom line, do whatever is easier/faster for you.

    Thanks again

    I was not able to get the white text that text is one color for all states (hot, selected etc.).

    I could not do this.

    Hey Jerry,

    I noticed a problem in the "Thin_RB_Line_Hightlights" theme.

    When I try to rename a file/folder, the name is masked by a blue solid stripe and the renaming operation becomes very difficult.

    The same happens in every line/menu/dialog/path that I select in any program on the same computer... This makes your nice theme quite hard to use (sorry).

    Hopefully the animated screenshot below properly illustrates what happens.

    Thanks

    That was my mistake when I was trying to get that white text for you ended up changing that highlighted text sorry here is a replacement .msstyles that you can replace in the C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Thin_RB_Line_Hightlights folder.

    You're welcome

    I use Ave's Windows7 Style Builder it is for Windows 7 but after it is purchased you can join their forum using your email and the key code they send you and then you can download a beta that works on Windows 8/8.1.
