Could you also change Minimize, Maximize button color, please? And if you don't mind, tell how you did it?
Or better - how to fix the jumplist?
Thanks
I can change the button color, what color do you want?

I use a beta of Ave's Windows7 Style Builder for 8/8.1

If you want to fix the jumplists you need to buy Ave's Windows7 Style Builder and get the beta from their forum (you sign up with the email address and key you get) there is a fix their.

While, it's been 2 years since this post. I cannot THANK YOU enough, Bongo. I wanted a white title bar in W8.1 for the longest since Micro$oft took it upon themselves to change their OS. I don't care for their W8 UI design, but can tolerate it all the more.

As with previous similar themes, I have the white title bar, but other things were working irregularly for me, particular the taskbar menu for example, but with this theme, no problems so far.

Again, Thank you for this Theme.

Hi,

There´s a new version of Vista builder called "Windows Style Builder" in beta phase, which is very powerful and capable of doing what you have mentioned. I used to change Windows 8 appearance. It´s fantastic.

CU.

Doesn't work. Yes, you can change the title bar color, but the text color you can't. Waste of time.
The text color can be change with Windows Style Builder.

The text color can be change with Windows Style Builder.
Or opening up Notepad and pasting this in:

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors]

"TitleText"="0 0 0"
"InactiveTitleText"="0 0 0"
Now all one needs to do is,find the RGB values for the text color you want, Then save as WhatEver.reg and double click the icon.
:note:: The title text is only change for that one current theme
