****EDIT: I found solution. Went to 'Control Panel > Personalization > selected 'Window Color' and tweaked 3D option. Viola! Disregard this thread. Felix****


I have a Dell laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium. I've used the Aero and the Windows 7 Basic themes for a while now but over time I prefer using the old Windows XP/Vista themes instead of Aero and the Windows 7 Basic theme. I've successfully changed EVERYTHING about Windows 7 to resemble XPs look and feel. Question: How do you change the color of the 'taskbar' in Windows 7 'classic' theme? For instance, after going to 'Control Panel > Personalization > select 'Window Color', how do you specifically "change the color of the taskbar ONLY". Or is there another route under Windows 7 Classic Theme to change the taskbar color? Thanks in advance for your response(s)!
