    Has any one found a way to turn off the ugly looking deselected windows color or even change the color?

    Is a themer question, and i reply with a non sure yes:
    There is a difference with windows 7 themes, but anyway you need:
    Windows Style Builder
    Good skills at Photoshop and Photoshop of course!
    Time to learn how a theme is builded...

    Anyway if you are going to replace all images in frames in Windows section(TOp, bottom, left and right for inactive window) you get the point!

    As said,:
    1: there is no Theme Patcher for windows 8, so you can modify just original themes
    2: There is a big difference in themes between 7 and 8, so all experience gathered til now in 7, may be different in 8, so it is just matter of time and tryings
    3: I dunno know if Style Builder can be used in 8 and properly test the new cooked theme....

    Good luck:D:D

    I don't have interest in that crap of inconsistent solid colors OS(Aero + solid colors not related???:confused::confused:), neither for now part of great themers....
