    Hi,

    I'm trying to change the color scheme of Windows Explorer in Vista
    Ultimate and cannot find a way to do that. This color scheme seems to
    be just another thing Microsoft designers think they know better than
    users. Does someone know some tricky way to get rid of annoying colors
    that Microsoft chose for me?

    Thanks.

    I'm sorry to hear that. Microsoft chose some really nice colors for my
    version of Vista. ;-)

    Yeah, yeah, yeah..... "You can choose any color of your car until that
    color is black". LMAO

    The complete lack of respect to the user is the firm style of
    production from Microsoft.

    I have found a solution though: ignoring Windows Explorer and
    installing a more user friendly file manager.

    The lack of color difference between a selected and an unselected file
    is not a bug, it is by design.

    Who did say anything about the color difference between selected and
    unselected files? I said that I don't like the black-n-white color
    scheme of Windows Explorer and wanted to change this scheme. Total
    Commander file manager became the solution of this problem.
