Registry Editing Tips

Editing Inaccessible Appearance Items

You can change the appearance of Windows in your Control Panel, Display applet or right-click your desktop and select Properties. But there are still some things you just can't change. For example, you might find it tempting to change your disabled (grayed out), highlighted or shadowed object. Never mind that, just open your registry editor and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Control Panel\Colors. On the right pane are the display options in RGB triplets. Search for keys with highlight or shadow descriptions.
