Remove the Yellow Focus from the Taskbar...?

Hey everyone, this is driving me crazy! How do you remove the stock Sprint Yellow focus from the taskbar? I know about the registry setting for the start menus and have done that, but I can't seem to find out about this one?

By the way, this is what I am talking about.....



TIA,

Yeahman , nice TP background, called lady TP. Sktool will allow you to change that yellowish and replace it with a color of your choosing, in your case I think it may be background related

Thanks, you guys - ancient wallpaper from Windows 95 days :-p.

There are a couple ways to change the Start Menu colors....You can either disable the large HTC menu by going to Start > Settings > System > TouchFlo and REMOVING the checkmark from "Enable large Start Menu" - this is my preferred method.....

OR....

If you dig the chunky Start Menu but not the Yellow color.....you can change it via the Registry.

First, go to the registry and navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\HTC\EnlargeMenu

Pick a color here: http://www.2createawebsite.com/build...colorgenerator

Copy the Hex code and place it for the following keys. Make sure you have HEXIDECIMAL selected!

"ManilaCustomHlDown"=dword: (hexadecimal)
"ManilaCustomHlUp"=dword: (hexadecimal)

I have n issue if the color starts with a 0, it comes out a little squirrely. But the other colors work!

Anyhow, hope this is handy.

An example is the HTC green...it is color 178227...

HBenz, thanks for the SKTools idea, but why should I buy the software if it is probably only a reg setting I need to change? Thank, though.

Works like a charm, is there a way to change the focus from the task manager?

Yeah, I am looking for that. I would prefer disabling it and having it like TF3D isn't running at all. I can't find ANYTHING yet.....Keep ya posted. I hope someone has the answer. The keys in the registry are running together for these old eyes.....

Re: Remove the Yellow Focus from the Taskbar...?

Actually guys if you want the exact color and are tired with playing with those codes use this website table.. instead of putting in hex or decimal codes leave it check for decimal and hten put in the "access" code from the last column... works PERFECTLY.. attached is purple/silver combo.. use a dif color access code for up/down...

http://cloford.com/resources/colours/namedcol.htm

Edit for task manager is..

HKCU\Software\HTC\TaskManager.... same other keys

Start Menu
HKLM\Software\HTC\EnlargeMenu

Also you can edit the background by changing the file Pattern_2_2.png in the windows folder...OR point to antoher file. Custome Texture is the key in those reg edits

You are awesome, eenieMINI! Trying now! BTW, the purple/silver color is very pretty.

Man, that is so odd how one is in HKCU and the other in HKLM. Logic would follow that both would be in one hive....

I like your start icon
