Unfortunately, you can not change the titlebar color but you have a bunch of colors in the pack.

Hi MareM can you please respond?
Is this still being updated? Microsoft updates Windows 7 and still screws up MareM theme hahahaha.
Microsoft always updating the new file in a continue effort to make it ugly for us. Haha. I am sure MAREM File is more secure than Microsoft :)

Hello Mare-M : 
I have been using your Window 8/8.1 theme on Windows 7 since it was release and I love it. I cant use your Windows 10 theme for Windows 7 because Internet Explorer looks funky because of the large back button. I have an humble request...in your Windows 8/8.1 theme for Windows 7 , you have a msstyle for "light gray (color 1 theme)" and another one for "very dark black (black theme)". Is it possible to get one for the black color used in Window 10 taskbar.  This would be a huge favor for an old fan of your contributions.

Mare!<3 Thanks for this release. I love it maybe a little too much. I had no issues with using the theme until i got to changing the logon screen. I followed the instructions to the best of my understanding and I have crashed my computer and had to fully restore losing everything 3 times (ik why did i do it more than once, Im an idiot) When I take ownership of the authui.dll file and i change the name i got a message saying that i needed permission to do so (my user is the only one on my pc and is administrator.) so i figured i just edit the file permissions and give my user full control, this allowed me to change the name. Once i did that i attempted to put your authui.dll file into my system32 and sysWOW64 folders as the tut said and though the prompt would pop up and go away as if it worked. I never seen the file go into the folder. It was never in there. I restarted my pc which prompted my first full restore as i simply had an unexplainable black screen on boot up and repairing to the restore point i made didnt work. I literally left it sit "restoring files..." for 4 hours once. So new install of windows7 and i tried it again. This time when i didnt see the file go into the folder i attempted to change the authui_old.dll (my old authui file) name back "authui.dll" it would prompt me to allow it to change but then go right back to being "authui_old.dll" I didnt understand this and tried restarting which led me to once again full reinstalling windows7 and losing everything. My third try was much similar to my second. I love this theme but for some reason my hard headed ass cant seem to give up on getting the full experience. If you or anyone could help me with the changing of the logon screen to show me where i went wrong i would GREATLY appreciate it.  My skype is   iCantDoxYou  if your willing to help. I would love to have this theme installed and working.

First of all don't restart pc before you test logon with ctrl+alt+delete. You probably copied dll files to wrong folder. Just read very carefully instructions again.

Hello Mare-m,

I was really happy to find your modified basic theme. I'm running my windows in a virtualbox with no compositing and I wanted mod the basic black Win8.1 black theme to another color. Could you tell me which resource I would need to mod for the titlebar and the explorer bar?
