Change The Basic Program Background Colour

May 26, 2009

Any ideas on how to tweak the color of the menu background of Windows 7 applications?

To be specific - as I'm not sure of the correct name - I'm talking about the pale blue color which appears behind "File Edit View History " on Firefox (and other programs), below the title header. It is used as the unselected tab background too.

I don't like it!

I want this color to appear uniformly Grey, as in XP, and without the light slim horizontal embellishment cutting through the words.

.exe Program Files Opening With Microsoft Word By Default?

Jul 15, 2010

I recently ran into an issue where this installation on Windows 7 Pro 32-bit is trying to open up all my programs in Word, they all have the MS word icon as well, so for instance, when I click on Nero, it will try to open it up in word and we get an error because it is not a word file. This is on all Program .exe files. There are no options to change the file association in the default programs in control panel. I have only seen a few fixes for this which involve the registry, I have checked these, however, all registry keys are correct. System restore fails as well, have tried multiple restore points to no avail. We have also ran norton, and malwarebytes on the system is it runs clean.

Change Default Dvd Program

Dec 28, 2009

I wonder how I change the default program for dvd's. Now, when I double-click the dvd in "Computer", Windows Media Player is started. I have powerdvd installed. In file associations it shows that .vob is linked to powerdvd. Is there a way so that when I doubleklick the dvd I want to play powerdvd is started.

I don't want to delete windows media player (I haven't found out yet how you do it yet).

Cannot Change Default Program To Open FileType

Dec 27, 2011

I upgraded to windows 7 through a clean install. I just reinstalled itunes but when it prompts me to change itunes to the default program to use for audio files, I click yes and nothing happens. It prompts me every time I open itunes. I went to control panel -> programs -> default programs -> set default programs and itunes wasn't there. I then went to ->associate a file type or protocol with a program but when I tried to change the default program for .mp3 the following happened:

- I double click .mp3
- I click browse
- Secondary Drive -> Itunes -> Itunes.exe
- I arrive at the screen that popped up after I double clicked .mp3 and itunes isn't on the list.

I tried going to a random .mp3 file and changing its default program but the same thing happened. I googled what to do and I looked for a software that would change the default program for filetypes and I used both. They didn't work. I tried the following:

a. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
b. Navigate to
c. In the right side of the screen double click on "NoFileAssociate".
d. Change the value of "NoFileAssociate" from 1 to 0. If the value is not present, create a DWORD value and enter the valaue data as 0.
e. Exit Registry Editor and Restart the computer and check.

But I didn't seem to have the nofileassociate part in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionpoliciesExplorer

Unable To Change Default Program Access Settings

Sep 3, 2009

I'm desperately trying to change the sidebar gadget to open websites by default with Mozilla Firefox (in particular, the "Ask LEO" gadget).

Firefox is my default browser. If I double-click on a .url file saved on my system, it correctly opens Firefox, and so does clicking a link in MS Outlook. Again, Firefox is default, but that's not my problem.

Somewhere I found the advice to change the "Set program access and computer defaults" settings. So I tried, but every time I change something there, it doesn't keep the setting. I click on Custom => Default Web Browser => Mozilla Firefox, click OK, get some flashing on desktop, but next time I get there it's set back to "Use current browser" again.

Anyone got the same problem? I'm using the 7100 (x86) build, but a friend of mine tried the same on the final build (x64) and he got the same problem. It's reverting all the time. Re-installed Firefox, restarted, changed/tried/reset everything I can imagine.

Edit: It seems the problem is a Javascript-call "" in the "Ask LEO" gadget. Someone knows why this call opens IE and every other call doesn't? And is there a workaround?

Edit2: With a dirty hack I solved the problem. Edited the gadget and replaced "" by "System.Shell.execute". Still - I'd like to know why a) I can't change the default programs setting and b) why ignores my default browser configuration.

Change Default Path Of User Profile Personal Files And Program Installation

Jun 26, 2011

I have a computer with three partitions, the first with 100GB exclusively to Windows 7 (already installed), a partition for applications and another partition for personal files (photos, text, music, movies, etc.). I wonder how to configure the location of "My Documents", so that all users have only their personal files on drive of personal files. In Windows Explorer changed in each of the users the location of the Documents, Music, Video and Pictures.

- After changed the location of the folders above, there is still the same folders in C:users , and there are user settings that are there defined, eg Desktop, in C:Users. Is there any way to move all settings and folders to another drive?
- Is there any way to do this operation automatic? for future users I will have to repeat the same operation, how can I indicate that all future users will have their settings and documents specified in this specific drive?

I installed some applications and found that some applications did not demand that the location where it was set to be installed the application, having been installed in C:users and C:Program Files, intended that all applications (except for windows and Office) were installed in drive applications. How do I specify that this is the default drive for installation applications? Keeping the installations of Windows + Office in this drive. Applications installed by the administrator are available for all users or must be given access to other users ? How done? In the drive file, which should contain the users and shared files, meant that each user only gets access their documents and shared. Where and how can make this configuration?

How To Make Certain Applications Change Windows 7 Colours To Basic?

Jan 15, 2013

For the most part I like and use the the "Let Windows choose" visual appearance settings which enables the transparent effects etc. However when I played Civ IV for example, a notification popped up saying that the application was not compatible with certain visual effects and would put Windows into the basic colour scheme appearance mode - it'd still "look" like Windows 7 just without the transparency, which is great. I can of course manually do this and make it "best performance" but...heh, it's ugly! It reminds me of Windows 98. What I'd like to do is set a particular application, in this case it's Civ V to also set my Windows appearance to this basic colour scheme mode when I load the game, in the hope it'll improve performance somewhat.
