Tab highlight color can't be changed, making for ugly themes
Posted: 11 Apr 2007 07:09
If you use a different theme in WindowsXP, XYplorer can look quite horrible since certain patches (the toolbar, tab foreground, and a border around the statusbar) don't follow the system theme colours.
EDIT: Changed title since the tab highlight is the only non-editable thing.

Simply close and restart the app. Only the tab headers colors don't follow automatically since you can configure them yourself. Config | Colors: right-click the labels to set the current system colors.

Woops, sorry. Is there any way to change the colour of the current tab highlight?

you mean the orange highlight over the current tab? I remember you asking this sometime back. Personally, orange is one of my favs, so no complains.

Are you talking about the background of the current tab? If so, just go into Configuration (F9), then click the "Colors" tab, and change the color of "Background" in the "Tab Headers" section on the right side.
Does this do what you want?

Yeah, that. Good memory. It's not terrible usually but with different themes it can be awful.
