    need to change textbox background color (pic included)

    Hello my friends... I need to change the background color of the area on the start menu where you type to run a program. I bet this one is pretty simple but I can't seem to find it. Here is a pic:


    any and all help appreciated.

    You can't change that in the msstyles, it is normally covered with a image for the search bar but if it's removed you end up with a small black bar instead.

    Ok... well, can the textcolor be changed? Right now I think I have black on black. If I could make the foreground color something lighter, that would be just as good.

    thank you.

    oh.. I can't change the global window text color. It would mess everything else up. It would be nice if I could just change the text color of that one textbox.

    I do thank you for your help though. If you think of a way to change that text color, please let me know. Otherwise... I appreciate your input.
