    Clean Complete Guide to Theme Building

    This is a guide to make your own theme, I will be adding to it over a period of time

    Note :- In many of the locations for textcolor : color you will see a font property, click on the font name to change the font and text size etc.

    For the top (Command Module)

    1-Explorer & Shell > Explorer > CommandModule > <1> - edit the image here
    2-Explorer & Shell > Explorer > CommandModule > <3> > <1> - Textcolor : Color
    2-Explorer & Shell > Explorer > CommandModule > <4 > > <1> -Textcolor : Color
    2-Explorer & Shell > Explorer > CommandModule > < 5> > <1> - Textcolor : Color
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    3-Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Items View > Items View > FillColor (main window)
    4-Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Proper Tree > <2> - fillcolorhint : color (Left panel)

    also the location to change the text in these area,s is -
    5- Fonts , colors & System Metrics > Fonts & System Metrics > Windowtext:color

    This text changes in both areas when selected, the locations for selected are here-

    ItemsView(Main Window)-Explorer & Shell > Explorer > ItemsView > ItemsView > TextColor : Color
    TreeView (Left Panel)-Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Treeview > Treeitem > hot , selected etc > Textcolor : Color

    Lists, menu,s & tabs > menu > popupbackground
    Lists, menu,s & tabs > menu > popupborders
