What is the meaning for these registry color titles ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I'm looking to learn what these titles are and linked to

    is there a guide that lets me know what each line is for in Windows ?

    here is an example:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors]
    "ActiveBorder"="180 180 180"
    "ActiveTitle"="153 180 209"
    "AppWorkspace"="171 171 171"
    "ButtonAlternateFace"="0 0 0"
    "ButtonDkShadow"="105 105 105"
    "ButtonFace"="240 240 240"
    "ButtonHilight"="255 255 255"
    "ButtonLight"="227 227 227"
    "ButtonShadow"="160 160 160"
    "ButtonText"="0 0 0"
    "GradientActiveTitle"="185 209 234"
    "GradientInactiveTitle"="215 228 242"
    "GrayText"="109 109 109"
    "Hilight"="51 153 255"
    "HilightText"="255 255 255"
    "HotTrackingColor"="0 102 204"
    "InactiveBorder"="244 247 252"
    "InactiveTitle"="191 205 219"
    "InfoText"="0 0 0"
    "InfoWindow"="255 255 225"
    "Menu"="240 240 240"
    "MenuBar"="240 240 240"
    "MenuHilight"="51 153 255"
    "MenuText"="0 0 0"
    "Scrollbar"="200 200 200"
    "TitleText"="0 0 0"
    "Window"="255 255 255"
    "WindowFrame"="100 100 100"
    "WindowText"="0 0 0"
    "Background"="0 99 177"
    "InactiveTitleText"="0 0 0"
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\Colors]

  • Since Yesuar didn't bother to respond -- thank you for the link!  I've been referencing https://www.wintools.info/index.php/classic-color-panel-buttonlight but it doesn't cover everything, and not nearly as well as the site you provided.
