    Not a solution but what I see is the white part is a dialog box for typing in [becomes active] and the color of white on blue is normal when Selecting something for copying, deleting, etc. That bar does not appear on my File Explorer.

    Yea the blue is perfect!

    I guess it doesnt appear for you because you have a light time maybe? The thing I want to do is to change the background color from white to black

    Thanks for response!

    Try changing ButtonHilight and HilightText in [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors](then sign out & back in)

    Oh you mean, before you click the address bar. There is no key for that. That's one of them that needs to either be patched(sadly) or use an alternate shell, on top of File Explorer/Control Panel(like Blinds).

    I have windows style builder but the color propiertes in there for the address bar returns me an error when I try to modify the color.

    How I can modify a shell? There is a program or something? Thanks!

    I don't use it, but @Edwin does, maybe he'll show up when he has a moment, and tell you more about it.
