    Only problem is, the light gold, that shows up good in black, is a bit light, in the Navigation pane in File Explorer.

    Yep, gold on white just doesn't cut it.

    This is where theme patcher comes in handy. FE would then be a very nice Aero Black and not a nuclear white out, that it is.

    True, gold on white is a little too much lite

    Thanks, but I found a better, only slightly darker color for the Window text.
    go to
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors]

    and change this value, then sign out and back in:
    "WindowText"="244 164 96"

    It will then be a bit more readable in File Explorer

    Does this change apply only for the current Theme?

    Yup all color changes in the registry are only for the current applied theme and current user. It's about the only safe registry hack there is
