    Does anyone know how to change the color of the bar? I find it hard to see my weight.

    Control panel, appearance and personalization, customize colors.

    Not sure if this will work with the xp-compatibility mode which you seem to be running.

    Actually just tried it myself, and it only seems to change some window borders.. what a lousy customization option.

    Update: Control Panel, Appearance and personalization, Change the theme, Windows Classic. An ugly workaround but it might work for you.

    This is the first version of windows I've used where I can't personalize my own theme.. I'm kind of ticked off, even if I never bothered to try personalizing it before.

    You sound so happy to have that windows 95 look. Glad it worked.

    Well, I am not happy that everything now has that look, but I will make that sacrifice so that I can see my weight total without having to tilt the screen back and forth to a crazy angle! :p

    Hi Patty,

    That sounds like an excellent question for the new UO Tech forums. ;)

    If you feel like re-posting it there, others may benefit from the answer in the future.

    Thanks Sweeney, much appreciated. Please feel free to drop by the UO Tech forum anytime. The link is under my sig pic.
