    Change the Text Color of in Finder
    Is it possible to change the color of the text in Finder. I have a backround I like but the black text does not work with it.


    thanks
    Nick

    There was a topic about this very subject not too long ago. Try searching before posting a question, sometimes you can find what you're looking for without having to wait for a reply. :mac:

    To answer your question, no, there's no way (without a lot of hacking) to change the font color in Finder. You can make the text stick out a little more by selecting all of the icons in that window and right (control) clicking the icons, which shows the contextual menu. From here you can place a color label behind the text making it easier to read on a dark background.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    No shapeshifter doesn't change the fonts. It's an awesome program none-the-less.

    Correction: I was thinking of TinkerTool to change fonts - he wanted the colors changed. TinkerTool wouldn't change fonts for the top bar but throughout the apps and selective text Oh well. That's a fun app too.
