Possible to change the color of the taskbar thumbnail (icon)?


Hi, the two images above illustrate my problem.

I would like to know if it is possible to give the selected (active) taskbar thumbnail a different colour (shade) to the rest of the thumbnails on the taskbar
. The examples in the two images shows how difficult it is to know which is the active application (it's all blueish-grey or it is all black).

This might sound trivial, but it is really off-putting
(and unnecessary annoyance) when you click the taskbar thumbnail of the app you want, only to find that you have just minimized the very app you wanted in the first place.

Please help.

i guess u want a different color for just the taskbar? else u can change the color in your theme menu.

I don't think this is possible. I want the selected taskbar icon to be a different shade/colour to the unselected icons on the taskbar. Thanks anyway.
