    Hi

    I want to modify Visual Studio 2012 Dark theme for Winforms. The color
    of the form text (header text on the top) is gray which is hard to read
    sometimes. I want that one to be white colored. How can I achieve that?

    Thanks

    In addition the following articles are very useful when you need to edit the predefined themes:
    Let me know if you have additional questions.
