For everyone struggling to get white text. You have to do what someone posted below:
--------------

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences]
"AppColorLightV12"="#FFFFFF"
"AppColorMediumV12"="#FFFFFF"
"AppColorDarkV12"="#FFFFFF"
"AppColorAux1"="#FFFFFF"
"AppColorAux2"="#FFFFFF"
"AppColorAux3"="#FFFFFF"
"AppColorAux4"="#FFFFFF"
"AppColorAux5"="#FFFFFF"
"AppColorAux6"="#FFFFFF"
"AppColorAux7"="#FFFFFF"
"AppColorAux8"="#FFFFFF"
"AppColorAux9"="#FFFFFF"
"AppColorAux10"="#FFFFFF"
"AppColorAux11"="#FFFFFF"
"AppColorAux12"="#FFFFFF"
"AppColorAux13"="#1A1A1A"
"AppColorAux14"="#FFFFFF"
"AppColorAux15"="#FFFFFF"

------------

what you do is make a new notepad text on your desktop. Open it, past that into it (don't copy the ----'s just the text inside them). save as a .reg file, double click it and apply.

Plus you also have to delete the default text color stuff in the registry, otherwise each time you restart or exit sleep mode it'll revert back. you can remove the default colors just do this:


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\DefaultColors] 
after every lock/sleep/hibernate/crash. 

Make a backup of that key, take ownership of it, and then delete that whole key (defualtcolors). 

Hope this helps you all!

If you can change the text colors through the registry, shouldn't you also be able to change the background color into black or dark grey instead of downloading this design?

I had those entries added to the registry already still getting black text on the track names and album names.

Are you using windows 10?

Windows 7 i believe doesn't have this problem
MaggieMoonwall's avatar
I am on 7 now however did you delete the default colors in the registry like i posted in the guide?
TheSerenader's avatar
Yes deleted default colours also. No change.

Do you have a Windows 10 machine to test on?

Hey all, So I have a problem. I just switched back to windows 7 from 10. Because 10 is a horrible piece of shit in my opinion. Anyways, when I went to install this, same theme I used before. I get an error when I launch it. It says something like "error launching version 12.0.7601.24252 when version 12.0.7601.17xxx was expected. Please reinstall windows media player." I'm not quite sure why this is happening. Why does windows 7 have a more up to date windows media player then windows 10? I have Windows Media Player 12.

Help?

How'd you get white text?
itsmidnightyo's avatar

MaggieMoonwall's avatar
The WMP white text, however I got it myself a while back.
TheSerenader's avatar

Did you tweak anything to get the white text on the title and artist names?

My text is dark in some parts: i.imgur.com/F5HmDHk.jpg

Are you on the latest version of Windows 10?

Thanks for any info

Could you get this to work on Windows 10?  WMP 12 there definitely needs a good dark theme.
