with light gray meter. I have difficulty reading it. I can only see the
battery power percentage when I move the mouse over it to show the number.
How can I change the battery power meter color scheme?
Or, where can I load another power meter program. My X61 runs in Vista Home
I remember when I had the ThinkPad R31, IBM support gave me the link to
download the power meter program, when mine disappeared. But that was in XP.
Re: How to change the battery power meter color darker or load new meter?
Try adjusting the transparency to a lower level. This will darken the
status bar. Frankly, turn off transparency altogether and make Vista run
a bit more like XP. Google: turn off vista transparency.
I do not believe you can change the system icon for the power meter.
You might be bound by the startup program installed that overrides the
Vista icon that is a dark background.
To turn off transparency altogether, right-click the desktop, select
Personalize, select Theme and toggle Vista Basic.
