Asked questions on this answer:

I only ever use Details view--but I like the colour scheme ( in Windows) of "Fiesta" and that fills most of the top part of each window--hardly use the tree view--prefer a "drive list". Perhaps I really need to change the background colour of the active pane? That way I wouldn't miss whjich pane is the active one--or alternatively, change the colour of the background of the NON-active windows?? Whichever is easiest. - see attached screenshot which may explain my problem in spotting the active pane..

Thanks for your interest.
