As you can tell, I'm new to Win 7 and am trying to understand some of its workings.  I'm a bit confused about Microsoft Outlook.  When I select a document in Word for example, the entire line (name/date/type) is highlighted in a very faint blue which is quite acceptable however, when I select an item in Outlook, it is highlighted in a very dark blue (almost to the point it's hard to read).

Is there a way to make it fainter similar to Word?  I don't want to screw things up by messing with the control panels because everything else is perfect.  Is this something that can be done within Outlook?

To some extent, this depends upon how comfortable you are with making changes in relation to your discomfort with the current color scheme.  Others have expressed similar preferences in related discussions on prominent Windows 7 forums, but it typically requires changing some overall settings and registry keys:
