Hello, I'd like to change the green color of all the progress bars to Blue (See image). I think I can do it in powershell but I can't find any info webwise on this procedure. I found something similar in the link below but not it's not what I want to do. I thought of using it & just type in the 'Blue' color instead of black but I don't want the Green background as I want it to stay the same. I sure hope somewone can please help & possibly give me something I can copy & paste in powershell. Thank You !  Blue Progress Bar

    That's not a PowerShell object (i.e., it wasn't produced using the cmdlet Write-Progress), it's a dialog box, or maybe a form. The progress bar in your example is a graphic object.

    Here's an example of creating a form with a progress bar: https://mcpmag.com/articles/2014/02/18/progress-bar-to-a-graphical-status-box.aspx

    And another example: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/5643412/powershell-progress-bar-in-windows-forms

    You'll find lots more examples of doing this by searching for "powershell create dialog box with a progress bar"
