    Location for Windows system classes?

    Can anyone tell me where Win32 system classes are stored in the file system? In particular menu class "#32768". Thank you!

    I'd like to know if it's possible to change the coloring of standard menus by changing the class manually; for those apps that either old or do not work with windows dark theme.

    You could get some ideas together with a sample code here: Transparent Menu

    What do you mean stored in the file system?
    Most are probably in user32.dll.
    If you want to create menu's that look completely different, you probably better of starting from scratch on your own menu class instead of reusing the Win32 menu class.
