Sorry, I missed that sentence and apparently misread you original post
as well as saying that you want a dark background color.

Wing 4 is based on GTK and thus won't adjust to the Windows 7 appearance
settings. You can set the text colors for Python and a few other file
types with the User Interface > Colors > Syntax Formatting preference.
To set the background color for everything outside the editor you would
need to either find a GTK theme that you like or adapt one of the ones
that come with Wing. They are located in bin\gtk-bin\share\themes in
your Wing installation and the 'gtkrc' file is where the theme is defined.
How this works will be completely different (and I hope easier to
manage) in Wing 5, which will be based on Qt instead.
