    When I want to change a color, is first find out what color I will be changing. Eyedropper is a great tool for Windows users.

    Hover that eyedropper over the color, and remember the hex value. Keep in mind that if the color is shown in pairs, it may be shorthand (I.E. #ee0033 = e03)

    Now edit the vanilla.css, do a find and replace, and you are done.

I do not use windows but i do use xover office for linux. Thanks again!
