Hello. I just recently upgraded my Mac OS X Snow Leopard to OS X Mountain Lion. One thing I found out not liking about it was the Quick Look background color. How do I change the white to a more darker color, like black or dark grey in Snow Leopard?


I searched it on Google and I found some answers... but I don't know. This is what one of them said, "It's really pretty straightforward. Dig in the Core Services folder in System/Library for wherever QuickLook UI stuff is kept, copy those files, and then paste them back into the same place in Lion, replacing the old ones. Then reboot to see the changes. 'Course you'll want to make a backup of the Lion files when this inevitably goes horribly awry." ( uick-view-features)


But the thing is, I don't know where to get the Snow Leopard files since I upgraded...


Thanks for the help!

MacBook, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
