    Hello brtnygrn. Welcome to the forums.

    Changing the color of any menu in your device would require root access and a custom ROM which has been developed that way. I've seen a few with transparent menus, as well.

    It is not a configuration setting in a stock Android device, with the exception of opacity in the keyboard, etc.

    If you mean the menu in a particular application (which I doubt), that would be the whim of the app developer, if he or she has the skills to do that.

    Having said all that, why don't you go into Market and do a search on, "menu color change," or some such thing. You never know, there could well be an app for that. ;)

    I think he means the color of the App drawer, which actually is possible though it requires using a different launcher such as Go or LauncherPro. OP if you are on a Sense, Motoblur, or Touchwiz interface, you cannot do it while retaining the look that you have now, but if you replace those interfaces with a custom launcher from the market (I recommend Go, it is extremely snappy) then yes, you will have the option of changing the color

    Aha.. good eyeball, zerocool.

    And launchers do address that. I took the OP to mean the menus ("application menu").
