You may want to know how to change the color of the Start Center's menu bar, to change from blue to red, for example.

Below is a reference to a document on how to change the Tivoli09 skin. 
Modifying the Navigation Bar with Skin09 enabled 
If you don't have the Tivoli09 skin enabled, please follow the below steps: 
You will need to navigate to: 
Within this directory, the bg_navbar.jpg is the Navigation Bar image and the bg_navbar_applink.jpg is the Navigation Bar application link image. 
Ensure you edit the .jpg file. 
Create a backup of bg_navbar.jpg and bg_navbar_applink.jpg . 
Open the images in an image editor and add text or a picture to the original. (Ensuring that you have a backup copy). 
After editing and saving, you will need to backup/delete your Maximo EAR
- delete the cache 
- rebuild and redeploy your Maximo EAR. After starting the application console/service 
- delete the browser cache, then log into Maximo to ensure that the changes have taken affect. 


Good Luck...
