Default track color

On this screen from the Reaper.fm 'screenshots' :

You can see that the tracks color changes the WHOLE TRACK color, while when you do it it Reaper, only the tracks names background color and waveforms change. WHY? I personally would really like the whole track panel to change color. How do I do this?

To change the whole track control panels and Mixer strips:
Preferences -> Appearance >> Tint track panel backgrounds

To change item backgrounds:
Preferences -> Appearance -> Media >> "Tint Backgrounds to custom track colors" and "Tint Backgrounds to custom item colors"

Play around with these settings (and those that are in the same section of the prefs) until you find a combination you like

What if those options aren't clickable? Reaper tells me that "color themes may override this preference". What are the color themes and where can I change that?

If you use a light color theme to start with you can tint them to almost any color you desire.
