If you have the source code, you can make changes. Is that what you are asking?

It looks like it's using a custom Look and Feel. When you go to the main method, there should be a line saying something like UIManager.setLookAndFeel(......);

You should be able to use something similar.

Relax. No need to shout. We are trying to be helpful
Like Stephan mentioned, you need to toy around with the Look and Feel. More about it here http://download.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/uiswing/lookandfeel/plaf.html

PS. UIManager.getSystemLookAndFeelClassName will make your UI look similar to the UI of the OS on which it is running. This helps your end user, feel that your application is more "natural" or "native". This is a very important usability point to consider when designing UIs.
