On Windows, you cannot change the font color of TCombobox at all, this is not possible in Delphi either. Much of LCL painting is done by the widgetset and thus govererned by the theme services, and we must accept that this poses some restrictions in selecting colors.

If you use an Owner draw combo box then you can make it just about anything you want!

As wp pointed out, if you use theme support, the theme of OS is used. You can disable it via MainMenu -> Project Options -> Application -> disable "Use manifest resource (and enable themes)".
