    Where are background color settings?

    I give up. Where do I go to change my foreground (?) color, not the desktop. I could find it in XP. My pages are a glaring white color, and I want to change them to a blue color. I want to change how my menus look, etc.

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization\Window Color and Appearance

    click advanced appearance settings

    EDIT

    I just tried to do it the only way I know... and unless you use a classic theme, it doesn't work as expected...

    I’d hate to tell you how long I searched for that. Now, I’m going to try to make a shortcut to it and put it on my desktop.

    I downloaded some Windows files and they changed a lot of my settings.

    Now, what is the classic theme, and where is that?

    Select Windows Classic

    I would suggest making the changes you prefer, then saving the color scheme and/or the theme as a whole. then if you lose your settings again somehow, you can always reclaim them by selecting the theme/color scheme again.

    Shortcut to those settings, right click on desktop and choose personalize.
