    Colors Completely Baffling

    Now I am confused. I was/am having issue with my monitor. If I set my colors for [menu] selected items to me bright white text on blue background, it looks fine in the Customization screen. But then, in any screen that is "explorer-connected" -- like explorer.exe itself -- the elected menu items show as black type on blue.

    I thought it was my monitor - a Samsung 226BW.

    But, I spent yesterday setting up my daughter's Dell Laptop N5010, from bare metal using Windows 7 64-bit, and it now has the same issue.

    So, same software, totally different hardware, same result.

    What could be causing this? The top pic is how it is supposed to be, and the bottom is how it looks in explorer.exe.

    Regards,

    There's a separate Menu item, instead of Selected Items, to set those colors.

    Blue? It's all red here.

    Bruce, I believe the the Menu choice is for coloring non-selected menus across the top of the window. If I set that item to, say white, the the word "Normal" will turn white -- as will all the *non-selected* menu items.

    It is the Selected item -- the one that is being pointed at, that is in question here.
