    win8.1 Black out navigation panes and backgrounds

    New here b/c no other forums helped me.
    so, black out navigation pane in control panels not file explorers, but file transfer windows are black out too, and backgrounds of control panels are in danger too


    Please read the posts on the other forums before questioning me......

    thanks for your contribution caperjack, DISM found 87 errors and fixed it, and sfc found nothing.

    problem still exist, are there any other error checking tools for system corruptions?

    this might help, i played around with high contrast themes and custom colors, and the settings for "Button" seems to affect the black out navigation pane.
