    Pink border around apps


    The border around my apps is pink. Is there a way I can change the color?

    Hello Frank,

    That sounds like the color you have set for the "accent" color. Check using Option One in the tutorial below to change your accent color may help.

    Thanks, Shawn I'll check out that tutorial later on today. But, I have to answer Toni's question first when he asked if I have anything against pink. Tony, I'll answer it with a true story which I'm sure you will understand. Last year our granddaughter got married so my wife said to me that I should get some new clothes for the wedding. So she and I went to J.C. Penny store to look for some clothes. First we picked out a pair of black pants--nice plain black. My wife said, "Now why don't we look for a nice tie and shirt for you?" So I agreed. Well she spotted a shirt for me and said, "Here's a real nice one." I said, "No way--it's pink and I don't want to wear a pink shirt that's more of a women's color not for men." My wife said, "It's not pink, it's mauve." I said, "It sure looks pink to me and way too loud I'd rather get something a little less loud." Well, Tony, I'll tell you what finally made me buy it. That pretty sales girl was smart. She said to me, "You'll look real good in it." So I bought it. Now Tony I still have that "pink" shirt which I do wear. But do you now understand what I don't want to see a pink border around my apps?????
    You men understand that, don't you?

    Good story, Frank! I sure do understand. Sometimes we have to go the extra mile to please the ladies. "Yes, Dear" goes a long way. Happy wife = Happy life!

    I knew you would understand. But, you remember that I mentioned that the nice looking sales lady told me that I would look nice wearing it? Well--the more I think about it, I'm wondering if she was just trying to make a sale.

    Well, We can pretty much say it was two against one at that point, yes? All in all, wise man not to say no!

    So, what color border do you have now? Blue?

Well, for starters you posted this in the off-topic forum, cross-linked, hijacked three threads, and have yet to post a thread in the General support forum with a descriptive title. And while you're at it, explain a little bit better what i'm looking at. Is that your background or a video?
