    Changing color inside properties box?


    I just returned from the Windows 10 world. I did a fresh 8.1 install and set my system up the same as I've always have, I use Classic Shell, but I have one problem. When I right click on a item in the task bar there's this hideous dark blue background and I cannot find a way to change it. Never had this problem before and it's probably something real simple I'm missing.
