    Controling colors


    Recently I had to change my windows 8.1 theme choice of "High contrast White" because in certain web pages some icons/buttons were missing (invisible) due to the extreme contrast. So, I chose to go to a solid background. I run two identical ASUS machines with the same settings, and changed both of them to solid gray background (desktop/theme). When I was done I was astounded to find the the Charms slide-out window on one machine matched the same gray background as the desktop while the 2nd machines charms slide-out window had a bright yellow background. Somewhere, a setting has been made to make the charms window match the desktop background on one machine but not the other, I have searched for 2 day to find this setting but no luck, Does anyone out there know how to control the color of the charms window? Thanks.......kd12

Why does MS insist on using overly bright pastel looking colors across all their OS's? Starting with XP on up to Win8 they use pastel bright colors that in my opinion are not pleasing to the eyes. It's like they let the grade school girls design the color scheme. Why can't they find a line...
