    I tried that first, it did not change it, the web was just an example, it is all over windows, when you have to click to another section

    What about changing the Theme via Personalize from right click on Desktop?

    Could it be a 3rd party color tuner software?

    Maybe it's a glitch that a cold shutdown might fix. *crosses fingers*

    I hope it's not a Registry issue but you could open your HKCU\ControlPanel\Colors and ...Desktop\Colors and see if 'GradientActiveTitle' and 'GradientInactiveTile' jives with the clients.
    (I'm pretty sure those are the ones)

    this was an open box desktop she purchased at bestbuy, i am assuming someone messed up the settings somewhere but no one noticed this and sold it to her anyway.
