    Taskbar. Right Click Menu has turned colors.

    Good morning everyone,

    This morning I turned on my computer and now my pop out menus for my task bar are a dark green with a picture of a thumb tack. I did not install any new hardware.

    The thumb tack is not functional.
    This happened on all my user accounts.
    Everything else in Windows is normal.

    The closest thing that I found to change that color is: I switch to High Contrast Theme and then click on Color. The Selected Text directly affects the color of the right click pop up on my task bar.
