    Where?


    So, while perusing this wonderful forum, I came across the option to try a different GUI.
    Thought I'd try the blue one--big mistake; it's giving me a headache! The real problem is that I can't for the life of me find the damn button to change it back!
    Anyone got any ideas? I really, really would appreciate the help.

    Hi altone, welcome to Windows EightForums.
    What UI are you referring to. Could you post a link to that 'Option' you tried?

    Hello Atone, an welcome to Eight Forums.

    I'm assuming you mean a different skin for the site. If so, then you should be able to change it at the bottom right corner of the site.

    If you selected one of the "Metro..." skins, then click on Members on the left, and click on Switch to Standard Style to go back to default.

    Hey Brink, thanks for the quick response. I did indeed mean "a different skin", sorry about that. Anyway, I am unable to follow your directions because there is nothing that says Members on the left. I do have a forum taskbar/launcher on the left that you can click on for tutorials and activity stream etc., but that's all I can see. What next?

    How about an option to change the skin at the very bottom right corner of the site like below?

    Hey Brink, what you're showing me here is how I changed the skin; and that's the problem. I can't find that button,anywhere. It's not at the bottom of any of the answer or thread pages. I am stumped! Anymore ideas?

    I show that your User CP settings are set to use the default skin, so you should be able to also log out and log in to the site to go back to the default skin since changing the skin at the bottom is only a temporary setting for your current session.

    I logged off last night, and then logged in again this afternoon. I'm still having the exact same problem.

    Log out, delete your cookies, and log in to see if that does it if it's a cookie issue.

    If it doesn't help, the go to your General Settings in your User CP, select the forum skin you want at the bottom, and click on the Save changes button to apply.
