Is there any way to change the color of the slider that appears on screen when changing volume or brightness? Right now it's completely grey throughout:

I would have thought that changing the window background color would do it, but nope.
Neither can I find a setting in the Metro PC Settings side of the control panel.

I'm sure I have seen Windows 8 PCs where the slider has a different color on one side of the bar...


Running Windows 8.1 64-bit, fully updated.
Any help appreciated!

You mean the "Colour and Appearance" options? Yeah I tried that, but it only changes window borders and taskbar colours. The slider remains the same.

Really mine is white background black button and the slide (where yours is grey) is crimson. You mean the volume and brightness buttons when one swipes down on the left and not in the task bar, correct?
