I have windows 7 and do not care for the way it looks. \r\nMy old xp would let me change all the white to a custom color. W7 will not let everything change. I am visually in paired and see things brighter...


Ok - this can be done - step by step...
1. Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization\Window Color and Appearance
2. At bottom of that screen: Advanced Appearance Settings.
3. Top selection drop down - find Application Background.
4. Change that to a more agreeable color.
5. Save changes.
6. Enjoy a PC that you can look out without being blinded by the bright whites.
Cheers.
PS - Tested on my Windows 7 Home Premium.

Hi, I can help you with this problem. I ran into the same one a while back. You need the most current and correct drivers for your video card. Can you tell me what kind of video card you have? Brand and model number.
