app color has changed

December 29, 2017 at 13:21:46
Specs: Windows 10, 12 gigs
Win 10 Pro, no other recent adds or changes. Everything is salmon color. Well, not everything. The windows like e-mail and browsers etc all have salmon color to them around the edges. The frames. Have tried various options in Control panel.. Everything else seems fine.

PC or Laptop?

If it's a PC try another monitor (or someone else's on your PC). If it is a laptop try an external USB monitor on it. The idea is to prove whether it is a computer or monitor issue. If it's the computer then a hardware issue is likely but there are other possibilities. Let us know how you get on and we can take it from there.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If you provided a clearer description of *what* changed color,
we would know for sure whether the problem is with the video
or with the software. In the thread title you say the "app color
has changed", which suggests that only some specific app is
affected. In the post you say "Everything is salmon color",
which indicates a problem with the video. Then you say
"Well, not everything", and suggest that it is only the color of
the window frames that has changed, which means a setting
in Windows was changed.

Try again.

Yes, I now wonder if you mean title bars and so forth. Have you changed something? When you go to the Start button (bottom left of screen) is the background there salmon color?

If so go to Start button (bottom left) > Settings cog > Personalisation > Colors.

There you can change individual color settings to whatever you like.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Sorry my post is confusing.In other versions of Windows you had the option of changing the color scheme of the boxes and menus. You could select a color from a Windows palette and then all the boxes frames would change colors. The different programs of course would display as normal as they do on this computer. But the frames around like Windows Explorer and things would be whatever color you chose. Now it seems to be pink. I'll try changing the color scheme in one more place then I'll forget it. It's not unpleasant,just annoying.
Thanks for everyone's help so far.

As Derek said, go to

Start button (bottom left) > Settings cog > Personalisation > Colors

If your version and mine work the same, there is a preview of your
desktop; a switch to allow or not allow Windows to automatically
select frame and background colors from your current wallpaper
image; a palette of color samples from which you can manually
select a color; a switch to select whether to use this color on the
Start menu, taskbar, action center, and title bars; a switch to select
whether to make those things semi-transparent; and finally a link
to high-contrast settings.

If adjusting these doesn't fix it, please let us know. It would be
surprising if it doesn't.

Ooops! Posted too late! Problem already solved!

Thanks for the effort though, Jeff. I did what you suggested by accident and it worked.
Good advice.
