  • Hi peterinpeter,


    You can first try changing a theme to see if the issue can be resolved. To do so, right click on the Desktop, click Personalization, and then select the theme you would like to have.


    Also, you can change the Windows color by going to Personalization -> Windows Color -> Advanced appearance settings… -> pull down the Item and select the item you would like to change its color (such as Window) -> click OK.


    For more information, please refer to the following articles:
