'Selected Items' colour

  Graham ® 14:58 01 Jun 2004

In XP, Display Properties, Appearance, Advanced, I changed the colour (blue) of Selected Items. Now I'm trying to get it back to the original blue, but I can't find the right one. Any takers, please?

Colour 1 comes up as dark blue (4th down on left side) The only other blue is a light blue on my set up

When I click on mine as per your instructions it comes up as Color 1 which is Dark Blue.

Go back to advanced and click on the colour button. From the drop down menu choose "More" then set as follows.

HUE 139

SAT 240

LUM 72



BLUE 152

Click on OK and all will be back to normal until you have a play again! ;o)

Thanks, each. Tried your suggestions, but couldnt get it right. Kept coming up a dark blue which made the text hard to read. I was looking for a way to change the text colour under icons for the lady at the weekend.

However, problem solved! Under Properties, Themes, 'Windows XP (Modified)' was set. I changed to 'Windows XP', and back to normal.

Thanks again.
