    Hello,

    I have set my preferences to show my windows with BLUE menu etc.

    System Preferences --> Appearance --> BLUE ("for the overall look of buttons, menus and windows") and yet my menu's buttons and windows are still in GRAY.

    I have tried adding another monitor, changing colour profile etc, nothing makes them look BLUE.

    Any ideas?:confused:

    The blue option changes the colour of scroll bars, window close/minimize/zoom buttons, selected menu items, and so forth. It doesn't actually turn everything blue.

    Try repairing permissions from Disk Utility.

    Is your screen working fine?

    Thank you Bluerevolution, and Jethryn,

    It seems I was expecting more items to turn blue than are supposed to.
    Indeed my scroll bar does turn blue and my buttons are red gold and green.

    I understand now.

    Thanks all.
