    How come everytime I see a screenshot of a window in either Tiger or Leopard, the maximize, minimize, and close window buttons are always red, yellow, and green..........but mine are always just GRAY, with a +, -, and x inside them?

    I am running Leopard....is there an option to change this?

    Thanks!

    under the appearance system preference, is your appearance color chosen as graphite?

    The top left Apple, the scroll bars, and the menu highlight stripe will be blue, the buttons will be colored, and that's pretty much it.

    [Edit: Of course it takes like 5 seconds to try it, so just see for yourself...]

    Thank you everyone...

    I really appreciate your responding to my question, everyone. I especially appreciated the screen shot. I did change from Graphite to Blue and indeed the buttons changed to red, yellow, and green. The vertical scroll bar changed to blue but otherwise I don't see much change. Perfect!

    Cheers!!
