I think this is a Windows 7 theme sort of question.
In Outlook, in the Inbox, when I select a folder, the background is blue. Then when I select a message, the background is blue and the folder is barely grey/shaded. Then when I click inside the message, the message background turns barely grey/shaded.
Similarly, in Contacts, in detailed cards, the name of the contact is barely grey/shaded.
I want the barely grey/shaded portion to be darker.
I have right clicked on the desktop and proceeded to "Personalize" I then click on "Windows color". Then I click on "Advanced appearance settings". Here I can change all sorts of things. But not what I described above.
I suspect that answer may be to try different themes until I find one that does what I need.
Thanks in advance!
