Selected Items Highlight Colour Changed!! Jeez!!

(A little monologue with tongue in cheek)

You know when you select a line of text etc. you get that nice (I call it) Photoshop blue highlight?
Well, I somehow managed to change mine to a very mundane grey .
No probs, I thought, I know where to go !
Ha!! Talk about making things convoluted .
Instead of a r-click on the desktop, another couple of clicks here n there and a colour change a.k.a WinXP (the easy way) .
What have M$ done?
They've buried the GUI, that's what they've done !
Who'd have thought, off the top of their head, to go "Aha! I need to r-click on the desktop, Personalise (Click heels 3 times...), click on Window Colour and (nearly there!) then click on the Advanced Appearance settings..." .
This is Windows 7, and this wasn't my idea! (it was his, HONEST!!).
