Windows 7: How to change how highlighted icons look

How to change how highlighted icons look


I was messing around with the high contrast themes, but when I changed back to the default windows 7 theme, it changed how the icons look when they're highlighted.

Before they used to look like the icon on the right, but now they look like the icon on the left. How do I change it back?

I have everything enabled in System Properties -> Advanced -> Performance -> Settings -> Visual Effects

Welcome to Seven Forums Borab. Likely the easiest way would be to run the System File Checker. This will usually undo any modifications made by theming.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
