Windows 7: Window Color

13 Jan 2009   #1

Windows 7 Beta 64 bit
Window Color

I am having an issue with the window color. If i try to apply a new theme or click the custom window color button and attempt to change to anything, Win7 reverts it to a clear color. I have been going through forums and cannot find anything.

I have the 64 bit version and an ATI HD4850. I am using the beta drivers for Win7 as the Prerelease WDDM 1.1 did not recognize my composite output. Any help is appreciated.

Try adjusting the Color intensity

Right Click > Personalize > Window Color > Slide intensity slider to desired shade

If that doesn't work I don't really know what the problem could be.

I have tried that as well. It just takes the slider right back to clear. One interesting thing is that it keeps the color as long as I don't hit apply lol.
