    I actually have no problem with the Win 8.1 Start menu, but the colors of the regular desktop environment are killing me. Namely, the weird, off-off white of the menus. The High-Contrast White option under Personalization gives me the right color for the menu backgrounds but everything else about the theme screams windows 3.1, so I'd rather not resort to using that.
    Is there maybe a registry tweak that I can use to change this one little color? I've tried a few things but nothing so far has worked.

    See attached pic to see what I'm talking about.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated -- thanks in advance!!
