    I just purchased a hp computer which has the vista pre loaded on it. Great
    machine. I have a question, how do I change that awful gray that comes up
    for the menus? Thanks. Catherine.

    Hi Catherine,

    Right click the desktop, choose personalize. Go to the Windows color
    appearance settings, then click advanced. From the item dropdown, pick
    "menu", then change the color on the right. Apply/ok your way out.

    Best of Luck,

    Where is the ' advanced ' button or control ?

    On my ' Window Color Appearance ' screen there is just a row of coloured screens and a slider

    Running Home Premium.
