    Accent color keeps changing by itself

    I am experiencing a very strange issue with my color, ever since the November update it keeps changing on its own. It happens after every reboot, and after about 24 hours of being on, the color changes to this ugly pumpkin orange. At first I thought they just changed it when you installed the update as a halloween or thanksgiving thing, but it keeps changing back. I've tried setting the color manually, or having it pick one from my background, but the orange keeps coming back.

    Any suggestions?

    Hello defaultdotxbe, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You might turn off your "Theme" sync settings as a test to see if that may be what's changing it.

    OK, sorry for the late reply, I've just been ignoring it for the last 8 months lol but I have noticed when the color changes, its a few seconds after authentication, so logging in, unlocking, or connecting to an RDP session all trigger the color change, although I still have no clue why its happening
