    Classic Shell "All Programs" folder colors


    I am using Classic Shell Windows 7 style. When I click on "All Programs" a number of folders have a different color background from the default color set for the Start Menu. Can someone please explain why this is so, and if the Start Menu can be configured to default to the same color background for all of the folders when clicking on "All Programs".

    TIA

    In my case they appear as a sort of dull orange on grey - indicating recent or updated.

    If you care to look through the settings, you may come across this

    Thanks. I thought that might be the case, so can you configure it so they do not appear highlighted like that?

    Much better. Many Thanks!

    I couldn't see those options because I hadn't checked the box "Show all settings".

    Good- it's one program where you can pretty well depend on everything to have been thought out sensibly...
