    Pixel border around active window

    Hi there - first post as a new Windows 10 user migrating (returning) from OSX.

    So far only two issues found on 10130:

    Orange active window border:
    I have this horrble orange colour around the active window.
    I have changed all the colour settings but bothing seems to change the active window border.. any ideas on how to get rid of it. It is really obvious on Firefox for instance with a thicker part at the top tabs section and thinner elsewhere.

    TaskBar locking:

    Occassionally the taskbar will lock and not autohide - even though there are no alerts. Need to sleep/retart to get the autohide to work again... anyone else having this issue?

    I'm not sure about the border issue but here is a post with maybe a fix for your taskbar issue.

    I had intermittent hiding when set on auto hide, sometimes it wouldn't hide, most times it seems to work. I haven't had any problems for the last day or so, it is still a TP so some things might be erratic.
