    Strange Office 2010 Title Bar Colors

    I recently installed a copy of Office 2010 Pro onto my Windows 10 laptop. When I open any of the apps, the title bar appears to have one color superimposed on top of a lighter color except where there is text. It only happens with Office 2010 apps, all other apps are OK. See pictures. I cannot find anywhere in Office to change this and do not want to fiddle with Windows 10 color settings too much without seeking advice. The old Windows Classic Colour scheme was simple to use, but it has gone away.

    Any help to fix this would be appreciated.

    Just a suggestion.

    Ask your question at Microsoft Community, Microsoft Office 2010 forum................

    It seems to me to be more of a Windows 10 color scheme issue rather than an Office issue. There is nowhere in Office to change colors that I can find. The same install on my Windows 7 laptop and desktop is OK. But I will ask at the MS Community too. There have been lots of postings on the Windows 10 forum regarding Office problems running on Windows 10.

    The link I gave you is a forum dedicated solely to MS Office 2010.
    They all use MS Office 2010 and it is likely they have a trick or 2 to help you.

    I will ask over there too. Someone somewhere has experienced this phenomenon too, I can't see it is mine exclusively.
