[SOLVED] Background color not changing with skins

Post by Tech-Mechanic » Sun Aug 25, 2019 9:00 am

I frequently use MM in a dark room and the white background burns my eyeballs out.

So, I tried downloading some darker skins. I installed them and when I double-click on a different skin theme, the new one does get applied because I can see the icons change but, I still have the bright white background on all skins.

I did have the option "Override skin theme with Windows system theme" set to on the first time I tried it. I restarted the app after turning that feature off but, there has been no change.

Did you set specific backgrounds to be used? That would override the skin backgrounds.

No, all those boxes are unchecked.

Then reinstall MediaMonkey and make sure you don't have it overriding the skin theme in the installer options.

Will I be able to uninstall/reinstall MediaMonkey while keeping the library and all the settings intact?

You don't need to uninstall. Just install again on top. And yes, that keeps your Library intact.

Hi,

I have a similar issue: inverted colour background, with skins only affecting symbols. I have unchecked the windows overriding colours. The install over the top solution works for me too, however, upon close and restart the problem persists. Is it possible to resolve this? I am running windows 10 and MM4 (4.1.24.1883).

Regards,
Steven

Hi,
It is most likely that on Install and immediate launch MM pulled different settings and thus it worked till you restarted MM.

Hi Peke,

Thank you for your response. Do you have an idea what settings it may be so I could try and work through them to resolve? I'll report back with any findings. Thanks

Steven
