Hello everyone.  I'm seeking some help to solve a strange issue.  Yesterday I finally bit the bullet and updated from Win7 -> Win10.

As a result I was finally able to update Adobe CC, PS, and Lightroom.

Previously I was running the latest version of Lightroom which could exist on Win7 (which I think was version 6).

 

Anyway, I completed the update to Lightroom Classic v10.1.1 and noticed the menu bar is now a bright white.  Personally I find this very distracting.  Looking back through the forum it seems like there were a couple people who had a similar issue a couple years ago.  They were able to solve by updating to the latest version.  Obviously, that hasn't worked for me.

I also tried to reinstall Lightroom v6.  The menu bar was now white.

I also tried to revert back to Lightroom Classic v10.1.  The menu bar was white.

Then updated again to the latest version v10.1.1.  The menu bar is still white.

Of course I also tried going through Windows settings.  No luck.

However Photo Shop's menu bar is black as well.  So I feel confident the issue resides within LRC.

 

Does anyone have any ideas how I may solve this issue?  Any support would be greatly appreciated.

This is a Windows 10 setting. Go to Settings->Personalization->Colors

Hey DJ - thanks for the super fast reply.  That was actually the first thing I checked.  However it did not take care of the issue.  Please see the attached photo.  I made sure black was selected.

 

Also, it's confusing to me that Photoshop is OK (black menu) but Lightroom Classic has a white menu bar.

So I'm struggling to imagine that a Win10 setting is not correct.

 

If that were the case I'd expect many menu bars for other programs to be white.  However, only Lightroom Classic is white.

 

Any other thoughts or ideas would be helpful.

I have just used the Windows settings and changed my Lightroom Classic menu bar to green and then red, it works for me as expected. You may also have to check "Title Bars and Window Borders" in that same dialog box.

If, like me, you rarely use the top menu bar ( I prefer keyboard shortcuts) you can hide the menu bar with [Shift+F]

Hello WobertC - thanks so much for the super fast reply.  I tried it and it works!!!
Strangely, the minimize and close buttons at the top right also disappear, but I'm willing to make that trade.  Really appreciate the support!!!

Kind regards - Eric H.

The menu bar is white in normal screen mode.

Press Shift + F, and the title bar disappears, and the menu bar turns grey.

Press Shift + F again, and the menu bar disappears altogether.

The title bar with the buttons disappears to give you more space for the image. (You can also hide the Module picker to get a lot more space by pressing F5)

You can close and minimize using the keyboard.

To close, press Ctrl + Q or Alt + F4.

To minimize, press the Windows key + Down arrow.
