    Hover text color suddenly highlighted in gray? Windows 10 pro


    Hello,
    I'm having an issue where my hover-text and tool tips are suddenly highlighted in gray. I'm running Windows 10 Pro, Version 1607, Build 14393.693.

    Here are screen shots to demonstrate.

    As you can see, this happens when I hover on anything that causes text to appear, and also happens as I roll my cursor down a menu inside any application.

    Any ideas on what could be causing this, or how to fix it?

    Thanks in advance!

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Taskbar: pinned icons don't highlight on mouseover/hover

    Here's the simple fix:

    Settings --> Colors --> Show color on Start, taskbar, and action center [On]

    Change the accent color if you can't see the hover highlight.
