    Strange Red Highlighted Text in hover over description and menus in LR


    As displayed in the image, it started this morning in Lightroom but happens anywhere in Windows when I hover over things and a description is displayed. The text in the description is highlighted in Red as it is here. Any ideas on how to fix this please?

    Edit: Just went into PS and I get this purple over my rulers top and sides and this dark red on the file name bottom left.

    Strange pink highlight on hover/tooltip text


    It looks like the RGB value that my computer has set should be similar to R: 253, G: 0, B: 249.
    In the "Colors" directory of regedit there's no value that looks as if it has been set to the hot pink colour. Interestingly the hot pink highlight also shows up for some text in regedit:

    Note: the pink highlight doesn't occur when I actually highlight things. It doesn't disapear when I highlight things either. It just shows up by default on certain bits of text, most commonly settings tabs (File, Edit, Tools, View, etc.) in most programs and hover/tooltip text on things - e.g. Hovering over a text document on my desktop will tell me the Type, Size, and Date modified but all this information has this strange pink highlight.

    Because of this I'm not sure which value to change as Hilight seems to be set to the default blue, could you suggest a directory where I might find the correct value to change?

    Thanks Strange Red Highlighted Text in hover over description and menus in LR :)

    For some reason tooltip/hover text and some other text (often for settings) is highlighted pink. This is shown in the screenshot. I believe in previous versions of windows you could change this in "advanced apperance options" however that was removed in windows 8 and 10 (I think). I would like to change the pink highlight to the default white (no highlight).

    Are you, by chance, using "OldNewExplorer"? I had this happen to me (but blue highlights) when using "OldNewExplorer" and after changing the settings within the config file, it corrected and the highlights were gone. If you're not using "OldNewExplorer", well then I'm afraid I got nothing to help... *Sad
    Just in case you are...the setting I changed were:
