Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop and select Personalize.

From the vertical menu on the left you'll have options for changing the look of what you want to see.

You may also have High Contrast turned on inadvertently.

Click the start menu button and open Settings (the gear icon)

In the Find A Setting box type: high contrast

and open the search result and make sure it's turned off.

High contrast is on how do I turn it off

There are several High-Contrast theme options in a drop-down menu. Set it to None.

Ignore the pop-ups. Were you able to set the Theme to None?
