Red Menus in Photoshop

Question

On a Windows 10 notebook I have had an ongoing issue with the menus in Photoshop show red (as in night view mode).  I was never able to resolve this.  I recently set up a new laptop and its menus were white, the way they are supposed to be.  then I installed and opened BYEOS and now suddenly the menus are red, just like the notebook (which also has BYEOS).  I ran a search on "photoshop menus" in the forum but got nothing.  I opened BYEOS and changed the setting to day mode and closed it but that did no good.  I have no clue as to how BYEOS could be affecting the color of the Photoshop menus but the coincidence is too hard to ignore.  Any help?  Al

I was actually the one that started that thread but I see there is a recent addition that I didn't see before.  I'm going through that now.  Thanks for the input, I'll let you know.

 

Took a bit of digging but I was finally able to determine that it was the use of a synced theme that was causing the problem.  Once I switched to the default theme the problem went away.

There are a number of small Programs and Apps on the Web which offer to Change PCs to "Night Adapted" / "Red Screen" modes.  Most of these work by changing the Color Schemes within the "Personalization" portion of Windows 10 Settings.

When all else fails, you can manually tweak those Settings.

Note:  If you find that ONLY the PhotoShop Menus are "RED", then you should look within PhotoShop for its menu settings...

Unfortunately Windows 10 appears to have done away with the "Window Color and Appearance" tool which would allow me to do that.  I am still researching a way around that.

How about BackyarRED?

First, BackyardRED only runs if you run it.

Second, it works by putting a red, semi-transparent, full screen windows over all other windows.

Your description indicates that only some user interface elements in Photoshop are modified. BackyardRED cannot do this.

Have you looked at the post that I linked above that is marked as "Correct Answer"? It suggests where to look and how to fix the issue for Windows 10.
