I hate the tan color at the top of windows, and also how it fades from tan to white. I was wondering if it's possible to change that color.

The area I'm talking about is the circled area ---

Does nobody else see the problem I'm seeing? Could this just be a problem with my monitor settings?

Looks like your title bar is blue.
And the Toolbar area (circled in red) is a tan/greyish color. I see no fading or fades to white.
The main icon area is pure white.

I really see no fading.
Everything looks normal.

However you can right click on the desktop and choose "properties" to change your display properties if you wish.

Agreed, the circled area of your screencapture shows no gradation of color.

Can you borrow another monitor to try on your system, I expect it's most likely your monitor is creating the effect you describe. There's a slight possibility the output of the video card could do it, trying a different monitor would show where the effect is occurring.
