iTunes background has gone PINK!


iTunes Icon LogoDescription

In Windows XP or Windows Vista you’ve recently upgraded your Apple  iTunes to the latest version (7.71 or later) as prompted and when complete you re-open iTunes only to discover that the background is pink or purple.

There are no apparent options in iTunes to change the background color.


  • After upgrading iTunes the background where iTunes lists your music is pink or purple in color instead of the usual grey/white
  • The left sidebar in iTunes is a dark blue or dark grey color


This does not mean you’re music collection is a bit sad (even if it is). It’s caused by the color depth in Windows being set to less than millions of colors.  Read on for a solution on how to fix it.
