How do I change the background color in SharePoint designer back to white???

Lee,Javin 21 Reputation points

Not sure how it happened but in my SharePoint designer window for Define E-mail Message when I try to compose an email the color of the window seems to be not what the default is. I don't understand how it changed to this strange color.


I tried going through the (FILE -> Options -> Page Editor Options -> Color Coding) to edit the display settings and looking through all the settings I don't see anywhere that would be setting the background color. And even changing the settings in this window to see if it changes the window background does nothing...

I would just leave it alone but it actually affects my font formatting in a negative way. It adds the same color background as highlighting to the text and the users who are using this find it distracting and want to remove it.

Can someone please help??

Thanks in advance!
