    Toolbar Buttons Changed Color
    Just got a new iMac 21.5 about 1 month ago. Everything is fantastic. I'm very particular about some things, hence the question...which is: How do I change my minimize, exit, and maximize buttons back to red, yellow, and green? Right now they are all gray. This happened after I installed iPages from the App store.

    Have you tried rebooting your iMac? Pages does nothing to change the system colors. Also, in case you accidentally changed the appearance of your desktop, open System Preferences, Appearance, and make sure the desktop colors are set correctly. The buttons should be set to blue.
