Support Request: Start menu backgroud colour in Metro IE skin


Is there a way to change the background colour of Start Menu in IE Metro skin ? We don't like the default black background so i found out that i could change the colour of most elements in the css file: Sitekiosk > Skins > Windows_8 > Styles > Styles.css
Only place where default black colour stays the same is "Start" menu. Is there a place somewhere in this css file i could use the "background" field to set colour i want for Start menu background ?

This is only possible by customizing the corresponding skin files at “…\SiteKiosk\Skins\Windows_8”.
For the start menu you may should have a look at the CSS part in “StartmenuDialog.html”.

But please understand that our free support cannot offer any assistance with creating your own code or customizing the skin files (apart from the detailed SiteKiosk and SiteKiosk Object Model documentation).

- General Information about customizing SiteKiosk:
