Thanks Night Train
, You got me looking in the right place, "Background - Menu" in Classic Colors is actually the one that did the trick. I set it to match the color of the (trumpet blast) Menu Background
Never would of made the connection though. Odd setting if you ask me, but thanks again, big time!
You just ended a day and a half of head scratching, tinkering, reapplying, hung up on one little section.
