Windows 8 Metro Start Menu - Why is it Blue?

    It seems that anytime I try to use the Metro skin for any of the Start Menu configurations, the skin appears a sort of turquoise blue. Is this intentional or am I bugged? I was expecting it to match the color and transparency of the taskbar.

    I don't want to sound entitled or anything, I love Classic Shell. It's just a bit weird. Does someone have a skin that changes it to match the taskbar settings?

    Some skins are made to match the taskbar color and some are not. The Metro skin is not one of them. It was made during the Windows 8 Developer Preview days (2 years ago), and that was the default Metro color back then.

    Okay, just wanted to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong or missing some option to change it. Thanks for the reply.
