Can you change the color of the arrows in the command button?
I know how to change the background colors but is there a way to change the arrow colors from blue. I watched the cmd button video but it did not answer my question.

If you're talking about a command button. You can change anything you want about it, you can even insert a custom image to be the button. If you're talking about the navigation buttons on the bottom, no there's not much you can do there that I know of.

If you're talking about the "preset" images that you make, I don't think you can change those either on the front, but you can always copy it into paint and overwrite the color there and then put it back into access as an image ;P.

You can also go into the character map and find the symbol you want, like ►, then copy/paste that in as text and change the font colors that way.

It's a windows thing, if you press your windows key and type in character map it should come up. You can also google Character Map and see the online version.

You can also get arrows if you change the font of your button to 'Wingdings 3".
Example screenshot below.

Can also use MS Word. Insert Symbol into Word Document the copy/paste into Access. Used to use this method for the Copywrite symbol before I learned about ASCII codes.
