I have heard a few people complain that since upgrading to Mountain Lion, their Close, Minimize and Zoom buttons in active Finder windows are no longer color coded (red, yellow and green, respectively) but rather are now gray. If you are one of those who is miffed by this change, you’ll be happy to know that you can easily revert back to the way it was from the General pane of the System Preferences application.
When Mountain Lion installs, the default Appearance setting is Graphite, which displays the buttons as gray. Set Appearance back to Blue and your Finder buttons will be once again color coded.
To Color Code the Close, Minimize & Zoom Buttons
- Click > System Preferences from the menu.
- Click the General pane.
- Click the Appearance drop-down list and choose Blue for colored buttons or Graphite for gray buttons.
