In Lightroom 2015.7 if I press '\' to toggle before and after view the grey background colour changes shade.  This only appears to be the case when 'darker grey' is selected.  This change is distracting when trying to make a comparison!

I am not able to see a change when I set up with the Darker Gray setting for the background color. What is your OS Version?

Hi Rikk, I'm using Windows 10 Pro on a Surface Pro 4.

I first noticed it when editing a portrait image so a lot more of the border was visible.  Then hitting '\' to flick between the before and after view causes the shade of grey to change.  Strange!  Just tried it again, still doing it.

I just tested on WIndows 10 on a laptop and am not seeing what you are seeing.  I have two recommendations:

1. Check with your video adapter's manufacturer (not Windows) and ensure that you have the latest video drivers for your system.  If that doesn't cure it:

2. Reset your preferences by closing Lightroom, holding down [Alt]+[Shift] and relaunching Lightroom. Overwrite the Preferences when prompted. 

Any change?
