Big Sur menu shortcuts in gray—fixable?

One thing I didn’t notice in last fall’s Big Sur reviews was that it uses gray text to show keyboard shortcuts for menu items.

I hate this. Apart from the strain in reading gray-on-slightly-lighter-gray text, 36 years of Mac use has trained me to interpret gray text in a menu as “disabled.”

Neither searching through Accessibility Preferences nor Googling has led me to a way to make the shortcuts the same color as command text. Does anyone know how to do it?

NB: I have “Reduce transparency” turned on.

Oh, so that’s what’s happening! I noticed it too but I thought it was me!

Edit: A post on the Apple support site says “In macOS Big Sur, this is expected behavior.” I don’t get it either :man_shrugging:
