    Hello Eddie,

    You can turn on Show color on Start, taskbar, and action center to have your selected color show on the taskbar as well.

    Partially solved

    We'll call it solved; however, the only way I could get the results I wanted was to use the high-contrast mode, making everything white, and then changing the background color to blue. Now the password boxes & etc. are invisible, so I have to change that so I can see what I am doing.

    PS: My bad manners are showing! Many thanks to Brink for timely and helpful comments.
