    I need COLOR!!!

    Hello. Hope all are doing well. I need your help again, please. After installing Win 10, the color scheme changed to stark white. Too white for me. I found a registry tweak that allowed the colors "back-in" to IE11 & File Explorer. I forgot the site, and after more Windows updates, the colors have reverted back to white. Does anyone know of a registry tweak or 3rd party app that may help me w/ this? Stardock has a $ app for this, but not yet compatible w/ Win10. Any help would be appreciated. BTW. My brothers laptop came w/ Win10 7 he has color & can change it w/ a completely new personalization screen. It looks completely diff. than mine. Someone mentioned an update from Nov. or so that enabled this? Any help at all please. Thanks & Best, LeRoy

    Hi, theming options are much more restricted in Win 10.
    Some options:
    1. Qttabbar (Quizo) - adds tabs and LOTS of options to colour regions of explorer and related windows, plus tabs.
    2. A well-known minor registry hack which changes the background of many areas (not explorer).
    3. Aeroglass (free demo, with watermark, a few euros gets you a license and updates) - adds coloured/transparent title bars and some small frames- some optional features
    4. High contrast themes (see Edwin's in the Customisation section)
    5. See
