    Removing the BLUE outline on just about everything in Windows 10

    Is there ANY way to remove the stupid blue highlight around just about every box in Windows 10 anniversary edition.
    Searchwindows, saves etc. Everything highlighted blue around it.
    Narroator is off ofc, and I read that only removes it in previous windows.
    It does not work in Windows 10 anniversary. It's driving me insane, blue boxes everywhere !
    I did not have this previous to the update, not sure if its related to color intensity slider that no longer works in anniversary (I had it to 0)

    Help ;/

    Just one note: the only fact that you don't like it doesn't necessairly imply that it's "stupid". It's an "on focus" reminder. Not much stupid. Just say "that blue outline i don't like" instead
    Just consider the fact that also non-Microsoft Java FX by default uses the on focus outline...

    Anyway i'm experiencing the same with internet explorer's search bar. But it's limited to IE. It doesn't happen for example in notepad. So i think we are experiencing different issues
