    Edit from the registry


    hello I need to know if anyone knows where the registry keys of these windows appearance options would be shown in the following image Edit from the registry-sin-titulo.png.

    Also on the other hand I would need to know if there is a key of color saturation and the values of windows rgb colors.

    I would appreciate your help thank you very much

    Hi, (second part) perhaps you mean these?
    HKEY_Current_User>Control Panel>Colors

    See this tool which makes this easier:
    S.M.A.C.C - Superfly's Mouse Assisted Color Chooser

    In general, if you want to discover a registry key, use Regshot (free).
    - capture the registry, make a change, capture the registry, compare, get a short categorised list of changes.

    Hi @ppdemo

    Here are the registry settings that I use to customize the Visual Effect Options.

    Use the "DefaultValue" dword to enable or disable an option.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    
    ;System Properties Performance Options Visual Effects
    ;0 = Let Windows choose what's best for my computer
    ;1 = Adjust for best appearance
    ;2 = Adjust for best performance
    ;3 = Custom
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VisualEffects]
