    Appearance setting won't save on starndard account.

    i enter admin password and set appearance settings, yet they won't save. Appearance setting are still on and when i go back there i see checkboxes checked. Wtf ? This is freshly installed windows. Service themes is running.

    Thanks for help.

    EDIT: i think i found solution, you have to through start and write adjust appearance and performance of Windows. I think they are disabled now, however i would like to check them one by one. Is there anywhere list of all these settings with pictures what they do ? I wasn't able to google what each of them does and some of those i don't even know what they do...

    If you mean this window you have to pick one of the options at the top. Selecting "Custom" allows you to check what you want. I tried to find a list (with pics) that says what each does but couldn't come up with one. You can Google each separately although some (Shadows) are obvious. You can also try checking and unchecking boxes to test the effect. Selecting "Let Windows choose what's best for my computer" is the most obvious (and probably best) choice for most users. I use Custom because I'm not a fan of animations and with a dark theme shadows don't show most of the time anyway.
