    I guess somebody at MS forgot to add this option; can't be too difficult to implement!
    It's there ... sort of
    That slider with very small indications of color change on the other sliders is a piece of crap! Are they saving pixels or what? There's plenty of real estate on the dialog to show the color in a blob big enough for you to notice and determine if you like the color. It also cracks me up that you have to change the color and open the menu or notification to figure out if it looks good - hahahahaha

    One final thing - is the group responsible for color at MS color blind. Why pick a color and have it splashed on teh menu and notifications with only a minor adjustment to lightness? Every time I try it the tiles on the 'window' get washed out - what a dumb idea. It goes along well with pick a color from the icon and making the tile the same color (blue icon - blue tile) - but at least they're working on that.

    or even better, the old color customization dialogs (I know they're there, I can't find the dll or how to bring out the Hellman's). The metrics are still in the registry and value-attribute pairs are in .theme files. Having the dialog box beats opening a file or mucking about in the registry - plus you get a 'preview'.

    cue the "it's not done yet" chorus

    This almost works, a few too many clicks away though!

    This is the same as that with less clicks.

    Can't search 'colors' in build 10125! It's not in GodMode either!
    Shawn's Personalize(classic) context menu addition does the trick though!

    Instead of attempting the impossible at this point in the systems early days.
    Why not try a simple approach, I do this when work changes my background via group policy and forces every one to have the same background.
    They load a image onto your machine, I simply change the image,
    What I do is edit the ACL on the image to give me full writes and remove the ability for the system to rewrite over it.
    Then I replace that image with my own - same name same location, re-login or let the GPO update in 15 minutes and my own wallpaper is now displayed (I wrote a PowerShell script which prompts for an input with the default window and overwrites the file for me).

    Rename the existing windows 10 image file and replace it.
    Reboot machine and you should see your custom image on the password screen.
    Just make sure the image is the same size in pixels and the same name.
    Now I haven't tried this yet this is just speculation for a work around.
