Windows 10: Blue progress bars

    Blue progress bars


    Hey there,
    Did anyone find a workaround to use the blue progressbars—instead of the default green—like we had in Win 7?
    Thanks,

    That would take a specific theme or a modified stylesheet both of which may or may not work in Windows 10 without some serious 'permissions' modifications.

    Could this be a good place to start?
    I've find this app called Visual Element Browser (source here) that is able to see the Visual elements of the OS like we have here:



    The problem is that I can't find the source of VisualStyleElements and also an editor to change the color values. Is there anyone that have used this approach before? Thanks,

    You can start by modifying a theme *.msstyles but be warned that what worked in 7 a lot doesn't work in 10
    also try using "Windows Styles builder" Program
