    Hello jagman, :)

    If you sign in to Windows with a Microsoft account, then as a test, turn off your "Theme" sync settings to see if that may be what is changing it for you.

    Do you mean that you turned off "Sync settings" completely?

    If not, then you would want to turn off the "Theme" sync setting in Option Two to test.

    Do you have Automatically pick an accent color from my background unchecked in your color settings?

    Thanks for responding, but my settings DO NOT EXACTLY look like your tutorials.

    But seriously, WHY is Windows 10 worth changing at the Registry level if Microsoft doesn't bother putting customization in their GUI which is their BIG thing?
    They sold us on their GUI. Now we have to customize their OS with Unix cmd style level language?
    Yes 10 is a little faster, support stops on 7 in 2020 but is 10 really worth the continuing grief?

    That's ok. Go ahead and post a screenshot showing your settings instead to see if anything may stand out.

    My $%*^$ TASKBAR keeps changing to that UGLY peagreen, Army olivedrab


    color,
    I was in the Army and got tired of it then. Then, along comes Microsoft and still shoves it down my throat.
    I can not find how to DELETE IT.
    HOW DO I FREEZE IT ON A PLEASANT COLOR AND MAKE IT STAY?

    Bad enough it gives me no options to FREEZE a great THEME PACK picture and only has a 1 min to 1 day option AND No "NO CHANGE OPTION".

    I change my mouse arrow to extra large, black and the next day?YEP, BACK TO A WHITE, SMALL ARROW.

    I purchased a "FLEX" Lenovo but it came with an INFLEXIBLE OS"
