    Registry Settings Revert after Reboot


    Because the advanced appearance settings in win10 were omitted I manually tweaked the registry. After log off or reboot they (the registry) assume the default state. Now I'm pretty desperate and in fragile mental condition. But I'm here now and know that You'll came up with a solution. P.S. Please forgive my unbearable use of english article.

    =HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors=; =HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\Colors=; =HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics= The same goes when font sizes were changed by Personalization option. Maybe there are some defense features which I don't know how to turn off.

    Hi, I modify these, and from Win 8 onwards have these consistently applied.

    What I found was that the colours I applied were lost after resuming from sleep or hibernation.
    I came up with a slightly complex fix, which is documented in a thread on this forum, which basically means saving the theme (with colours applied) and reapplying that theme using a scheduled task which runs after resuming.

    It took some time to work out how to do that.

    which goes some way to proving some of the missing advanced display settings.
