    Anyone know of a decent 'dark' theme for Windows 10...?


    The white is basically doing my eyes in, unlike any other version of Windows. I've had a look about online, but not seen any compatible for Windows 10 as such. But are there any dark themes like the high contrast ones about anywhere? Using the black high contrast helps somewhat. But it looks pretty shit in IE. Incompetent really how Microsoft don't even have more options for themes. Even looking on their site, there aren't any plain grey/black basic ones.

    Cheers for that mate! Not a bad theme. Where did you get it from? Only thing being though is it doesn't work great with IE as certain pics on websites don't show etc.

    I changed the title bar with this (complicated) tutorial. But it's just the title bar, and with limited colors to choose. It's so absurd this step back in design. Plain white compulsory... worse than Windows 95.

    You pick a High Contrast Theme and customize the colors yourself:

    If you use Firefox, you can control whether High Contrast is applied to web pages or not in Options/Colors.

    How do you get the colour settings up? I've loaded up control panel and personalisation, and have the themes, but not that bit.
