    Windows 10 colors and contrast


    Hello all,

    I had to use windows 10 toda to use Turbotax and I still can not figure anything out. the colors are just harsh,, The contrast is intense and all the fooling withit i can not make it pleasing to use. Is it my system or just how the OS is?


    For an example,, using Thunderbird Mail... It is just WHITE,, the borders are faint and the contrast intense. With 7 I use an olive background, the fonts are black and the rest of the area is gray.

    Is there anyway to get close to this? I use winareo for a lot of thing but even it can not correct windows 10 colors.

    One thing i notice in 10 when i change the task bar or menu then half my fonts are white and half black... Just a general mess,


    If there any third party software that can correct 10? I run QTabBar in the shop computer and it is better but not great.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Here's one view of my file explorer with QTTabbar: (it does not affect other areas), plus Firefox in the background, and part of Tbird:

    Firefox and Tbird (mostly) are changed by their own settings.
    That is typically also true of Office programs.

    Programs common to Win 10 e.g. Notepad, Wordpad- registry settings can be used - also see programs like
    SMACC by member Superfly
    or
    Winpaletter
    (both free, can make it easier).

    Here's my wordpad:

    I have done all of those things and it still is horrid. How can you change the background color of file explorer? All aspects of it?

    How can i get a little color back in some of the programs,,, Look at a screen shot of thunderbird in windows 7,,,, In window 10 it is all 255 white with 1px borders or less.

    QTTabbar: look- these options: under "Appearance"

    Note the comments in my unacknowledged post above, and the 2 utilities there.


    Tbird- get rid of those horrible colours and get back to defaults first.

    Look at how I searched:
