    Background Color in 10122


    As far as I can remember, I have been able to set the desktop background color a dark value of most colors. I usually use a dark navy blue or green. 10122 allows me to only choose much lighter pastel colors which are much bright for these tired old eyes. Is there any way to get colors I am used to?

    Thank you.

    Hello JJG10,

    If you like, a workaround would be to create a solid color image in mspaint with the color you wanted, and use that image for your desktop background.
