    Drive capacity graphic in File Explorer


    Has anyone else noticed this or is it something specific to my Windows 10 Preview (10162). The graphic in File Explorer that should indicate used and free space on a drive is as you can see not very intuitive. It was a pie chart on all previous versions of Windows that I can remember...now it is a donut!

    My wife just pointed out to me that there are two different colors in that 'donut'. Being colorblind I just didn't see that. I still don't see two different colors. Microsoft...what about the American's with Disabilities Act!!

    That's what high contrast themes are for.

    I reported that to MS when I first noticed it a few builds back. They have changed the color. When I first saw it I thought it was all the same color. I had to look very hard to see one color was slightly darker than the other. I still prefer the pie chart over the doughnut.

    Winuser, Thank you! I am not the only one. Changing to high contrast as Mystere suggested does not make it easier to see. The colors are the same. Even if it did correct, it would be an 'overkill' solution to a somewhat minor problem.

    I think when we get the rtm, better themes will be available
