    Anyway to change color on login screen (accents etc)

    Hi there

    To change logon screen colour and background in W10 doesn't work any more.

    The Windows 8.1 method doesn't work any more -- if you choose the wrong colour at install time you are stuck with it.

    The option to change doesn't work from the desktop - It used to be possible also from the Start screen in W8.1 - example shown below.

    Edit -- my error -- you simply right mouse click on desktop on W10 and then personalize -- it's separate from installing themes. The setting changes menu colour task bar colour and logon background.

    Hello Igentry,

    I'm afraid I removed that tutorial since it's no longer valid in the latest build 10074.

    Currently, this is the latest tutorial below for colors. Hope it helps.

    Hi Brink,

    Did you know that you can edit posts to change what might have changed.

    Members can follow one of your tutorials that reinstate many Control Panel cmdlets (as a folder or in a context menu)

    or ... here are two shortcuts for Windows color cmdlets (not ICC color)
