    Windows 10 Pro

    The way Win 10 is going I'm definitely going to upgrade from Windows 8 to Win 10 when it's released. Even though I don't miss the features from Win 8 that was left out I do hope MS gives us a choice for those who want them back.

    Now that would be good. I could make use of that option.

    Settings is just another Modern app.

    Your screenshots are two different things. One is the legacy control panel applets, which are standard Win32 apps, the other is the Settings Modern app.

    Modern apps have never had high contrast, so claiming that Windows 10 is removing high contrast from Modern apps is not really true.

    Try to update your W10 system from the legacy applet. But regardless - High Contrast Themes are an important feature of the OS for those of us that do not see well. Unless there is no support across the whole system - at least the Microsoft part - that system is not useable for me. And I really don't care whether it is old applet or new applet or whatever. In 8.1 it works throughout the 'Change Settings' and in 10 it does not. Example of 8.1:

    I agree with you, whs. It's your computer to set up the way you need it to be set up. Rather than tell you you're doing it wrong, if I knew how to set up High Contrast in Windows 10, I would tell you how to do it.

    No Windows Media Center would be a definite deal breaker for me. I have 2 PC's with HD tuners which record programs using Windows 7 at present. Also use the PC's to play DVD's and Blu Rays and stream stuff online. Those machines would stay on Windows 7.

    Yep I have a PC with 4 HD tuners doing my recording.

    I have all my 8.1 systems setup in High Contrast (see my previous snips). The problem in W10 is that they are missing half of the support for High Contrast. There is always hope that they will fix that.

    Another problem is Office. They have their own themes and in high contrast that is a real mess. MS apparently does not have an architecture control board that controls all that. When I was developing operating systems we had such a board to control; consistency across all components.

    If you just use them for media players, it doesn't really matter. However, there are plenty of third party media center apps out there...

    My new HP laptop came with Cyberlink; a whole slew of stuff associated with it. It's on my HP desktop too.
