    Microsoft Removes Classic Theme Support in Windows 10 Build 10074


    Posted: 29 Apr 2015

    Windows 10 build 10074 got leaked earlier today, and in addition to some visual enhancements to the Start menu and Cortana, it also brought some less noticeable changes that could only be spotted if you dig deeper into the operating system.

    For example, one of the changes that Microsoft made in this build is the removal of theme support and, consequently, the removal of the classic theme, which could really be a major setback for a number of users out there.
    While it's not yet clear whether the company wants to make this change permanent or it's only testing, Windows 10 build 10074 moves the personalization screen almost fully in the Modern UI.
    Ever since it started the Windows Insider program, the company has constantly pushed the Control Panel to the Modern UI, and with build 10074, the transition is almost complete. The personalization menu is now available in the overhauled PC settings screen, so you can only change wallpapers and colors.
    If you access the old personalization screen through Control Panel, you get the same traditional window but without screensaver and desktop background options, so you have to stick to the Modern UI no matter if you like it or not.

    Screensaver settings can be accessed in the lock screen section. There's a link to it at the bottom.

    Another nail in the coffin for those of us who like to run with UAC disabled. No UAC, no PC Settings.

    Have you tried personalising your install and then disabling UAC?

    Why would you want to disable the UAC which is designed as a security measure to help protect you?

    It's there. It just got moved around, for UAC:
    Win+X->System->Security and Maintenance->Change User Account Control Settings

    For PC Settings, it is now: Settings and it's under all apps and you can pin it to start:

    NOTE: Not sure what build you are using. I jump from 98XX to 10074 and this is in build 10074.

    Yeah, why include the 'color options' tile when we can't change the window color to anything from this 'sanitized' off white anyway!?

    the uac is NOTHING but a huge annoyance. anyone that really knows what they are doing makes it one of the first things they shutoff. in most custom builds of windows out their the creator has predisabled it for the enduser.

    Actually, it's the other way around. Anyone that actually knows what they're doing understands why UAC is so beneficial, and understands what UAC is doing for them, and would never consider running without it.

    Anyone that knows what they're doing knows how to work within the UAC framework to do what they need to do without much trouble.

    It's only the people that THINK they know what they're doing that find it to be a problem, because they are constantly having trouble they don't know how to solve. And rather than learn how to solve their problem, they'd rather just complain and turn it off.

    But hey, that's just my opinion.
