    Big deal. Who cares about the MS apps. There are a gezillion apps on the web that will work.
    I didn't say anything about MS apps. I said, by that time, most apps will likely not run on anything but the latest OS.

    As long as W7 is over 50% of the market, they will run.

    Open Control Panel and in Search Control Panel type Color. In the Personalization section choose Change the color of your taskbar and windows borders and then pick your color and finally click Show Color Mixer down-arrow. Hope this helps.
    Excellent tip! Thank you for pointing that out.
    This led me to realize that these individual settings can be found in GodMode so I've created the shortcuts, (along with other 'pain to access' ones), and put them in a 'New Toolbar' folder for immediate accessibility.

    Thanks again!

    Perhaps it's only for the time being but it's strange they would hide the feature from Control Panel, even though it still works, and not show it anywhere else. A work in progress I guess.

    God Mode is an overlooked option. It is extremely handy for finding those "where did it go?" options. Plus, ability to create shortcuts! I'm including the .REG file here for anyone who may want it. Adds God Mode to desktop context menu.Add God Mode in Desktop Context Menu.reg

    Question on the colors... do you have any idea why the Title Bars in 10074 are just grey, not the color chosen? Love to be able to fix it. Looks drab!

    I'd love to be able to 'fix' it too!
    I think they're moving toward inification with Phones - light or dark theme, period!
    Only way I've given application headers color natively is using a High Contrast theme. Other than that you have to run a 3rd party theme and possibly a Patcher. ;(

    Thanks for reminding me of this function. It does come in very handy indeed!!

    In my case, every single time I need to open the All Apps view I first click the Power Options link. In my opinion it is in a wrong place, it should be at top right as it was in previous builds.
    I liked it at the top right of Start. All the way over on the right as in 8.1 is too far to slide.

    I loved my explorer settings in high contrast. But with 10074 they mucked it up - you cannot set any colors any more. Fortunately I saved a couple from the previous builds.
