    What happens when you try? Can you post a screenshot maybe?

    Didn't work for me either, Wolfgang. And mine's regular.

    I think you just reminded everyone again where to find stuffs easily. +1 for God Mode. It's been a while since I last used it.

    You are all talking about something different. Here is what I try to do. And besides being extremely inconvenient compared to 8.1, it does not work.

    Yeah, the modern settings seem to be limited in a lot of places!

    While you're on that one window, type 'color' in the search feild:

    then choose this result specifically:

    Edwin, thanks, that looks good. I will try that. But what an inconvenient way to get back to something that you can get with 1 click in 8.1. W10 really sucks. I am getting more and more disenchanted.

    Update - that worked. But again, I had to make detours to save the new theme. What a mess.
