    Colors Get Wonky in Slow Ring 16288


    Just after upgrading to the slow ring Build 16288 late last week, my desktop color scheme developed a horrible shade of yellow around lots of UI elements, including Button stuff, Hilight, Highlight Text, and HotTracking color (all from HKCU\Control Panel\Colors). Drove me bonkers until I found a way to restore defaults at WinHelpOnline.com. In case anybody else runs into this, I blogged about the symptoms and the fix in my Windows Enterprise Desktop blog this morning: Wonky Win10 Colors Require Registry Edits - Windows Enterprise Desktop.
    HTH,

    PS: this was the predominating shade of yellow that pervaded my desktop and UI elements:

    Reminded me rather too much of diaper changing duty when the kiddos were still using them. Sigh.

    Hah! Logged into my system again this morning to discover the same awful colors established AGAIN. Checking the relevant registry keys, I found no changes from the default. Then I remembered seeing here the discussion that slow ring IP is having difficulties with the Nvidia device drivers. Sure enough, the new version pushed out Wednesday (9/20) immediately fixed things up as soon as it was installed. Go figure...
    The default registry key settings files are still useful, though, and now I've got them where I can find them easily and quickly, should I ever need them again.
    Sigh.
