  1. context menu selection color


    So recently something has changed in Windows 10 that has caused the color of items I've selected to be barely different than the color of non-selected items. This happens in both context menus and even in apps. I think this change started with the 20H2 release. It's happened on multiple PCs, so it is something in Windows itself.

    Here are two examples:
    example1.pdfexample2.pdf

    In the context menu, I've selected something, and in the other, I've selected multiple items. I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to change the color. I know I can switch to dark mode or high-contrast, but I don't care for dark mode for the OS. I downloaded some app called WinaeroTweaker and looked around, and Stardock's WindowsBlinds but nothing has really helped. I've also tried various themes, but they all change a lot of other stuff, and I just want the selection color changed. This is driving me up the wall. I've put a lot of hours into trying to fix this.

    Does anyone know how to change this?

    Thanks

    :)

  2. Custom context menu entries

    So, just throwing this out there, in case somone knows.

    I have added a custom context menu entry for the program rightload, since by default the menu is broken in vistax64.

    It works pefect with single files, but when I select mutiple files and try to open, I get mutiple instances of the program (which makes sense), here is my entry:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Rightload\Rightload.exe --server=1 --autostart %1

    So the %1 passes the filename to the program, and when I select multiple files it is just opening multiple instances of rightload each with a different file.

    What I'd like to do is be able to pass a list of the files selected to the program. Since I know it is capable of uploading multiple files from the context menu, all in one instance.

    So, is there something I can pass besides %1 that will do this? I have looked around and can't seem to find an answer anywhere... *Frown context menu selection color :(

  3. Different colors of context menus???

    Almost everyone have windows 10 now right? Well when I use an OS, I look at even the slightest thing that bugs me. Windows 10 is full of 'em. Most importantly the GUI. I'n the long list of GUI problems, I would like to add another one from me. context menu selection color :)

    You see different places on windows OS have different color of context menu. Literally, distinguishable colors. When you click on desktop, explorer, taskbar, Edge, title bar icons, the list goes on. The thing Which bugs me the most is the black scheme of
    the taskbar context menu. It does not even changes when we select light mode. I have uploaded an image. Well to my surprise I discovered I'm not the only one! there is actually a web site siting the

    problem
    .

    What do you guys think? Is my opinion utter nonsense? Or it bugs you too ;P

    Changing the Color of the Context Menu & it's Font

    This is actually quite nice to see, thank you. So you can edit Fonts still with it (I use Classic theme exclusively). IDK why Microsoft keep removing useful stuff and burying it in the registry - they did the same with MIDI driver selection, which can only be toggled via the registry now.
