    Custom Selection box colors no longer seems to be working in Win 10


    Changing the rgb values here used to work:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\ColorsHotTrackingColorHilight

    Was this ability to change removed in an update or is there a different method?

    :)

    How to change Desktop selection box color

    Try the following steps, and check if it helps.


    • Press Windows + R keys.

    • Type in regedit into the text box and press Enter.

    • Follow the path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors.

    • On the right pane, look for the value of HotTrackingColor.
    Select a color and copy your color numbers

    http://www.rapidtables.com/web/color/RGB_Color.htm

    It is given in three values representing the ratios of red, green and blue that range from 0 to 255.


    • Enter values that mix to the color you want to have.

    • Repeat the above step for the value of Hilight.

    • Restart the computer.
