  2. How to change the highlight color properly / permanently?

    Hi folks.

    I'm trying to change the highlight color Win10 is using to highlight text and other objects.

    As far as I could figure it out, the default value is (r0 g120 b215), the "standard Win10 blue", which is stored in the registry here:

    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors\Hilight

    Editing this key can be done manually or by using third party tools (e.g. "Classic Color Panel" from WinTools), changes take effect after restarting the Windows explorer - so far so good.

    Now comes the strange part: The old/default color comes back after a user is logged off and on again, or after the system was hibernated. After rebooting the modified color is there again.

    This problem occurs/occurred so far in all version (build 1507 to 1709) and editions (home and pro).

    Any suggestions how to change the highlight color properly (and permanently)?

    Greets,

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

    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.
