    Make selection highlight darker/clearer


    I'm pretty sure that file selections in Windows 7 were quite clear but in Windows 10 they're extremely faint and difficult to make out. The screenshot below shows that some files are selected; file 0008 is clearly selected but the files that follow are also selected but you can barely make it out. How do I make the selection highlights thicker and darker?

    Search Filters: How can I see them?

    Thank you but this does not approach an answer to my questions.

    I have highlighted the questions in my original post to make it clearer to readers what I am asking for.

    Thanks

    The screenshot you posted doesn't look like the standard Windows 10 File Explorer. Do you have some sort of third-party Windows 7 theme installed? If so, I'd look to see if you can change it's settings there.

    This is what selections look like in the standard Windows 10 File Explorer.

    hello tenforums. this is my 1st post & please accept my apologies for bumping this thread. however, i have a similar concern where i can barely see selections, though there is no 3rd party theme installed. kindly see attached image. i am hoping there are some settings i can apply to have darker distinction between selected & deselected items. appreciate your feedback.

    My highlights are a very pale grey so I can only see whats highlighted if I move my head a certain way. It's very annoying to say the least. I would also like an answer to this issue. Doing the Ease of Access doesn't do what I want at all.
