    Old Appearance control panel: 3rd-party tool?


    You all may remember that amazingly detailed little appearance panel that let us do things like change the size of the font in the title bar, change the thickness of window borders, change the font in context menus, change the colors of individual things like the backgrounds in app windows and explorer windows, and many other wonderful things. I think we still had it in 7, but I know for sure we still had it in XP. Now we have Settings and Personalization. It's not even remotely the same degree of control. Has anyone seen a third-party tweaker out there that will let users do those individually interesting things in W10?

    :)

  4. Old Appearance control panel: 3rd-party tool?

    Where are the old Control Panel items?

    I didn't get them to work by using the program, the 3rd party tweak tool had a function that let you see almost every shortcut to parts of the Windows Shell.
