    Windows 10 selection highlight color is too dark


    How can one change the selection highlight color. I am looking for the old (Win 7) color control panel where the colors were set for various objects like borders, active and inactive etc. Is this panel still available in the Windows 10 control panel?

    :)

  2. How do I change the color and darkness of the highlight when I position the cursor

    Hi,

    We would like to confirm if you want to change the color and darkness of the highlighted link when you position the cursor?

    If you're using Internet Explorer, here's how you can adjust the color of the hover.

    • Go to Settings.
    • Select Internet options.
    • Click on Colors.
    • Select the check-box for Use hover color and choose a color that sticks out better.
    It defaults to red so it looks as if you just need to click the checkbox, because "light (really light) blue" looks like it describes the default not visited link.

    Hope this helps.

  3. Change Windows 10 File Explorer items Highlight colors

    When I open File Explorer in Windows 10, using the dark theme, I want the colors of highlighted items to be different. Previous versions of Windows allowed much more granular customization of environmental items. Those options seem to be gone.

    When I click on an item in a folder window (I.e. file or folder), I want the color used to indicate selection to be a higher contrast with both the text of the selected item and its highlighted color, and the selection highlighting color against the window
    background.

    For example, my File Explorer background is now black, since the latest updates. When I click on an item in the window, I want to see the item highlighted in yellow with black text. That way, the selected item stands out against the window, and the text
    stands out against the highlight color.
