In win 7 I was able to customize every screen with my choice of color.  Can I do this in win 10?  I don't like reading off a white screen.

and windows 10 is a step forward....the greatest thing since sliced bread and lace up shoes etc etc....and yet making the simple changes that greystoke seeks would seemingly be 'unable to achieve' ...easily....

 

Some of the links found are below. They do not address the specific issue you have ....but maybe you can strike a compromise......In any of these attempts, I would suggest strongly that you create a Restore point before making the changes.

 

You can access System Restore window via searching in Control Panel or just by right-clicking on Desktop computer icon and navigating to Properties where you will get option of system protection.

In the System Properties box, make sure you are in System Protection tab. In the System Protection tab click on Create button to create your own Restore Point for Windows 10.

restore-point-windows-9-2.jpgOnce you clicked on Create button, one small window will pop up, where you can give any name to restore point. In this case, we’ve set it to TechRegar-1, but you can enter your own name. After that, Click on Create button to start the restore point making process.

You can check the progress, it will take few minutes to create restore point.

After creating of restore point Windows will open one notification dialog that will be show “The restore point was created successfully.”

The above process is very simple to create restore point in Windows 10. You can use same restore point to restore your Windows 10 later.

It seems like Condobloke's URL is broken because of the [1] in it (stupid filter rule). Here goes:
