Do you have Windows 98 or 95 'Plus!'?  If 'yes', create a theme in your Win95/98 machine you want to use in Win10, then save ALL its elements in the Themes folder.  Then copy the whole Plus! folder into Program Files x86 in Windows 10, and finally navigate to that and make a desktop shortcut to THEMES.exe .  More detailed steps are here.  Works in Win8 and Win10.

 

Then at will, double click on THEMES.exe .  That should work whether you use a High Contrast theme or not.  It might not work for all elements of the theme.  It worked for me on font face, size, and some colors in Win10 64-bit.  In fact, it's the only way I know of to change desktop font faces in Win10.  All the registry hacks of the early Win10 days don't work, anymore.

No, I can't send you a screenshot, sportman12, sorry!  But I did do a video on it, using Windows 7, since I can't yet find a video screen recorder which works in Windows 10.  The mechanics are the same.  The video on Plus! is the last 14 minutes, and it didn't work in 7 but will work in 10.  So follow those mechanics shown, and just ignore the fact they don't work in 7.  They work in Win8, and in Win10, I actually did them as shown in the video.
