HI All,


I recently upgraded my laptop to windows 10 from windows 8.1.

However the problem I have is that my vision is not that great and I am

having a hard time seeing the bottom bar with the light skinned themed so I am having a hard time finding the setting to change the setting to a dark themed so I can see better. I used XP for a long time so not knowing where to look and find right away. IS FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!!



Thank you,

Right click on your desktop and pick "Personalization" from the pop-up context menu.


I don't know precisely what you're looking to accomplish, but the various settings under Personalization allow you to tweak a wide array of appearance options.  The old high contrast themes are still available, too, but they can be problematic in their own ways.  You may want to do a search from within themes settings for others you could download that have the overall visual characteristics that are closer to what you're looking for.
