I am trying out Windows 11 on an unsupported system to see how it works. However there are a few things that I am not really fond of and that is having to run in dark mode to allow me to see the date and time in white, having the new tab and the top tab bars in black, and cannot find a way to change the start button to make it darker (am running translucency).
Is there a way to change these please as I will have to eventually go over to Windows 11 on my supported laptop and buy another r machine when support for updates is stopped.

Ok Thrash Zone I will try that.

OK mate I tried that and it worked but still leaves me with black new tabs and top bars??

Correction it just leaves me with that time and date in black which is so hard to see at a glance but a small price to pay I suppose for tabs I can now see in light mode.

Hi,
Also might help to disable auto pick a color and just select black....
