Anyone know how to change the 1903 background back to how it was beforehand? (without reverting the version of windows, obviously).

It really annoys me being that light of a color. I've searched and so far can't find anythign telling if there's a way to change it... which I kind of doubt there is.

They need to stop so often doing drastic changes related to the look. I have a vision issue, so some changes really bother me. And most people don't want big changes in the look, they justw ant bug fixes, security, and new features.

I haven't downloaded it yet but have you tried looking in windows personalization?
yes, I looked, but none of the backgrounds looked right. It had a browse button, so maybe there is some other place where older backgrounds were.... but I assumed if it's still a choice, it would be there with the other ones.

I'm sure it will seem trivial, but I'm sensitive to the slightest changes in about anything. lol. I'd probably get sued to it, but would rather it be the darker shade.

i don't understand the question. how is it different than setting your color preferences as usual? you can always install and use Classic Shell to make it look like older windows. 1903 is not a drastic change at all.

Thanks, Colif, but by it saying 4k is it only used when the screen res is set to 4k or it will use it at any res, but the image is specifically 4k resolution?

As for the other posts, I am talking about the brackground image, as is talked about at the link Colif gave.

I would restore windows back and then download the image, and update yet again, but that would be a big hassle, especially with my pc already about on its last leg.

I'm not the only one to consider it a drastic change, as some article was bragging about what a big and supposedly great change it was.

There is a a dark and light setting at the bottom of colors page, perhaps if you hit dark it would be better for you?
that doesn't change the background (the desktop background). Although I probably should stat doing darker themes in general. People say darker themes are easier on the eyes and I ahve a bad vision problem and have been using default themes for decades.

I like nice bright whites, but I bet it does strain the eyes more...

i don't usually use background images. I use a solid easy to look at color and use BGInfo to put my computer details on the screen. that way i can always know what machine I am currently working on (I remote a lot)

ok thanks everyone for the links., I'm ina rush to go sleep and will get back to it later. Or I may just get sued to the other one. It sure does make all of the icons and text stop standing out as much, though.
