1 A Dark mode for File Ex­plorer

One of the Oc­to­ber 2018 Up­date’s high­lights is the ex­ten­sion of the Dark Theme to in­clude File Ex­plorer. When you go to Start > Set­tings > Per­son­al­i­sa­tion > Colours and set ‘Choose your de­fault app mode’ to Dark you’ll see that File Ex­plorer is now (largely) dark, too.

2 More sub­tle win­dow bor­ders

Gone are the colour­ful ti­tle bars and win­dow bor­ders – now they’re grey, de­signed to blend into the back­ground. Re­store the old look by tick­ing the ‘Ti­tle bars and win­dow bor­ders’ box un­der Start > Set­tings > Per­son­al­i­sa­tion > Colours. Note the in­creased use of drop shadow.

3 Make text big­ger across the sys­tem

Nav­i­gate to Start > Set­tings > ‘Ease of Ac­cess’ > Dis­play and you’ll see a new op­tion to make the text big­ger across your en­tire oper­at­ing sys­tem, sim­ply by oper­at­ing the slider – once you’re happy with the level of­fered, click Ap­ply and hey presto, the job’s done.
