Mine is easy to read.....
Right, but the fact that there are a bunch of color selections that aren't is a problem. It's like nobody at Microsoft tested some of these to see if they were usable before they threw it in the palette.
Anyone else noticing increased CPU load after yesterday's security update? My Pro 2's CPU speed never drops out of turbo mode any more, running at a constant 2.3GHz.
If anyone else hates the new logon background image as much as I do:
Create DWORD "DisableLogonBackgroundImage" and set the value to 1.
This gives you a solid colored background there like it used to be.

Thank you! One eye-sore gone - a few hundred more and we're good to go, surely they can manage that in the 4 days they have left ? : )
If you want to insert your own pictures for some reason there's a tool described over here.
Looking at things from a positive angle, I suppose we should be grateful they haven't made ninja cat an official non-changeable background yet.
Personally, I'd feel safer just disabling it. That tool modifies a system resource file and you never know what the consequences of that could be.
Too true. And the converse is also true: something different in Windows 10 can break long-running legacy software.
Case in point: I still use Microsoft Money (for more than 10 years), even though Microsoft has long since dropped it. It's been perfectly fine, up until build 10240, when it suddenly announced that it needed IE6 in order to run.
There's a workaround; a tweaking of the version number of Edge in the registry from 9.11.10240.16384 to 9.11.10240.0. Now Microsoft Money works again, but as you say, who knows what other consequences may be. And I'll bet when Microsoft updates Edge, it will break Money once again...
This got a "chuckle out loud". Talk about perseverance. Running MS Money with Edge, what kind of dark magic is this!
"If it ain't broke, don't 'fix' it."
The irony is that MS Money doesn't need a browser for 99% of its functionality. In fact, I never use it. It's a bell and whistle that Microsoft provided to link into a long dead MS Money web site...
