    In the past you could...

    Change the font (as well as the size) used in titles, menus, dialogues, file manager windows etc etc.

    Change the background colour used in the above, PDF readers etc

    Choose your own desktop colour.

    Somewhere between Vista and windows 10 all this user choice seems to have vanished. This isn't an academic question, I use these capabilities to improve readability and reduce eye strain. To my vision, Arial fonts are superior as is a parchment background colour and dark desktop colours.

    So with microsoft gratuitously taking useful function away again, I'm one of the many hanging on to their old PC.

    Thus I am wondering if there are any tools that would give the user the degree of control over appearance that we always used to have... from way back in the days of NT.
