Changing Colour of Dialogue Box's interior from white in Windows 8
How do I change the default interior color of Dialogue boxes in Windows 8? I do not need to alter the Brightness or re-calibrate the display. I do not wish to change the color of just the borders of Windows. On previously versions (XP etc) I was able to change the default white in-fill to a shade of pink which aided me manage my dyslexia. I wish to do this on my new Laptop, and have been unable to negotiate through the Control Panel options to locate the correct function to do this.
The ability to change individual parts of the Windows colour scheme was removed from Windows 8 - I cannot see any reason why they chose to do this.
They do supply various 'themes' for windows and you can download more, but in my experience they probably won't help.
I use a pale green background on my MS Office programs as I find the white just too bright. You can still change these on Office 2010, but they have removed this facility on Office 2013. Office 2013 is particularly glaring and hence I have stuck with 2010.
However I helped someone in your position many years back by applying a pale coloured 'Gel' from a theatrical supplier over their monitor. (Gels are used to colour lights in theatres, including spotlights.)
A pale red may do what you require - but is not as satisfactory as changing the windows settings.
