- Open the registry file. Click on the “Start” menu, select “Run”, and type in REGEDIT. Click on “Ok” or press [Enter].
- Navigate to “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors”. These give the RGB values for the color of each Windows’ component. These will show all of the color values, many of which are not available through the Windows GUI (from “Appearance” tab in “Display Properties”).
- Change each value. The “Data” column holds the RGB value for all component shown here. For each listing that is not set to “0 0 0” in the “Data” column, double-click on it and change it to 0 0 0 with spaces between the zeros. Then click “Ok” or press [Enter].
- Close the Registry Editor.
- Restart the computer.
