I would like to replace the default Desktop background image with a darker solid color, on an unregistered Windows 10 Pro (Insider Preview) edition. I am testing various terminal coloring schemes, and the default image is annoyingly too bright and not solid. I have tried all sorts of registry settings and also renaming and replacing the image, but it's always the same.
A few things I tried:
# Take (user) owbership of file: takeown /F C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\Windows\img0.jpg # C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\Windows\img0.jpg $key = 'HKCU:\Control Panel\Colors' # $key = 'HKCU:\Control Panel\Desktop' # $key = 'HKCU:\Control Panel\Desktop\Colors' # # Doesn't seem to effect the Desktop...only console Set-ItemProperty -Path $key -Name 'Window' -Value '1 36 86' # reset to default Set-ItemProperty -Path $key -Name 'Window' -Value '255 255 255'
How can I use PowerShell to set the correct registry item(s) to remove the background image and get a solid color?
