When I was trying to find some color scheme comfortable for eyes on my Windows 8, I have changed my regedit settings using *.reg file. Unfortunately, I don't like it anymore and I would like to restore the default Windows 8 color scheme. How to do it in the easiest way?

Originally, I followed the instructions given here: A Dark Theme for Windows 8

  • Right click on desktop, the customize (prispôsobiť ;) ) and then select what theme you want... I guess.

  • Actually, I couldn't change window background easily (or find proper theme) to have a dark one, so I tried to do so using regedit and I couldn't restore it in regedit. In the end it was so easy it didn't came to my mind... May 2, 2015 at 15:58
