Colours

 

Here you can choose your color mode - Dark, Light or Custom (if you choose custom then you can set one mode for Windows and one for your Apps) - example images below.

 

You can also enable / disable transparency effects.

 

And finally choose an accent colour and where you want to use it e.g. on Start Menu, Taskbar, Window title bars and Window borders.

Themes

 

Windows 11 comes with several brand new themes designed to work with both dark and light modes (covered above) and to complement the new centered Taskbar and Start Menu.

 

You can choose one of the themes included with Windows 11 or you can browse more themes in the Microsoft Store.

You can choose whether to show a Picture, Slideshow or Windows spotlight (a series of images from Bing which are overlayed with location information and useful facts).

 

You can also choose whether you wish to show detailed status on lock screen for Mail, Calendar or Weather.
