If you change your theme to "Windows Classic" then the pale blue will be dark blue.

Right click on an empty spot on the desktop
Select Personalize
In the lower left of that next window, select Display.

Yes got that, but what I mean is a little window which lets you select from a drop-down menu, things like, message box/fonts/ size of mouse pointer and the X,- at top right of screen

You may have to change it to windows basic, then choose window color to get that box.

OK thanks, but that is defeating the object I now have my dark colour in dropdown menu, but lost all my other fav: settings


Understand, but why can't you get that 'box' in Windows Classic??

You might have to go back to you original theme to get a screenshot of the things that seem to be missing for you in the classic theme.
