I don't believe it's possible. High contrast is a system theme. It's possible to have windows switch to a basic theme when running certain programs, but even that reverts the whole system. A Guy

I was hoping for a solution :/ the 2013 suite of office is blindly bright and that "dark grey" option is an utter joke. High contrast is the only way to make it bearable in the wee hours of the morning

Dark/High Contrast Settings
Hi everyone, I've used WindowBlinds extensively in the past, but now with the color change options of Aero, I really don't have a need for it anymore. The problem is, however, that I can't get some things dark like before. For example, Start Menu, folder backgrounds, and the page in Word are all...
