When using the Login As Admin script, where is the registry key that changes the color of the 'Login Screen'? I have looked everywhere its driving me nuts I'm trying to get rid of that default blue and make it a more neutral grey be a bit more universal.  I'm pretty sure the Login as Admin script uses the default users ntuser.dat and copies that into its own profile but have been unable to make the change happen so far..

**Note, I can get the blue flashing screens before load to change to grey with HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon + Key "Background" value "63 63 63"

At a loss on this one been looking for a couple days with no luck and it's not super important so I thought I'd give it a shot on here.

Yea I know I haven't had time yet for this elusive reg key but I will find it! =) I think a part of the problem is another issue I'm having with reg keys transferring from the default ntuser.dat into the admin account upon account creation I have another thread open on this now. Once that's figured out ill be back here to update which keys they were.

Is default, not needed.

****************

The values in the "Accent" Keys are in HEX.  The values for the "Winlogon" keys are in RGB - All keys for each color are needed for proper function.

Hi bob.omb

registry are ok but it seems "theme" color related things should be made after boot

ex: since reg values can be changed by "theme" or loader (ex: pecmd)
see topic: http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=2209.0

*
I found a utility that can change windows colors after boot, and create a plugin for it
(Update \Downloads\ - http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=1208.0  )

This should do some of the things you are after with "Accent" keys

Downloads\AppYGS\Supplementary\Tweaks\"Windows 10 color control"

See if this helps.
