    Win10 scrollbox contrast

    That works fine on Windows 98SE and Windows 7, but I tried it on Windows 10 and it had no effect. I even tried a gpupdate /force and rebooted. I altered the first scrollbar value under Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors to 200 200 250 and the second under...
