Yesterday I took a deep breath and upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10.   It was not quite as bad of an experience as I expected, but of course Microsoft graphic designers had to tweak the appearance (without asking consulting with me first - the nerve!).  Since their new start menu sucks, I installed Classic Shell.  However, I've not yet found a way to revise the various windows themes to my liking.  For instance, each window in an app now has giant hide/minimum/maximum buttons.  This might sound picky, but the size of those buttons really irritates me because they take a little extra space at the top of the app, and I value my space.  I don't even use them (keystrokes are faster).  The other thing is the color of the top section of Office apps.  It's now a lackluster gray with a fade.  It tried all types of themes to make change this to non-fade color of my choosing (Personalization etc.) but didn't find a solution.  All of the Personalization color themes I tried are even worse.  Any suggestions?
