Windows calendar colors

Ever since the latest windows update, the backgound for the monthly view on windows calendar is white with green letters instead of green with white letters.  Is there any way to change this back?

Can you post a screenshot?

This is the Windows 10 native calendar, not Outlook, right?

If so have you gone into Settings (the "gear" icon) and then Personalize and adjusted the colors there?

I tried to change the setting, but it doesn't allow you to change the color of the days.
Bill PrewIT / Software Engineering ConsultantCommented:
The color of the appointment text on the days is driven by the color you assign to the calendar they exist on.

If you hover over the green calendar on the left list, a small down arrow will appear.  Click that and a color selection will pop up.  Select whatever color you want that calendars appointments to be.

This changes the color of the text, but it does not change the background color of the days, which is what I want to do.
Bill PrewIT / Software Engineering ConsultantCommented:
Have you played around in the Settings, Personalization?  Perhaps "Dark Mode"?  Or following Windows colors and then adjust your main theme?

RyanHelp DeskAuthor Commented:
I tried calendar settings.  Dark mode is not what I want.  I want the color of the days to be green and the text to be white.

Sorry, there does not appear to be any way to do this.
