    High Contrast and Mouse Settings

    Bendezium Lurker

      Hello, I'm pretty new to DEM and getting the hang of it. I have a user who has a vision impairment and is asking for high contrast mode with a large cursor using the feature where the cursor changes colors depending on the box beneath it. Additionally, I need to preserve our stock wallpaper. This is a Windows 10 floating desktop pool. I've spent quite a few days working on this and don't think I'm any closer. Just when it seems like it is working, I realize it is not. Part of the problem is I don't have a great test environment with admin creds to cleanup the profiles I've left behind through my testing so I've left a bevy of high contrast and mouse size/color variations in my wake.

       

      I have a custom template with the following in Personalization:

       

      [IncludeRegistryTrees]

      HKCU\Control Panel\Accessibility

      HKCU\Control Panel\Appearance

      HKCU\Control Panel\Colors

      HKCU\Control Panel\Cursors

      HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop

      HKCU\Control Panel\Mouse

      HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes

      HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\MuiCache

       

      I also have the following registry configs set through User Environment. As far as I can tell, these are being set properly but the cursor is not consistent across desktops int he pool as I would expect it to be after adding the Cursors registry tree. Although the wallpaper does seem to be sticking to our standard.

       

      [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes]

      "ThemeChangesMousePointers"=dword:00000000

       

      [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes]

      "WallpaperSetFromTheme"=dword:00000000

       

      Any help would be much appreciated!
