Window colors System sounds When a theme is selected in the Control Panel, all three of these elements are changed at the same time. Windows installs several default themes during installation. Additional themes can be downloaded and installed by selecting Get more themes online . On Windows 7 and Windows 8, individual theme components can be customized in Control Panel. However, on Windows 10, this functionality has been moved to the Settings app. The Settings app provides additional theme configuration options that are not found in most earlier versions of Windows, including: Automatically pick an accent color from my background Show color on Start, taskbar, and action center Make Start, taskbar, and action center transparent Lock screen settings Screen Saver A screen saver is designed to prevent "burn-in" damage to the monitor by displaying constantly changing output on the screen after the system has been idle for a specified amount of time. A screen saver can be selected under Appearance and Personalization > Personalization > Change Screen Saver in Control Panel. The following can be configured: Which screen saver to use How long to wait before activating the screen saver Whether authentication is required after deactivating the screen saver Mouse Mouse properties can be set in Control Panel by going to Hardware and Sound > Mouse. The mouse properties are configured using the following tabs: Buttons : Configures the button configuration, double-click speed, and ClickLock settings. Pointers : Configures the pointer scheme. Pointer Options : Configures the pointer speed, snap-to, and visibility settings. Wheel : Configures vertical and horizontal scrolling settings. Sounds System sounds can be set in Control Panel by going to Hardware and Sound > Change System Sounds. A sound scheme can be selected and customized on the Sounds tab. Indexing Windows includes a quick search tool. The search tool is used in the Start menu, File Explorer, and Control Panel. Searches execute quickly because the search tool does not search the entire hard drive. Instead, it searches through a pre-built database.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
