Microsoft removed all options from the Personalization window shipped with the classic Control Panel in Windows 10. This is a regressive change from a usability point of view. In the classic Personalization UI, all settings were in a single window, accessible with one click. But the Settings app is a mess. It starts slower, all settings have been rearranged across different pages. When you want to open something like Screen Saver or just change the theme, it opens the classic Control Panel applets any way. It is obvious that Microsoft is still transitioning from the Control Panel to the Settings app, but it is not yet complete, nor polished. I prefer using the classic Personalization UI.

The Personalization Panel for Windows 10 restores the options which were removed from the desktop context menu and replaced with the Settings app.

Personalization Panel for Windows 10 has an authentic look like the original. It is a portable free app which supports all editions of Windows 10 and works with 64-bit (x64) and 32-bit (x86) versions. The application can be integrated directly into the Desktop context menu from the app's options so you can use the personalization options like previous versions of Windows.

The application supports translations. You can change the user interface language using the "Options" link.  It comes with the following languages out of the box:

Arabic (Saudi Arabia)
Bulgarian (Bulgaria)
Chinese (Simplified, China)
Chinese (Traditional, Hong Kong SAR)
Croatian (Croatia)
Czech (Czech Republic)
Danish (Denmark)
Dutch (Netherlands)
English (United Kingdom)
English (United States)
Estonian (Estonia)
Finnish (Finland)
French (France)
German (Germany)
Greek (Greece)
Hebrew (Israel)
Hungarian (Hungary)
Italian (Italy)
Japanese (Japan)
Korean (Korea)
Latvian (Latvia)
Lithuanian (Lithuania)
Norwegian, Bokmal (Norway)
Polish (Poland)
Portuguese (Brazil)
Portuguese (Portugal)
Romanian (Romania)
Russian (Russia)
Serbian (Latin, Serbia)
Slovak (Slovakia)
Slovenian (Slovenia)
Spanish (Spain, International Sort)
Swedish (Sweden)
Thai (Thailand)
Turkish (Turkey)
Ukrainian (Ukraine)


The application does not allow you to share themes or create themespacks from within the theme list. To solve this issue, click the "Theme Gallery" link under the theme list and create the themepack file/share the theme from the opened window.

Translate "get colored title bars"

To translate the "Get colored title bars" link, add to your language file the following line:

lblColoredTitlebars.Text=Your translation text here
