Set a light green desktop background colour in Windows 10

Search Windows > personalization > Colors
(or Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization)

Accent color = green (ToRight 8, top-down 4)

Automatic pick an accent colour from my background = uncheck (off)
Turn off so that we can choose our own background colour

Show color on Start, taskbar, and action center = On

Show color on title bar = On

[JackNg: The green colour background effect in Windows 10 is totally different from older Windows version. Personally, I like the old design way of setting the background colour on older Windows version]
