See [44544] and #41286.

[44544] introduced new focus styles for the Windows High Contrast mode only for the main user interface elements like buttons, links, media views elements.

In order to cover all the controls in the admin, there's the need to explore the admin parts that make use of uncommon styles or don't inherit the relevant CSS, for example the Customizer, the themes browser, etc.

Some thorough testing on Windows would be greatly appreciated.
