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.

Noting that the commit r57553 on #51870 also fixed quite a few instances of missing high contrast focus outlines, reducing the surface of this issue.

  • Milestone changed from 6.5 to 6.6

Moving to 6.6. This needs research; it may be a fairly small number of instances still outstanding, but the research is likely to be more time consuming than what we have left this cycle.
