I find it very difficult to read the filenames under each thumbnail because the text is almost the same tone of grey as the background. I haven't noticed much complaints about this, so is there anyone else out there who feels the same, or is it just me? And, is there a way to increase contrast?

I was going to suggest that you change the background color, as Victoria's book suggests, by going to Edit/Preferences/Interface/Background and choosing a different color for the Main Window, but unexpectedly this doesn't seem to work. Either something is broken, or (more likely) I'm doing something wrong. Does this work for others, or am I just in the wrong place?

Have you looked at using the Expanded Cells in the grid, rather than the Compact Cells that you are using in your screenshot. If you switch to Expanded, and then select File Name in the top right box, you should find that it displays with more contrast than if it is displayed beneath the cell in Compact Cell mode.
