I went in to Services and 'themes' was turned off. So I enabled it and restarted the computer. I still had classic, but this time when I went to Control Panel (all) > Display > Color Scheme (for the umpteenth time) it included Basic as an option, whereas before it only allowed classic and high-contrast.
