How to change selected edge width and color in Maya 2020?

When in edge mode and selecting edges it is difficult to see which edges I have selected. I would like to increase the width and change the color of the selected edges. I would like this setting to apply to all meshes, new and old, and be the default when re-opening maya.

Here is what I have seen so far:
Display>Polygons>Custom Polygon Display has an Edge Width slider. This seems to be a method for changing some existing edges rather than a setting which is configured broadly. It also seems to have no effect on the edges in question.

Windows>Settings/Preferences> Color Settings has options in both inactive and active Components>Polygon Edges but these are limited to indexed colors, and I cannot select a custom color. Further, the active polygon edges affects selected edges but the inactive option does not affect unselected edges.

Indeed, I also could not change the edges for the inactive polies. Can be a bug.

You can execute any line with your own numbers to change corresponding index. The table, found on web, not precise for M2019, noticed a difference. You can color-pick existing palette and update the list.

WARNING: The changes will be permanent.

Technically it should be located in the colorPalette.mel in prefs folder, however I could neither find it nor get it loaded with Prefs. So you can make own MEL script with custom color prefs and Source it from the ScriptEditor.
