Is there a way to change the color from yellow to something else that is much easier on the eyes to read?

You could try switching to Audacity's Dark theme - the yellow track-name text is more readable in that theme

Go to Edit > Preferences and choose Interface

and the in the Theme dropdown, select Dark

You can always revert to the default Light theme if you don't like the dark

If you make a custom theme, the colour of that text is defined by the colour of this square ...
