    How Do I Change Personalization Accent Color Settings Via Command Line/Script?


    Hello,


    In my Personalization Settings, I have "Show accent color on" for Start, Taskbar, Action Center, Title bars, and Window borders.


    I have a batch file that sets the Accent Color like this:


    reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM" /v AccentColor /t REG_DWORD /d 4280488424 /f


    Upon completion, only the Title bars and Window borders are successfully changed; Start, Task bar, and Action Center remain unchanged. Moreover, the registry shows the change; however, when I go to Personalization Settings, it still has the old color selected as the Accent Color.


    I've tried stopping and restarting explorer.exe and dwm.exe but all to no avail.

    All I want to achieve is the exact same result as what I do via GUI: When I make the color change in Personalization Settings, everything immediately refreshes.


    Any suggestions on how to solve this issue?


    Thanks!

    :)

  2. Automatic Accent colors.

    Accent color does not change automatically with wallpaper transition even when option "Automatically pick an accent color from my background" is set to do so. But opening personalization settings act as reminding OS
    to change color even when I does not change any setting. It must change automatically.

    How to solve this problem?

    Color change in taskbar

    Hello pranayvarma,

    Just to verify, have you tried changing the color of your taskbar via settings? If so, try it out and check if the color would remain inconsistent. Here are the steps:

    1. Launch the Settings app.
    2. Select Personalization.
    3. Click the Colors tab.
    4. Uncheck the Automatically pick an accent color from my background.
    5. Set Transparency effects to Off.
    6. Under Show accent color on the following surfaces, put a check on
      Start, taskbar, and action center.
    7. Pick a color that you want.
    8. Restart your PC.

    Let us know the outcome.
