    Is it possible to set a custom active title bar color via the Registry?

    This works for the inactive title bar color:
    Code: reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM" /v "AccentColorInactive" /t REG_DWORD /d "your color here" /f[/quote]

  2. Explorer title bar text color too bright grey

    To change the title bar colors in Windows 10, you can use the built-in colors by changing the High Contrast Settings without editing the registry.

    Here are the steps:

    • Click Start, and then click Settings.
    • Click Ease of Access, and then click High contrast.
    • Choose a theme. You can also change the colors for the Text, Hyperlinks, Disabled Text, Selected Text, Button Text and Background on this option.
    • Click Apply.

    Let us know how it goes.

    How to set a custom active title bar color via Registry?

    Title bar colors all of a sudden started appearing? Can't remove. How to set a custom active title bar color via Registry? :(


    HI!

    Unfortunately selecting that option turns off the color for the taskbar as well. While this removes the title bar color and sets it back to white it also removes the color for the taskbar.

    I don't know why, or even how, but I've always had a custom task bar color of blue with no colored title bars. The issue of the title bars appearing as my custom color only just started this morning with no changes to personalization or colors made. The only way I found to keep the colors on my taskbar only while bringing my title bar colors back to white was the registry edit above.

    Thanks!
