  2. Title Bars have lost accent color

    Hi

    Welcome to Microsoft community.

    It seems like you've tried several troubleshooting steps already. Here are a few additional suggestions that might help you address the issue with the title bars not matching the accent color in Windows 11:

    1. Check Windows Updates:

    Make sure your system is up-to-date. Microsoft frequently releases updates that include bug issues and improvements. Go to "Settings" > "Windows Update" to check for and install any available updates.

    2. Verify Color Settings:

    1. Go to "Settings" > "Personalization" > "Colors."
    2. Confirm that "Show accent color on title bars and windows borders" is enabled.
    3. Try changing the accent color to a different one and check if the issue persists.
    3. Adjust Theme Settings:

    1. Go to "Settings" > "Personalization" > "Themes."
    2. Select a default Windows theme and check if the issue persists.
    3. If the default themes work correctly, you can try creating a new custom theme with the desired accent color.
    4. Reset Color Settings:

    1. Go to "Settings" > "Personalization" > "Colors."
    2. Toggle off "Automatically pick an accent color from my background."
    3. Choose a specific color for your accent color.
    4. Restart your computer and check if the title bar colors are correct.
    5. Registry Editor (Advanced):

    1. Open Registry Editor by pressing Win + R, typing regedit and pressing Enter.
    2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM
    3. Check if there's a DWORD value named AccentColorInactive If not, create it and set its value to the same as AccentColor
    4. Restart your computer.

    Disclaimer: Generally, modifying registry subkeys or work group is intended for advanced users, administrators, and IT Professionals. It can help fix some problems, however, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For further protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

    Hello, Windows 11 accent color keeps changing :)

    This is currently a bug.

    I often have to go back to accent colors, select a different color, and select my color again to refresh it to show.
