How to change the color of the title bar in Windows 10

enero 29, 2020

In Windows 10, most window titles are white and, starting with Windows 10 build 10056, Microsoft has blocked the ability to change the background color of the window title. Not all users like the color white. The color registration settings in Windows 10 are ignored because of this file c: windows system32 udwm.dll. In this case, if the current theme name contains aero.msstyles, Windows ignores the setting and uses the white colors in the Windows background. You can only change the border color, the color of the title bar simply does not apply. Here's how to change the color of the title bar in Windows 10.

How to change the color of the title bar in Windows 10

The simplest solution is to rename the default Aero theme to something else and delete its configuration references aero.msstyles. Follow these steps:

  1. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the directory:% WinDir% Resources Themes

  1. In this folder, create a copy of the aero folder by selecting it and pressing the Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V shortcut keys.

When the warning box (Access to refusal folder) appears, click Continue to provide administrative rights. If during copying a window appears "access denied", click on "Ignore" (allows to copy files with the extension * .mss).

  1. Rename the aero – Copy folder to something more meaningful, like color.
  2. Go to the resulting folder.
  3. Rename the aero.msstyles file (Windows Visual Style file) in color.msstyles
  4. Then open the "en-US" folder and rename aero.msstyles.mui in color.msstyles.mui.
  5. Go to the% WinDir% Resources Themes directory.
  6. Copy the Aero.theme file to your desktop and rename it to color.theme.
  7. Open the color.theme file using Notepad.
  8. Find the section line: Path =% ResourceDir% Themes Aero Aero.msstyles

Replace it with the following line

Path =% ResourceDir% Themes color color.msstyles

  1. Save the file.
  2. Copy the said file to the color.theme% WinDir% Resources Themes directory.
  3. Double-click on the color.theme file to activate the theme. Windows will switch to the new theme (where aero.msstyles is not set) and the color of Windows 10 window titles will change immediately.

You can change the background color of the window titles in the settings by clicking on the Personalization-> Colors section.
