    Which window has the keyboard focus?

    Historically, Windows has changed the color of the title bar to indicate which window has the focus. Just upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7, and now I can't tell what window has the focus... yes, if I look really hard, I can see the 1 pixel of accent color around the window that has the focus, but that isn't enough on a high-res screen. What else can I do to distinguish the window that has the focus?

    I too have the same problem.

    I tried using Winaero Tweaker to solve the problem with colored title bars. That just caused another problem as Winaero was preventing newly opened Windows from taking focus, so I am back to square one.

    To me, a lot of the Windows 10 user interface changes seem to be change for the sake of change and being seen to be doing something. Whether any real improvement has resulted is debatable.

    Same here. I think this sucks. It's almost impossible to find out which window has got the focus.

    In addition, using the Aerolite theme allows your to change the color of titlebars, and have wider window borders.

White window frames around every window.
Since 10122 I've noticed that they changed the window frames from using accent colours to just using white all the time. Personally I don't like this and I am wondering if there is a way to bring accent colouring back.
