    Make mouse sensitive part in top border visible?

    Original title: Change color of mouse-sensitive top border of Explorer window

    Hi all,

    I'm not native English so the expression of what I want to achieve might not be exactly the way you would say it in american/english.

    I have read the posts about customizing and I have tried the suggestions, but it doesn't do what I want.
    Whatever I change in settings, my Explorer windows keep a white background.
    The annoyance is that there is NO visual difference at all between the mouse-sensitive area in the top border where you can click and hold to drag the window to another position and the rest of the top border which holds the thumbnails.

    Therefore, window handling isn't as easy as it was previously and particularly older people who haven't grown up with Windows will not be able to learn easily how to move windows around the desktop.

    Is there any way to achieve this?
    I appreciate your help on this one.

    Thanks in advance,
