    How do I change Minimize, Maximize, and Close colors in Windows 10


    Is there any way to change the color of the Minimize, Maximize and Close buttons in Windows 10? The reason I ask is that if I set my Window border color to black (through the hidden Color and Appearance window) or any dark color for that matter, I can't see the buttons at all!

    Border color set to white:

    Edit: I also just noticed something else. The window name is also black so you can't see that either with the black border.

    It doesn't look like this theme makes the buttons white.

    Best that can be done that i know of unless use some other third party software, as minimize and maximize change color when you bring the mouse cursor over it, yes then stay originally white.

    Hi

    I had this problem too so I decide to make my own visual style ( using vista style builder - paid licence but worth it )

    so I changed buttons colors like the minimize one for example in screenshot :

    otherwise the easiest way is to find a theme which have already modified buttons color .

    Have you tried this with the latest Insider build? 10565 might be of high interest to you.
