    I read a while ago that they (Microsoft) were going to add color for the borders and title bars in Windows 10. Is there any new information on that issue? One of the things I liked about Windows 8 and 8.1 was the way you could easily add and change colors. The all white of everything in Windows 10 is really boring and annoying......Logman

    Hello logman, :)

    Starting in build 10525, you will be able to turn on/off to show the color for borders and title bars.

    If you're not using the Insider builds, then you could use the tutorial below for now if you like to have color for your title bars and borders.

    ^-- That's a bad tutorial that involves introducing system changes that would have pretty much bricked your 10565 system if Microsoft hadn't put in a block to prevent that theme trick from working any longer. Don't copy off the MSStyles files like that: it's just horribly broken and does horrible things when your system gets updated.
    Hello @Preppy,

    Please explain specifically how simply only changing your theme to the Aerolite theme would do that?

    I've experienced no such issues using that theme.

    Nope, you're right. That switch is safe. I should've followed the link: I was thinking it was the trick theme rather than just moving to aerolite. Keep up the good work

    Ok. Good. Yeah, that one wouldn't have been good to try.
