    Windows 10 accent color not working!


    This is very annoying. I cannot get my accent color to work in Windows 10. This GIF explains it well:

    Any ideas? I'm thinking I gotta change something in the registry but I don't know what.

    Are you using 1 or 2 monitors? Some have experienced difficulty when using 2.

    Yes, I had this too. I could not figure it out no matter what I did. It was stuck at blue!

    I downloaded this little app... Getting brighter colors in Windows 10 - RaMMicHaeLs Blog

    Check the box that says "Disable new auto color accent..."

    Once I did this the problem went away! I am not sure what registry setting this changes, but it appears to correct some issue that locks the color at blue.
