    Custom Colors


    Add up to 8 Custom Colors in Settings/Personalization/Colors with this Registry Script.

    Copy the Code and Paste into Notepad and save as Accents.reg file
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Accents]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Accents\0]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Accents\0\Theme0]
    "Color"=dword:008cd4e0
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Accents\0\Theme1]
    "Color"=dword:00996633
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Accents\1]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Accents\1\Theme0]
    "Color"=dword:00000000
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Accents\1\Theme1]
    "Color"=dword:00ffffff
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Accents\2]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Accents\2\Theme0]
    "Color"=dword:004b3d20
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Accents\2\Theme1]
    "Color"=dword:00839fa6
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Accents\3]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Accents\3\Theme0]
    "Color"=dword:002b3148
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Accents\3\Theme1]
    "Color"=dword:00a6ac6b
    You'll need to add your own custom colors in BGR hexadecimal format behind each dword:
    Example: This Blue is R-153, G-217, B-234 but you will enter it backwards into a RGB to Hex convertor:

    and apply it for the proper spectrum color to show.

    More good info Edwin.
    Thanks :) So will there be a limitation to the amount of entries?
    It's so weird that they introduce this new "Settings" environment in Windows 10 knowing fully that these options are available to the environment but not give use all the options. This palette of colors could be smaller to give more room for more colors. IMO it's like a bunch of kindergardeners created this interface and forgot to add stuff. lol can't wait for windows ver 10.6832044492

    Apparently the registry will only accept 8 additional entries!

    You have to be careful of the colors you choose or you'll get some pretty 'pukey' looking colors in the immersive UI:

    I thought I had seen this somewhere else but couldn't remember till last nite. In Winaerotweaker under Custom Accents it allows you choose random colors. Hope this helps.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Accents
