    One Of My Win10 OS's - Title Bar of Windows Is Suddenly Purple, Why?

    I have not selected that colour for anything that I can tell, preferring sandy or earthy colours for borders.
    Am using Aerolite Theme with my own wallpaper. The other 10's are all behaving and I'm wondering what the heck I did to cause this.
    Ideas anyone?

    The only time that I am aware that Windows randomly changes the accent colour is if you have "Automatically pick an accent colour from my background" turned on in Settings.

    I wonder if a recent update has turned this on and you had not noticed?

    May be that as I certainly don't have the first turned on. I'll investigate further. I'm beginning to find 10 is a real chore to keep looking "nice".

    I've pinned it down to Windows not displaying Accent Colors correctly. If I choose any of the greys then all sides of the square are the same, but if I pick a proper color then the top title bar goes purple whilst the rest are correctly displayed.
    Now to figure out how to fix it....possibly will have to do an sfc/ scannow or similar.
