Windows 10: Title bar text gone

    Title bar text gone


    I recently messed around with theming Windows using uxtheme, but ultimately I was unhappy with the results so I reverted everything back. Since then, however, I have no text in the title bar of any programs. The title bar is bright white on every app, and I tried out a dark theme so it's possible the text is there but white. Specifically, I tried Nocturnal W10 and After Dark CC. Some of the themes link to additional programs to change various aspects of Windows, and I tried to go through all of them but I can't find an option. Everything else on the system is back to normal except the title text.

    How can I revert this correctly so my title text comes back?

    You can try running "Old/New Explorer" one more time to set defaults.

    That unfortunately did not fix the problem, the text still doesn't appear.

    The first theme you link to had a "AutoHotKey script to remove titlebars" did you disable this script?

    I didn't use the AHK scripts in the first place. I tried running them anyway and it completely removed the title bar (I couldn't close windows because the buttons were gone). No dice.
