Thank you Cliff,

But you are more experienced on Win10 than I am.
It's been a while. Had some annoying upgrade issues, but that's over now.
I did a clean install recently so I'm finally back on track with Win10.
Are we talking about AeroLite/HC or Aero( default theme)?
Not much is changed, basically the same theming logic als in Win8 (though we got a way cooler interface now for sure!).
That dark text on light color reminds me of the desktop icon text that changes as well on solid backgrounds.
Glad to hear that: Orange is fine with me.
It seems only yellow based colors and orange colors keep the black text.
Explorer is an exception with the color but it's the same in Win8; I couldn't find anything on this one either.
About the registry colors:
Isn't that the same as the colors added in the theme file itself? In case we wanna avoid the registry...
But this is for AeroLite/HC themes only. Theme (*.theme) colors should override the registry. Though I'm not aware of all the registry locations where UI colors are mentioned.
Sample from my daybreak.theme file:
Adding this in your *.theme should get the colors in place.
ActiveTitle=138 41 8
Title=255 128 0
InactiveTitle=71 71 71
InactiveTitleText=35 35 35
I'll look more into it when I get some time; now that my install is fresh; all my AeroLite/HC themes made for Win8 work fine on Win10 - build 10586.
For the standard Aero theme we should still expect some unchangeable colors, though I see Shawn's Inactive Title Bar Color tweak as a next move in the right direction for theme customization.
For the moment I'm not using AeroLite: getting used with the standard theme as well which has nice thin window borders.
