Windows 10: colored window borders

    colored window borders


    Does anyone like the colored borders in W8.1 and the option to change their color? I do and notice W10 does not have that option. Do you think the RTM will bring that back? Thank you.

    Hey mate,

    Other than using some 3rd party skinning program when available, the color of window borders will be the same as the accent color you selected. It would be nice if you could change it separately, but I wouldn't count on it being an included feature.

    My beef is that the title bars are all white now and don't match the theme anymore that you change it too. However there is a patch and ways around it. I hope they bring it back as many people were asking for it,

Since 10122 I've noticed that they changed the window frames from using accent colours to just using white all the time. Personally I don't like this and I am wondering if there is a way to bring accent colouring back.
Well, here's some code for a theme that brings borders back, plus a host of other redeeming elements. I've been testing it for a couple hours, there doesn't seem to be any dire repercussions so far. It's quite nice. Thanks to rdwray over at...
