    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,
