    how to change inactive windows top/border from white?


    Greetings.
    I have found the setting where I can change the color of active windows top and border, but nomatter what I change, an inactive windows top is _always_ white. I would like a dark blue for an active window, and a lighter blue for an inactive window. Is that possible to do? Maybe with regedit?

    You could try using the Aerolite Theme and see if it helps.
    You can get the theme and read about it here:

    Yes and no.
    It changes the color of the border of the window, NOT the color of the top bar of the window . It changes the color of the text in the top bar though, so it must be possible to dot it?

    You'll need to create a Registry entry at the highlighted location:

    Thank you. Now I can change the color like I want to, so it fits the inactive windowtitle textcolor (which I can't change).
    Why on earth has Microsoft made it so difficult for us to set a minor thing as color-choise??
