    As you can see I set TitleText to 0 0 0, which should result in black colored title text. However it still remains an ugly white...
    I did sign in and out and even reboot, which did have no effect. I do not sync themes, I use the original windows theme.
    All I want is blue colored title bars whilst having black colored text and control elements.

    Do you have a clue what is wrong in my settings?? Before the 1511 update it worked perfectly!

    I'm sorry, but I don't know what you're doing wrong either

    geheim,

    It works fine on my desktop, but on my laptop, it appears that I needed to turn off Show color on Start, taskbar, action center, and title bar below before you see the color you set for the title bar text. You might try the same.

    Start, Taskbar, and Action Center Color - Turn On or Off in Windows 10

    I don't see any reason for this yet, but please try this using the Aerolite theme below to see how it works for you with it.

    Turning off Show color on Start, taskbar, action center, and title bar doesn't have any effect either... Strange... I only get black text in this case (which I would like of course but with all other elements colored ). Setting it to 20 255 255 should now result in a green text color, but it remains black. I can not Change it to a personalized Color.

    It does works when using Aerolite theme! Problem is I don't like that theme at all, with the large borders and ugly controls in the title bar... I know I am a very complicated case, sorry
    Would it perhaps be possible to modify the Aerolite theme in a way that it resembles the original Windows theme, but with the options of customization?? Something similar was possible for the RTM of Windows 10 to get colored title bars as you know for sure.

    So any other idea?? Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it!!

    I will try to create a theme for you, but you need to give me some input.

    You do not want Aerolite right?

    You want the basic Windows Theme with black title text, both active & inactive?
    This means only active windows have colored title bars, inactive windows are nuclear white....

    The only modifications I can do is coloring, of some areas but not all, this is called a "HybridAero Theme". I have created many and might be able to help. You can see my work in this thread: Solved Windows 10 Themes created by Ten Forums members - Windows 10 Forums Further into the thread is where I start creating the Hybrid Aero themes. Post there, the answers to my questions an a description of what you would like for color changes.

    I'll be glad to help if I can

    Hello omnominous, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Does the text color show on the title bar of File Explorer?

    Turn on Show color on Start, taskbar, action center, and title bar. It should show on File Explorer afterwards.
