    If you haven't already, you might see if signing out and in, or restarting the computer afterwards may apply it for you.
    Also already tried. It's no big deal, I like the AeroLite theme I was just wondering how the other looked, but it just gives me colored active and white active(have tried many hex combinations too).

    It could be something I have changed in the past causing the problem, so I ran the nuclear version of SFC/DISM

    fsutil resource setautoreset true c:\&fsutil usn deletejournal /d /n c:&Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup&&sfc /scannow&Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth&sfc /scannow&Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase&pause

    and the ISO DISM:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:H:\sources\install.esd

    but they didn't help.

    Ha!!! Got it to work as it should now Shawn!

    What was happening, was, I was copy & pasting AccentColorInactive into the name field, and I hadn't realized that I had copied a blank space before and after the name(like _AccentColorInactive_ ) and of course, that name doesn't exist in any dll library so can't be set.

    Hello unko,

    I believe it's the same. Please post a screenshot showing your registry setting and the color on the title bar to see if it may reveal anything.

    System restore will reset registry.

    System Restore Windows 10

    This is my setup:

    4. Enter the RGB hex number (ex: 696969) for the color (ex: dimgray/grey) you want in the color table below, and click/tap on OK. (see screenshot below)
    Shawn, I found out today, to get the exact color you want with HEX, you need to enter BGR, instead of RGB.
