    Thanks for all of your suggestion's, it's just kind of frustrating at the moment how the developer's of windows 10 keep restricting user's of 'tweaking' item's in the system.

    Maybe it's on purpose, to as my father used to say "Keep honest people honest" or as Germans say "Chance creates the thief", and keep people from having a possible bootleg copy later.

    Cliff S,
    I went into task manager, restarted file explorer..that didn't seem to help, I changed to a windows 10 theme..that didn't seem to help. I'm just going to be patient, someday..I'll be able to change the 'title bar' color from the rather drab light gray that it is now.

    Maybe it was designed that way from photo editors, a perfect neutral gray so the icons show their true color without bleeding

    Hi All,
    I'm running build 10061, I'm beginning to wonder if my copy of the latest build of the tech. preview is possessed, I can get the taskbar / start menu color's to change, but I can't seem to get the windows title / header color to change. It just want's to stay a light gray color for some reason.

    Hello David,

    I'm experiencing the same thing, and think it may be a bug when updating to build 10061. I'm going to be doing a clean install of build 10061 later today to see if the title bar color changes in it or not, and will post back. :)
    @Davy49,

    Well, I was finally able to do a clean install, and this will still not change the color of Window borders in build 10061 unless you are using a High Contrast theme. Hopefully it'll be sorted in the next build.

    Could be by design though, Light or Dark theme, period! A lot of features seem to be filtering back and forth between PC and Phone Previews.

    Hi Shawn,
    Thanks so much for once again trying to help ALL of us on this wonderful site ! Of course if I really had /needed to for a 'valid' reason, I could of course go into the registry and change it. Have a GREAT day !
    David :)

    Hi All,
    I was hoping with the latest build (10074) that the color and appearance (being able to change border color,etc.) might have been fixed. Much to my dismay..it hasn't changed.

    Be sure to use the "Windows Feedback" app to let Microsoft know. If they get enough requests, they may add it back. :)

    Update:

    In Windows 10 Insider Preview build 10122, the selected color is also applied to your sign in screen.

    gah! i hate the white title bar on windows 10, M$ Bring back the color you fools !

    i've read how to change theme with the new theme by Brink that allows changing window title bars, but my Windows isn't activated yet, so i can't "technically" change themes, is there a work around for that ?
