    Yes, it is really nice to see, that my google-searches with different topics, bring again and again the solution on the WindowsTenForum!

    Have a great weekend Shawn,

    Hello smitty,

    Yes i read that, too. I assume this change will come with the next large update, planned for November.
    But with the aero-lite-theme you will have additional a larger border around each application, instead only 1 pixel.

    kind regards,

    Hello Smitty, :)

    That's correct. You can turn on or off to show color on Start, taskbar, title bars, and action center in build 10525 and above, then select your color.

    If you like, you can also use the Aerolite theme to be able to change the color of titlebars and have a bit wider window borders.

    Starting in Windows 10 Insiders Preview build 10565, you can now enjoy your title bars with a full color intensity that matches the rest of your theme. Title bars will now appear darker. You can adjust the color. Colored title bars will appear only if Show color on Start, Taskbar, Action Center, and Title bars is enabled.

    Hi Shawn :)

    Is there any updated way ATM to change windows title font color ? ( other way than using winaero tweak which may do that but messes some color settings around )

    can't seem to do that with the tweaks here

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors]
    "TitleText"="190 158 111"
    "InactiveTitleText"="190 158 111"

    Open up Notepad
    You will need to find the RGB values for the color you want, and change them.
    Create a registry file by saving(to Desktop or Documents) as TextColor.reg
    Double click the reg file.
    Sign out, sign in.

    A screen shot with gold lettering, notice the inactive windows are always a bit lighter.
