    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

    @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 !

    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.
