    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.

    Hello Shawn mate I cannot get any other colours as you show in the settings > Colours - there is no chart to pick from.

    When I pick Background it shows a preview of a dark grey taskbar and poo brown panels - then when I go to Colours I do not get a choice anything but poo brown and dark gray and that is by using the Show colour on Start.

    I am running an upgrade in Classic Shell because I just really cannot get used to the panels setup would this have anything to do with the colour settings??

    I would like to get this sorted because I am thinking of getting my main laptop on 10 too in the near future by upgrading so I get the free offer then do a clean install because funds are quite tight at the moment.
    Edit just found that very bottom switch has to be turned off to get the other colours.

    Hey John,

    Please go ahead and post a screenshot showing your Color settings to see if it may reveal what the issue could be.

    It could be Classic Shell though.

    Ok I will Shawn but I think I have actually found out why I wasn't getting the colours option. In settings > Colour there are three switches the auto one at top if I have to have that set at off then then the colour selection comes up and I can select the colours I want and as long as I keep Show colour and Make Start switches to on then I am able to set the colours.

    It is just a bit more convoluted than the 7 method and was just confusing me as to what the heck I was doing wrong Plus I find using the Edge rather than Chrome harder to use because of all the clutter of ads and links that become visible when one opens it.

    With the Classic Shell I have found getting to the Control Panel and Computer etc so much easier than using the default panel setup and to get to Settings I just have to push Start and then go around that window and to the Settings tab - I cannot go straight up because that opens All Programs . Probably just a matter of finding my own little system of getting it to work. But as I mentioned before it is a fair bit quicker than 7.

    Look I know I am a pain but after much thought on it I have come to the conclusion that I shall have to use 10 sooner or later.
