    She got the F1 again because it read the "new hard drive" Another reboot and it should go away. That is part of the boot up, to read the hardware.

    Clever as a cartload of monkeys!! How on earth was this discovered?
    I really do not know where this procedure started, but it was not by anyone here. This was posted a few days ago on several sites, so this is not something "new". This is where I first found it: http://winaero.com/blog/get-colored-...in-windows-10/

    well, if you don't know where it start, then you don't know that it was or wasn't from someone on here. there are several places all over the net which have been playing with this for weeks.

    ok, so for those who want to have colored title bars, just follow the steps below. i have done it, and it is working perfectly. i have mine set to change color with the accent colors of the background, and i have my backgrounds set to change every minute with a different pic. so i never get bored with the colors. if you have any questions, please feel free to ask them, and i'll do my best to help.

    Step 1: Go to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
    Step 2: Copy the "aero" folder and paste it into the same Themes directory. Confirm the User Access Control request (UAC) and skip for all MSS files when prompted.

    Step 3: Rename the "aero - Copy" folder to "windows" and confirm the UAC request if prompted.

    Step 4: Go into the "windows" folder you just created and rename aero.msstyles to windows.msstyles. Confirm the UAC request.

    Step 5: Go into the En-US folder and rename aero.msstyles.mui file to windows.msstyles.mui.

    Step 6: Hit the back button twice and return to the Themes directory. Copy the aero file and place it on your desktop. Rename it to windows and open it with notepad.

    Step 7: Under the [VisualStyles] section, find: Path=%ResourceDir%\Themes\Aero\Aero.msstyles
    Step 8: Replace it with: Path=%ResourceDir%\Themes\windows\windows.msstyles
    Step 9: Save it and then double click the file to enable colored titlebars! Go to the Settings app > Personalization > Colors and adjust your accent colors to your liking.

    it adds quite a bit of color to your desktop, and gets rid of allllllll of that white.
    There may be people playing with changing the title bar color for weeks, but no one has published the procedure you outline above weeks ago. Please show me one link that shows this procedure with or without images that is weeks old.

    since it was a big topic just recently on this thread, if anybody wants to change their TITLE BAR COLOR and size, i can show you how. you can choose a dedicated color, or have the title bar change colors as one of the accent colors. anyone who hasn't figured it out yet, and is interested in doing this, let me know and i'll post the steps.
    What made it a big topic was the claim that coloured Titlebars had to be eliminated to suit the style of Apps (which then triggered an "App vs Programs war").

    How do you change the colour of the Titlebar without using High Contrast or the Auto-colour theme?

    Update

    Never mind I just saw your solution.
    Windows are much nicer now.

    Thanks.

    first of all, once again, you have no definitive idea of what all was or was not published over the last few weeks on the entire internet. so quit acting like you do. second, i have no intentions to go back through all of what i have read, trying to find a link for you. do your own research. and lastly, who cares?

    Wow, that is about the strangest thing I've ever seen. Suggestion that may or may not work. Stop Insider builds and then restart them? If that doesn't work, I'd think a clean install is in order.
    I had the same issue and if I remember correctly, starting and stopping insider builds fixed it.
