How to change the Windows 10 title bar color to match personalization

Here is how you can change the title bar color in Windows 10.

Windows 10 title bar color

Microsoft has almost finalized getting Windows 10 ready, but there is still one thing the company has yet to complete, and that is the title bar. Perhaps, since the beginning of the public preview of Windows 10, we have seen the same white title bar that looks unfinished and it doesn’t fully integrates with the rest of the operating system. However, it appears that with a simple tweak you can enable the title bar to change colors using the personalize Windows color scheme.

It’s all possible by simply installing a specially crafted theme to Windows 10, then you can simply go to Colors in the Personalization section in the Settings app.

The only thing you have to do is to download this zip file, then extract the content, and copy the files to the Themes folder inside of C:\Windows\Resources.

Now, simply double-click the windows.theme file and you will see how the Windows 10 title bar changes color immediately.

If you have enabled Windows to choose a new color scheme based on the desktop wallpaper, you’ll see the title bar color changing every time you see a new background.

Warning: This is not a Microsoft supported method to change the title bar color, as such try this at your own risk, as making non-supported modifications to the operating system could cause problems.

The tweaks are pretty straightforward, however Microsoft is likely to have good reasons why this feature isn’t yet enabled. In the latest public preview release of the operating system, the company added a few improvements to the title bar, but there is still work that needs to be done.
