How to Change Window Title Bar Text Color on Windows 10?

Microsoft provides you with a feature that you can use to change the title bar text color of an opened window from black or white to any color you want and can personalize your system according to how you like it. Once you do it, the colors of both windows, active and inactive, will be changed to your desired title bar text color. You can differentiate between the two by how dark the color of the windows is (the inactive window will be comparatively dim). You will have to start by disabling the option “Tile bars and window borders” on the Colors settings page. If you enable the option “Tile bars and window borders” on the Colors settings page, only the inactive window title bar text will have the chosen color, and the active one will look black or white according to your Windows 10 theme.

On a side note, changing the accent color will keep the customization safe. However, if you change the theme or install a themepack, the previous settings will be restored, which means you’ll have to repeat the above steps.

This risewindows article will discuss how you can change the title bar text color on your system.
