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

You can change the title bar text color of an opened window from black or white to any color you want. Once you set the desired color for title bar text color, active and inactive, both windows colors will be changed; however, inactive tile bar color text will look dim. To do this work, you need to disable the option “Tile bars and window borders” on the Colors settings page. When you enable the option “Tile bars and window borders” on the Colors settings page, inactive window title bar text will only use the color you have set. But, the active window title bar text color will look black or white according to your Windows 10 theme.

One should also note that if you change the accent color, your customizations will be preserved. However, if you change the theme or install a themepack, Windows 10 will reset the title bar text color to its default values. So, you will need to repeat the steps.
