How to Show Color on Title Bars in Windows 11 or 10?

By default, Windows 11/10 does not display the accent color on title bars and window borders. Because of this, most application tile bars use white or black color, depending on the light or dark mode you use. Most Windows 11/10 users are happy with these blank and white title bars, and a few like us want to personalize them. If you like colored title bars and window borders, you can configure them through the settings app to show colors on title bars and window borders.

Please note that Windows 11 File Explorer does not have a title bar. So, even if you configure it to show color on title bars and window borders, the accent color will only appear on File Explorer borders.

  1. You can open controlpanel, then in the address bar type C:\
