Windows 7: Window Color and Appearance - Title Bar Color Can't Be Changed

Window Color and Appearance - Title Bar Color Can't Be Changed

In Appearance and Personalization > Personalization > Window Color and Appearance, I am unable to change the color of the Active Title Bar and of the Inactive Title Bar.

Whatever colors I choose, both the Active and Inactive Title Bars look like this.


I thought maybe a restart was necessary, but restarting has no effect.

Anybody got a cure?

Hello Beau,

You'll need to use the Windows Classic theme to be able to change the color of them. The color is not applied while using an Aero or Basic theme.

(Option Two)
Theme - Change or Save

(Option Two)
Window Color and Appearance - Change

Hope this helps,
Shawn
