Windows 10 allows us to choose a color for the taskbar, title bar, start menu, window borders, selection box and some other areas of the operating system by picking an accent color in the personalization section of Settings app.
Window color and appearance feature has been dropped from Windows 10. Because of this, unlike in Windows 7 and previous versions, there is no option to set your color for the menu, button text, menu text, and window frame in Windows 10. You need to manually edit the Registry to change the color of these items.
