  • How do I change the title bar color in Windows 8 ?

    Surely by now Windows 8.1 has fixed this issue?  I want to use a Dark UI theme, but then you cannot see/read the title bar text.

    I found this comment about Windows 8, and it seems to be still applicable to Windows 8.1 ?

    There is currently no way to set the title text color in Windows 8.

    The title bar color settings are stored in


    There's no option to change the title text color. The only way to do that is to enable High Contrast Mode and then manually change all of the colors in

    HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\Colors
