Hello,

Is it possible to apply the AccentColor (ColorizationColor in the THEME file) to all titles and frames without explicitly modifying the frames?

Thank you.

1) Change the COLORIZATIONCOLOR:INT values at 

Fonts, Colors, & System Metrics > Colors (Globals)
Windows & Caption Buttons > Aero > DWM Window > Frames > Window > Top > Active
Windows & Caption Buttons > Aero > DWM Window > Frames > Window > Top > MaxActive

Using this tool: https://www.vistastylebuilder.com/forum/index.php?topic=1187.0

2) Change the COLORIZATIONOPACITY to 0 at:

Windows & Caption Buttons > Aero > DWM Window > Frames > Window > Top > Active
Windows & Caption Buttons > Aero > DWM Window > Frames > Window > Top > Inactive
Windows & Caption Buttons > Aero > DWM Window > Frames > Window > Top > MaxActive
Windows & Caption Buttons > Aero > DWM Window > Frames > Window > Top > MaxInactive

Thanks again for your help. I appreciate it.

Can you please let me know what I'm missing?

The color I want is RGB(33, 59, 127).

In the theme file I have:
AutoColorization=0
ColorizationColor=0X213B7F

(I get the correct "AccentColor"=dword:ff7f3b21 in the Registry).

Converting 0X213B7F, I get 2177919. - Following your steps and using 2177919, I get a wrong title color.

It has to be in argb format or ff213b7f (also in your theme file) yielding an int of -14599297

Great! Thank you very much.

I may not have been clear enough.
I do not want inactive windows to have the same title color. How do I change that?

***

So the ff7f3b21 value I got in the Registry is ABGR?

You could try just adjusting the COLORIZATIONOPACITY values in the Inactive windows

You could try this which I'm not sure still works:

Yes. In the registry it is ABGR.

I've tried various values, but the color remains blue.

It seems to work only with the default theme.

Any other idea?

Thanks again.

Nope. All out of ideas. Sorry.

But I've learned the hex format in the theme file should be ARGB, and the format in the Registry is ABGR. :)

Thanks again. I appreciate it.
