    I wanted to post a heads-up to other Win10 users who have done or want to do "hacks" like this...

    Or this...

    They achieve the desired result, but found it broke a few bits of Windows along the way. Most notably doing this change stopped the Store app from working altogether and made it so I couldn't save new Themes. If you've done this tweak and are having issues, try reversing it and see if that fixes the problem(s).

    I have no problem in my end, and I've done this tweak day one.

    Windows Insiders have a newer build that allows for this out of the box, so the feature is coming, nobody knows when it'll be finalized though. It's all up to Microsoft.

    I stopped doing Insider Builds after Win10 was "fully" released. But good to know the feature is being worked on.

    If it is, I haven't run across it. So far the only thing that officially changes the title bar colors are those hacks. You can change colors of certain objects like the taskbar and start menu, but the title bar certainly isn't one of them.
