  • Open any window to see the font text colour of the title bar. In the screenshot given below, I have opened Notepad. As it can be seen, the font text colour of the title bar is black. We are going to change it to red, with the help of a program named regedit.


  • Open the start menu and type in regedit. From the search results, select the regedit program and when the User Account Control asks for permission, allow it to be run.



  • Now, In the left pane of Registry Editor window, find HKEY_CURRENT_USER and click on it.



  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER expands to a navigation list to give you a number of options. You need to find the one named Control Panel and click on it.



  • The next step is to click on Colors, which is an option listed under Control Panel.



  • Once you click on Colors, in the right window pane of Registry Editor, you will be able to see several entries. From these entries, under the tab Name, find the one named TitleText. Give it a double click to get to the next step.



  • Now a small window named Edit String pops up. There will be a box named Value Data and this is where you should give the rgb value of the colour that you want your title bars to appear in. Since we want our title bars to be red in colour, I have given the rgb values as 255 0 0. You can change this as per your choice of colour.
