How to Enable Colored Title Bars in Windows 10

Windows 10 is close to final released and is expected on July 29th. Microsoft has already clarified that not all users will be getting the upgrade on the release date. With the latest Windows 10 Preview build, Microsoft had disabled the title bar colors and made every title bar for open windows to white background. While this looks good, it is difficult to find whether the window is active or not.

Winaero has found out a method to change the colors of title bars in Windows 10 to the accent color in personalization menu in the settings.
