Most users do not bother to alter the default user interface settings, but some users like to personalize each aspect of the operating system.
Windows 11 does not display the accent color on title bars and window borders with default settings. Because of this, title bars of most applications wear a white/black color depending on the light/dark mode.
However, if you like colored title bars and window borders, you can configure Windows 11 to show colors on title bars and window borders.
NOTE: The File Explorer does not have a title bar in Windows 11. So, when you configure Windows 11 to show color on title bars and window borders, the accent color will show up only on File Explorer window borders.
Here is how to configure Windows 11 to display color title bar and window borders.
