Hi Donovan, I am sorry it is not possible to set white as the accent color in Windows 10, the reason being that a lot of the User Interface text is White.

There are plans inf the future to allow for a lot more customization of the UI in Windows 10 — hopefully Microsoft do this sooner rather than later . . .

How to Add Custom Accent Colors to Windows 10

It’s easy to change Windows 10’s accent colors, the shades that appear in your taskbar, Start menu, settings menus and in some window title bars. However, by default, the operating system only allows you to choose from a predefined palette of 48 colors. If you want your taskbar to exactly match your company’s logo shade or, if your favorite hue of yellow isn’t one of the default four dozen, there are a couple of ways to add your own custom hue.

Add a Custom Accent Color Using the Mixer

If you don’t have a precise color to match and just want to fiddle with some controls until you get an accent shade you like, you can use Windows 10’s color mixer. If you have the RGB or Hex code for a particular color, you’ll have to use the other method: adding custom colors to the registry.

1. Open the run prompt by hitting Windows + R or typing «Run» into the search box.

2. Type «Control Color» into the run box and hit Ok.

A window appears with a list of colors.

3. Select the color block that is closest to what you want. The window title bar will change to match that color.

4. Open «Show color mixer.»

5. Adjust the Hue, Saturation and Brightness bars until you get a color you like. As you move the sliders, you will see a preview of the color in the window title bar.

6. Click Save Changes.

Add a Custom Accent Color Using the Registry

If you have an exact color you want to use as an accent color, you need to edit the Windows registry to add it. The «color mixer» method described above just isn’t precise enough.

1. Open the registry editor by typing «regedit» into run box or the search box and hitting Enter.

2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_Machine\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\ by opening the folders in the left pane.

3. Create the Accents key under Themes if it does not exist by right-clicking on the Theme folder and selecting New -> Key then renaming the key to «Accents.»

4. Open the Accents key.

5. Create a subkey named «0» under Accents and another named «Theme0» under that.

6. Create a new DWORD (32-bit) value named «Color» under Theme0. You can create new DWORD values by right-clicking in the right pane and selecting New -> DWord (32-bit) and then renaming the entry it creates.

7. Open the Color DWORD value by double-clicking on it.

8. Enter a color value in ABGR (also called KML) format and click OK. ABGR stands for Alpha Blue Green Red and is composed of hexadecimal numbers. This tool will convert regular hex or RGB colors you get from an image editor into ABGR.

9. Close Regedit and restart your computer.

The new color will now appear at the bottom of the list of hues in the Accent color menu.

You can add up to seven additional custom colors to the menu by creating additional theme folders under the Accents key in the Windows registry. You need to name these Accents\0\Theme1, Accents\1\Theme0, Accents\1\Theme1, Accents\2\Theme0, \Accents\2\Theme1, Accents\3\Theme0 and Accents\3\Theme1.

How to choose a custom accent color on Windows 10

Windows 10 Creators Update adds a new option to pick a custom accent color and for solid color desktop background — Here’s how to do it.

The Creators Update for Windows 10 adds new option to choose a custom accent color. Before the Windows 10 Creators Update, you were able to change the accent color to make your experience a little more personal. However, Windows 10 only included a limited number of colors that you can choose from.

You’re able to use Control Panel’s Color and Appearance to customize color accent, but the OS removed this option with the Anniversary Update. Also, there was a workaround that involved editing the Registry, but it wasn’t practical, and it didn’t work for many users.

Fortunately, on “Windows 10 version 1703”, Microsoft is introducing a new color pickers to set any accent color you want to see throughout the OS, and there is even an option to select a custom color when setting a solid color as background on your desktop.

In this guide, you’ll learn the steps to choose a custom accent color on Windows 10, and how to set a custom color when setting a solid color desktop background.

How to set a custom accent color

To set a custom accent color on Windows 10, do the following:

Open Settings.

Click on Personalization.

Click on Colors.

Under “Windows colors”, click the Custom color button.

Custom color settings

Select the color you want using the color picker.

Choose a custom accent color

See the “Color preview” to get a glimpse of how the new color choice will look.

If you know exactly the color you want to use, click the More button, and enter the RGB or HSV color you want.

Specific RGB/HSV custom color settings

Click the Done button to complete the task.

Once you completed the steps, you’ll see your new custom color in the Taskbar, Start menu, windows, and throughout the OS.

The only caveat is that even though you can virtually pick any color, Windows 10 won’t let you pick certain colors, because they may be hard to read or not supported.

How to set a custom solid color desktop background

On the Windows 10 Creators Update, it’s also possible to pick a custom for your desktop background, which is something that wasn’t possible in previous versions.

To choose a custom solid desktop background, do the following:

Open Settings.

Click on Personalization.

Click on Background.

Under “Background”, select Solid color.

Click the Custom color button.

Custom color for desktop background

Select the color you want using the color picker.

Pick custom background color

See the “Color preview” to get a glimpse of how the new color choice will look.

If you know exactly the color you want to use, click the More button, and enter RGB or HSV color.

Click the Done button to complete the task.

Once you completed the steps, your new custom color will appear on your desktop. Unlike using a custom accent color, you can pick any color you want for your desktop background.

If you can’t add a custom accent color on your device, it’s probably because you’re not yet running the Windows 10 Creators Update, which is set to release in mid-April 2017.
