    How to set Black Accent Colour in Windows 10

    Windows 10 has brought to us the ability to set a custom accent color. Microsoft lets you choose from a palette of 49 hues, which is probably fine for most users. In fact, you can let Windows auto-match the color according to your wallpaper. It also provides us to pick an exact color, including saturation, hue, intensity, and brightness.

    This feature is actually awesome but the drawback is that it doesn’t provide an option to choose the pure Black as an accent colour. For all those dark theme lovers out there, there’s a way we can do that with just a simple registry edit. Let’s see how.


    1. First of all open Settings App and navigate to Personalization and chose Colors from the left menu bar. 
    2. Disable the option “Show color on Start, taskbar and action center”
    3. Then open Registry Editor by using Run window (⊞ + R) and type regedit and press Enter. 
    4. From the sidebar, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM 
    5. Then Set ColorPrevalence to 1 and AccentColor to 171717 (Double click to change the values).
    6. Now right click on the main screen and select New ->  DWORD (32-bit) Value and name it AccentColorInactive and change its value to 444444 (Double click to change the values).  
    7. Finally its done. Enjoy the black accent color on Windows 10.
