Windows 10 Tip: How to create a custom accent color

In Windows 10, Microsoft allows you to change the accent color to make the OS feel a bit more personal. Unfortunately, the company did not include a color picker from the options to change the color which means that, by default, you can only select from the options Microsoft has provided.

But, thanks to the Control Panel still being present in Windows 10, you can create your own custom accent color quite easily. To do this, follow the steps below:

  • In the search box type Run
  • Type Control Color, click "Ok"
  • Select any color
  • Click the down arrow that says "Show color mixer"
  • Adjust the sliders until you find the color you want
  • Click "Save Changes"

That's it. Now you can create any color you want for the accent color in Windows 10. If you want to learn more about Windows 10, make sure to check out our review here and for more tips, you can find them here.
