    not possible without 3rd party software. you can change it somehow but it will always change it back! i repeat NOT POSSIBLE save your time for something else

    What do you mean by "it will always change it back"? Will Windows 10 restore the original aerolite.msstyles if I edit it? Because that is what I was talking about.

    there is a way to change the font color in registry or something but after a restart it will be changed back. you cannot save it so it will stay like this it will always change back to white font color. searched the last few days just for this bulls**t and it will not work. f*** you ms for being such assholes.
    only way to do it is 3rd party software which i will not use

    Can you post a screenshot of what yours looks like now? I have the custom color titlebar theme and my taskbar text is white, like this..

    The close button only turns red on mouse over!

    I did look at your screenshot, but the title bars of active and inactive windows seem to be the same color, and as you mentioned the close button only turns red on mouse over. I would prefer to know immediately which is the active window without having to over the mouse over close buttons or looking for slight differences between titlebar's font colors...
