Win10 inactive window title bar color

Win10 is, out of the box, pretty mellow looking ... except for the default bright white window title bars (active and inactive). You can "personalize" (dialog) the color for active windows, but not for inactive ones. Google turned up the following:

I created the REG_DWORD below; It took affect immediately.

v:\> echo %@regquery[hkcu\software\microsoft\windows\dwm\AccentColorInactive]

That's 0x00666666, a darkish grey ... much better than having an inactive window title bar being the brightest thing in sight.

It doesn't affect Office apps, but they retain their color when inactive. Here's a link to the article I found.
