Wow, that is a good question.  

First Color:  0,0,128
Second Color: 0,0,250?  (Not 100% sure, but a good guess.)

Right click desktop, properties, appearance, "Item" Choose "Active TitleBar" you will then have 2 color boxes to the right.  Choose color1 and color2 (different) and you will have a gradient bar.  Also, you must be using 256 + colors...

Sorry, I have tried this but with no help. The setting you mentioned can be changed but no color changed in title bar. Any Registry for it?

MasseyM, I change the colour with a pair of different colours other than the default colours, and it works!! Thanks! Please answer the question, I will give you the points.

BTW, could you tell me the RGB value of default colour pair of active title bar? Thanks!

Thanks! If you have Windows 98, could you have a look at your screen properties and tell me what is the 2nd colour of default active title bar?

So, you guess the default colour, :-) That RGB value in the answer is not correct. Anyway, thanks!
