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?

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?

Commented:
I do have Windows98, but I have a customized version... Everything in mine version of Windows is different than the released version....

sorry... I don't have the "default" values...

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