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!

Wow, that is a good question.  

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

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!
