There is no way to do that unless the windows has its own frame drawing code.

Not really because it doesn't happen, that's not how Windows works. There is a function to set title bar text. There is no function to set title bar alignment, font or any other style settings. Its difficult to find support for things not happening but I could probably find example of code for custom window frame drawing. Do you have any examples of centered title bar text?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I'll second satsumo's comment that there is no way affect the title bar other than to set the title bar text.

Basically, the title bar is totally controlled by the operating system.  It's operating system properties that sets the font and color of the title bar, and even when a program is deadlocked and not responding to the operating system, the operating system still has the power to update the title bar.

In other words, you could say that the title bar is outside of the control of the application EXCEPT for the API function that lets you modify the text.

Now of course you could create a window without a title bar, and draw your own title bar.  Then you could have full control over your title bar.  But then you would be losing all the benefits that come with a title bar (such as the power of the operating system to update the title bar even when the application is no longer responding to the operating system).
