Google Chrome has built-in color themes and wallpapers to customize your favorite browser as per your mood. Now, Chrome on Windows has a new ability to color its UI. Chrome can now use Windows system accent color as its accent color for title bars and borders. Here is how to enable this feature.
If you enable Windows system accent color for Chrome, the color of title bars, borders, buttons, and other areas in Chrome will change when you change the Windows system accent color. And, if you set it to change automatically with wallpaper, the same will reflect in Chrome.
How to Enable Windows Accent Color for Chrome?
Currently, this feature is available in Chrome Canary, version 99. Google may introduce this feature in the stable channel once the testing successfully finishes, like the recently added Windows 11 style menu.
1. Open Google Chrome on your Windows computer, type chrome://flags in the address bar, and hit Enter.
2. In the experimental flags search box, type the word “Pervasive system accent color.”
3. In the search result that appears, change the Pervasive system accent color from Default to Enabled.
4. Now, restart your browser by hitting on the Relaunch button.
5. Now, on your Windows 10/11 PC, go to Settings and select Personalization.
6. In the next window, select the Color option, and under Show accent color on the following surfaces, enable Title bars and window border.
You have now enabled Windows accent color for Chrome UI. You can see it on the Chrome title bar, border, buttons, and other places.
Please note that since Windows accent color for Chrome is an experimental feature, Google may remove it from the browser. So, if you cannot find the Pervasive system accent color option in your Chrome Canary version, you may check it in the developer, beta, or stable build.
