If you have also noticed, when you go to Colors, you can turn “Off” “Automatically pick an accent color from my background” to choose your very own accent color, but the number of colors you can pick is somewhat limited and it doesn’t allow you to create your own colors. However, what you probably didn’t know is that by modifying the registry, you can add up to eight additional new colors to the collection.

Windows 10 custom accent colors

You’re now done. Remember that you can create up to eight custom colors that will help you to keep Windows 10 unique. It’s also worth pointing out that you can only change these settings starting on Windows 10 build 10162 or later.

Do not forget to create the Color DWORD 32-bit value on each Theme* key specifying the color that you want to add.
