Clear Recent Accent Colors History in Windows 11

You can personalize the color or accent color for window title bars and borders, the Start button, or the taskbar in Windows 11.

You can change the default Windows mode and app mode for colors to Dark, Light, or Custom.

The Dark mode has a darker set of colors that are designed to work well in a low-lit environment. This option is for the Start menu, taskbar, and notification center.

The Light mode setting has a lighter color scheme designed to work well during daylight hours. If you choose this option, you’ll be able to show an accent color for window title bars and borders. The Light mode doesn’t personalize the color of the Start menu, taskbar, and notification center (that option is only available for Dark and Custom modes).

The Custom mode gives you more options somewhere in between Light and Dark. You can choose an accent color or have Windows select one (the accent color will provide a contrast with or match your wallpaper and Windows color). This option is for the Start menu, taskbar, and notification center. You can also show an accent color for window title bars and borders. You can play around with the colors and modes to see which ones work best for you.

When you manually change the accent color, Windows 11 will remember your last five Recent colors to make it easier to select from.

This tutorial will show you how to clear and reset the recent accent colors history to default for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.
