When you open two windows in your Windows computer, the one you are viewing or handling is the active one and the other which goes at the backdrop becomes the inactive window. Similarly, when you tap on that window, it becomes active, while the window that was previously active goes to the background and turns inactive. The screenshot shown here will give you a better understanding. However, if you change the color in Windows 10 using the Personalization Settings menu, then Start menu accents, Start button, taskbar, title bars, window borders, buttons, text, Settings accents, sign-in screen accents, and Action Center accents but not the title bar of the windows. The inactive title bar continues to remain white. You can change the color by tweaking the registry keys.
