How to Automatically Change Windows 10 Accent Color

Windows 10 Personalization settings allow you to change your accent color automatically by using one simple setting. Let’s learn how to use it:

  1. First, make sure you have set to change background wallpaper. There are apps that can do it, or you can use BING wallpapers, and even photos from your personal library.
  2. Once done that. Go to Settings > Personalization > Colours
  3. Toggle the option which says Automatically pick an accent color from my background.

Now every time your wallpaper changes, the accent color will change accordingly. If you think the colors are a bit too much, you can control it by turning off the option just below it. It will keep Start, Taskbar, action center, and title bar off the grid.
