How can I make the non-native Windows 10 title bar of Google Chrome respect the Windows theme switch and change to the theme I choose, depending on the system OS theme?

  1. I enable the non-native title bar on Google Chrome by adding the argument --disable-windows10-custom-titlebar to the Google Chrome shortcut
  2. System and app switches to a dark theme
  3. The theme color does not switch on Google Chrome when Windows 10 custom title bar is disabled.

Expected behavior (by changing chrome's theme color to dark): Dark Tabs on dark theme

Actual behavior (by changing chrome's theme color to default): White Tabs on dark theme

    This post suggests to set the chrome.exe Properties > Compatibility to Windows 7 and try adding --disable-windows10-custom-titlebar .

In the post Custom drawn windows 10 titlebar option gone a user solved the problem by right-click on chrome.exe and setting Properties > Compatibility to Windows 7 and then adding the parameter --disable-windows10-custom-titlebar, like this :

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --disable-windows10-custom-titlebar
