Allow Quicken Title Bar to Show Selected Windows Title Bar Color

Please add the option to display Quicken's title bar in the color selected in Settings > Colors > Accent Color > Title bars and window colors. I typically set this to a darker blue to make it easier to determine the active window.

    Something should definitely be changed because gray is NOT the color designating an active foreground window.

    I agree. Quicken should follow Windows conventions.

    For reasons of standardization and consistency, Quicken should follow Windows color conventions.  Why would this be beneficial to me ?  For the obvious (at least to me) reasons:  standardization and consistency; I have many windows (applications, file explorer, command prompts) open at any given time; since I don't have 1 monitor for each of those windows, many times the windows overlap.  Having a standard active \ inactive window title bar allows me to more easily see what I'm looking at \ for.  This has been the standard since at least WIndows 3.0.

    With Windows 11 this is even worse.  In Windows 11 if you hover over the maximize button you get a new snap control that allows you to quickly snap windows to certain locations.  The main reason that Quicken isn't follow the standard Windows conventions is because they have chosen to us a "fake main window" instead of the standard one provided by Microsoft.  As such they have to try reproduce all of the functionality that is already built into the standard main window and they are doing a poor job of that.

    I am in agreement with this suggestion. Follow Windows conventions. Several users have stated the reasons already.

    As it is, It's difficult to know which window is active. Please conform to the Windows standard!!!
