Windows 98 SE title bar gradient not working

Postby Kaleidoskop » 2019-10-12 @ 16:39


I have this recurring problem with almost all my computers.

I install Windows 98 SE and the video card driver isn't properly installed, so 256 color mode is default.

When I touch the color themes, it immediately disables the second color of the title bar gradient, and then never reappears - even if I have the proper video drivers and 16 bit color or more!

How do I get the second color to be reenabled?

That behaviour of 9x seems normal to me.
Next time, simply save the current design under a new name before changing colour depth.

As a workaround, you can define the second colour manually, if you like.
Here's a bunch of pictues that may assist you. :)
