Customizing Title Bar Colors in VS Code

We're doing a lot of migration from one repo to another at work. And it's easy to mix up which-window-is-which when looking at two files that are so similar!

Enter custom Title Bar Colors! Not only does doing this look cool, it's actually incredibly practical!

I first came across this in Wes Bos' Advanced React course, and it's sucinclty covered on Zachary Minner's blog: How to set title bar color in VS Code per project. So I'll let you link-hop over there!

If you don't want to pick your colors, looks like there's even a VS Code plugin that will do this automatically for you! (Thank you Stack Overflow!)
