Windows 8 Aero Auto-Colorization

Microsoft has been getting the hint that users like to customize their desktops to make them there own, and have given them tools to make their own themes. But, with Windows 8, you can have Windows automatically adjust the colors of the Aero interface depending on your desktop wallpaper. That sounds like a nice addition to the new Windows.

In Windows 7, Microsoft added a new Personalization interface, allowing users to customize their desktops as they wished. But a few obvious features were missing, and in Windows 8, the company is finally filling in the gaps. Today’s revelation is one such feature: The ability to automatically configure the color of Aero elements, like the Start Menu, Windows Explorer windows, and the taskbar based on the desktop wallpaper.
