I like simple colors when it comes to my user interface in Windows. I do not need transparency, fancy color schemes, shadows and other effects. That’s why I use the Aero Basic theme and not the standard Aero theme.
But there are users who like the full blown Aero interface with everything enabled. The latest Windows 8 leak is probably after their liking. Microsoft has added an automatic colorization setting to the Windows Color and Appearance control panel applet which adjusts the window color based on the color of the background.
A dominantly green or pink desktop wallpaper image would be automatically matched with green or pink window colors in Windows 8.
Want that feature right now for your operating system? Then you may want to take a closer look at the Open Source application Aura which adds automatic colorization of windows to Windows Vista and Windows 7.
Take a look at the demonstration video first which shows how the window color changes depending on its position on the screen and the underlying colors.
