Setting the Window Color

You can fine-tune the color and style of the frames of your windows.

To set the window color:

  1. Choose Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Personalization > Window Color and Appearance (Figure 4.7).

    Figure 4.7

    Figure 4.7 The color and transparency of window borders and title bars change dynamically as you adjust these controls.


    Right-click an empty area of the desktop and choose Personalize > Window Color and Appearance.

  2. Click a color in the list or click Show Color Mixer to create your own color.

    Drag the Color Intensity slider to dilute or deepen the chosen color.

  3. Check Enable Transparency if you want to see through the edges of windows; uncheck it for opaque edges (which uses less power).
  4. Click OK.
