AeroRainbow Enables Windows 8 Like Aero Color Rotation On Windows 7

From Windows Vista, Microsoft corp. has added a new dimension in visual styling called “Aero Peek” and this has been one of the major improvements in Windows 7. Although it’s been almost final on 7, but yet one thing is missing. Areo Glass Color doesn’t have dynamically changing features. It’s been confirmed that Windows 8 is the ability to dynamically change Aero Glass color according to the color scheme of the current wallpaper. AeroRainbow is a 3rd party application which can automatically change the Aero color shade according to current wallpaper, active window, or by predefined shades. This tiny app can change color of your Aero Glass randomly after a fixed time, or it will allow you to create a list of colors to appear one after another. Join us after the break for more info.

AeroRainbow displays three options on the desktop (in the form of shortcuts) to access configurations, launch and close AeroRainbow. To begin, bring up Settings window from system tray menu to configure the color sources. In Settings window, you can rotate Aero Glass colors in random order with defined switching speed. The second option allows changing the Aero colors according to the wallpaper, whereas, the last two options lets you change Windows 7 Aero glass color according to current window on screen and add custom color list as source for changing Aero colors.



If the tray icon was disabled, then сore engine of AeroRainbow will be invisible, i.e. no UI showing during work. In that case user can access settings using "AeroRainbow Settings" shortcut. If tray icon is visible, it has handy context menu.

Left click on tray icon will show current and next colors of AeroRainbow.

There are several options available in configuration window.

These options are following:

  • Always random color tells to AeroRainbow generate and use random color for Aero Glass.
  • Use the colors list option allows you to add your favorite colors to list, and AeroRainbow will use them for Aero Glass.
  • Speed adjusts the speed of color change in "Always random color" and "Use the colors list" modes. Left value means fastest mode.
  • Use wallpaper as color source mode tells to AeroRainbow to use wallpaper as color source for Aero Glass. Windows will be colored close to the color of wallpaper.
  • Use active window as color source windows will be colored close to the color of current active window.
  • "Use only icon color" checkbox allows to use active window icon as color source for Aero instead of window itself.
  • Color calculation mode options allow to define which color of wallpaper, active window or active window icon have to be used as Aero color. It can be main color of color source (Dominate color option) or average color.

That's all. Note what AeroRainbow is portable application. Installer used only to create shortcuts.
