Windows 10 Color Control 1.1 Description
Unlike previous iterations of Windows, Windows 10 offers a limited number of colors in its default palette. It doesnt even enclose the color mixer in Windows 8.1, which enables the user to adjust the hue, saturation and brightness of a chosen color. Windows 10 Color Control aims to solve this issue.
- Customize colors the way you want
With a self-explanatory name, this lightweight application provides instant access to the full 65,536 colors instead of the 48 presets available in Windows 10. In other words, you will be able to choose any hue you want to personalize the appearance of your working environment.
Windows 10 Color Control 1.1 gathers information about the currently selected colors, displaying them in preview mode. To pick new colors, you must press the designated button, and the familiar Colour window is instantly displayed, enabling you to find the hue you are looking for.
- Change colors and the color picking algorithm
You can pick any color you want for the window borders and for other elements, such as the taskbar and the Start Menu. Furthermore, Windows 10 Color Control 1.1 enables you to adjust the hue, saturation, RGB values and the luminance values. Changes are applied on the spot, without even requiring a Windows Explorer restart.
There is an additional option to disable the new auto-color accent algorithm (that is the term in the systems registry), which results in the usage of an alternative color picking algorithm that enables users to choose brighter colors in Windows 10.
- Enrich the color palette of Windows 10
Windows 10 Color Control 1.1 requires no installation, so you just have to double-click on the main executable to launch it. However, please note that it is not a portable app since it does affect the systems registry.
It is a good way to enrich the default color palette of Windows 10 and the personalization possibilities with it.
