Set Custom Color To Windows 7 Aero

You now have the option to customize the Aero Glass Effect in Windows 7 with AeroTuner. Change the color and tone of the Aero glass theme.

One of the most dazzling features of Win 7 at it’s launch was the stylish Aero Glass Effect. While it is great eye candy for it’s users, it does not provide decent tweaking options. You now have the option to customize the Aero Glass with AeroTuner. AeroTuner is a portable application (no need to install it just run it and be done) that gives a custom color and tone to Windows Aero. You are able to select custom colors for the primary Aero color and the glow color. AeroTuner works by allowing changes to the DWM parameters separately without the DWM restarting. With AeroTuner, users can change tweak color balance, blur balance, after glow color balance and Aero stripes.

There are several ways by which you can make changes to the Windows Aero effect with this program. You have the ability to either tweak a pre-selected Aero color by managing the color balance, glow, blur and Aero strip appearance. Or choose a specific color to give a unique look to the Windows Aero interface.

You can also go back to the default Aero view by going to the Personalize option (by right clicking on the desktop) and selecting any of the default Aero themes.
