I used to run Windows 8 and when I changed wallpaper the taskbar would change to a complimentary color that went with my wallpaper.

Is there a way I can get Win7 to do that? If so, how?

Thank you very much.

No, Win 7 doesn't do that automatically...

 

You can change your overall color scheme manually though.

 

Start>Control Panel>Appearance and Personalization/Change the theme.

 

Most of them are pretty cr@ppy though, but there are loads of cool free ones online you can download.

If you disable transparency (under Windows Color and Appearance) and adjust Color intensity, the colors will look better...at least they do for me.

Thanks, you guys. I did find AeroBlend that changes the taskbar to compliment the wallpaper. Its free and works pretty good. This feature is about the only one I miss with Win8.  I hated that OS...LOL
