Windows 11 will let you match your mouse and keyboard lighting with system accent color

Microsoft is working on native RGB controls for Windows 11, allowing you to manage your peripherals' lighting effects without installing additional apps (usually very low-quality). The feature is called "Dynamic Lighting," and it is already available for testing in Windows 11 preview builds. One of the recent updates quietly added a new option to make your RGB-enabled keyboard, mouse, headset, and other accessories match the system accent color.

@XenoPanther on Twitter X spotted the "Match my Windows accent color" option a few days ago. Later, Brandon LeBlanc, Microsoft's Senior Program Manager on the Windows Insider Program Team, confirmed that developers introduced the feature "a few builds ago without documenting it in release notes.

To make your accessories' lighting match the accent color, navigate to Settings > Personalization > Dynamic Lighting > Effects and toggle on the "Match my Windows accent color" option. As a reminder, you can only control RGB devices within the Settings app if they support the HID LampArray standard. As of right now, Windows 11 preview builds support the following devices, with more to follow:
