Windows 8 Aero auto-colourization

In the midst of the latest Windows 8 welcome screen and ribbon UI interface leaks comes the next change to Windows 8 functionality, auto-colourization to the personalization options. Both Rafael Rivera and Paul Thurrott have been releasing secrets about the next major operating system, and today brings us one more secret, Aero auto-colourization.

This new feature, which can be found when users right click their desktop and go to personalization, allows Windows 8 to detect the colour of the wallpaper and decide what colour the taskbar, start menu and explorer aero glass colours should be.

This smart feature may be a small feature, but for users who constantly want a rotating desktop and different style aero UI to match, this will become a very useful addition. Note from the image the new colour wheel, where a previous brown shade colour has been removed to make way for this latest addition.
