What is AeroBlend?

AeroBlend automatically changes the Windows accent color to match the current wallpaper or active application icon/contents.

When in wallpaper mode, as each wallpaper is changed, either manually or via the Windows slide-show, the Windows accent color will change to match the wallpaper.

Additionally other modes include using the active application icon, it's contents or even set the color manually by picking on the desktop or choosing a specific color.

AeroBlend uses a quick algorithm to obtain the predominant or average color of the current wallpaper, current application icon or window content. Both the Color intensity and transparency* can be customized, as well as other options.

Since version 8, Windows already has Auto-Colorization built in, why should AeroBlend be used in Windows? Find out in our head to head between AeroBlend and Windows!
