IDEA: Windows 8 window border color picker
« on: March 22, 2013, 07:20:34 PM »
Windows 8 lets you adjust the color of the window borders, but it's impossible to select an exact color.

The tool below lets you do that, but it lacks an eyedrop color picker tool.

I would love to see a simple app that lets you either pick a color from your screen with an eyedrop tool, or enter a custom color using RGB or HEX or other values, then apply that to the registry to set the color of the window borders.

1000 bonus points if it can turn the title bar text to white for use with darker colors :)

Thanks!

Looks like you need a little website where you can host your tools jf.
