Windows 8:Aero Automatic Colorization

We have earlier seen the Logon screen, the Ribbon UI in windows Explorer and the PDF reader unveiled by Rafael Rivera and Paul Thurrott. Today they have unveiled a new Personalization interface in Windows 8, which allows users to customize their desktops.This feature automatically changes the color of Aero elements like the Start Menu, Windows Explorer windows, and the taskbar based on the wallpaper.

In Windows 7 when, the colorization option is limited to selection of a single color while a new option has been added in the grid of window color swatches in Windows 8 named as Automatic. This might be a small feature, though very useful for those who like to keep their own set of wallpapers as desktop backgrounds and rotate them frequently.
