The Windows Vista Aero interface is very stylish and I use it despite the extra ram required for it to run. The clear glass color can become a little boring after sometime, so Microsoft included the option to change the color of your interface. Learn, in this guide, how to change the color of your Windows using the Aero interface.

Choosing a Color Scheme with Vista Aero
Unfortunately, not all computer systems support the Windows Aero color scheme and you will need to be using Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, or Ultimate to enable Aero.
To change the color scheme, do the following:
- Press the Start button
- Select Control Panel
- Under the Appearance and Personalization section, select Customize Colors
- Select the color scheme you want
- Press OK
You can now enjoy your more personalized colors.
