Choose a Vista Color Scheme

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.

This guide is included as part of the Windows Guides Customize Vista Desktop and Start Menu Series. Please visit the main page if you would like to learn why this guide may be useful.

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:

  1. Press the Start button
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Under the Appearance and Personalization section, select Customize Colors
  4. Select the color scheme you want
  5. Press OK

You can now enjoy your more personalized colors.
