    No, this can not be done easily at this time. We will have to wait and see if StarDock or someone else comes up with a solution.

    In the mean time, you can check this thread for Customizations Roundup: Apps for Customizing Win8

    I was just looking for the same feature myself. With a large screen and lots of background windows, it is hard to pick a specific window because all of the light grays just run together and the window borders are less obvious.
