    'Automatic Colour' in personalisation ceased functioning


    It's a feature I actually really like, but sadly it is now simply setting to white regardless of what desktop background I set

    I've searched on google and on these forums but can't find anything about this happening. One difficulty in working out why it stopped working is it's been so long since I changed my background that I've installed numerous things to my system since then. Of those that might have an impact somehow that I could guess are nvidia drivers, f.lux, and strobelight (A tool for forcing lightboost to work in 2D Strobelight - LightBoost Utility for AMD/ATI and NVIDIA ).

    Picking a colour manually still works fine, but it is sad to lose this feature. Any assistance greatly appreciated

    Check out this free Aero8Tuner Utility. It has an enable/disable auto colorization tick box:

    WinAero: Aero8Tuner

    Hope this helps.
