Change Windows 7 Background Color

Jill from AK asks:

How do I change my Windows 7 background color to better match my wallpaper? It looks awful right now!

Ah, aesthetics! You work so hard to make that Windows wallpaper as cool as possible, but the color of the background just ruins the composition!


Thankfully it’s easy to change the background color to whatever hue you like, Jill!

Let’s check it out:

First, right-click your desktop and go to Personalize. Now click Desktop Background at the bottom…

In the next window, click Change background color, located under the Picture position heading.

POP! – the Windows color picker opens up and you can choose whatever hue suits your background image’s mood!
