Windows 7 lets you change the color of window frames, taskbar, and the Start menu with a few mouse clicks. You right-click on the desktop, click Personalize, click Color to open Color and Appearance window and then choose the color that you see on taskbar, window frames and Start menu.
The downside is that Windows doesn’t allow you set different colors to taskbar, window frames and Start menu. That is, when you select and set a color in Color and Appearance window, the new color reflects on the taskbar, window borders as well as Start menu.
