Since a few ago screenshots about Windows 8 Build 7850 has been leaked. in the middle, a feature called "Aero Aurora", which Aero theme change colours with dominant wallpaper that set in the moment.

At first it was thought that there was no this functionality in Windows 8 M1 7850, but thanks to Jc160, from Win-HD, has discovered that there is, just only disabled.

And here, the files required to activate this feature, only on Win-HD, again, thanks to the discovered investigating Jc160

Thanks, though I keep a single background, wifey will appreciate this when Win 8 comes out. No beta for her, even though I've been running 7850 as my main OS since it leaked, without issues.

@linuxlove,
Get ready!

Also, about the installation process, you just copy over the themes, right?

Not really "unlocked", just using a aero.theme from a newer build (or that has been hex edited).

Of course it's from a newer build, but the feature itself is from 7850, because where do you keep the option resources? In a theme file? No.

It depends. Which one of me are we talking about?

I think this shows that Microsoft is working on its interface for Windows 8. I wonder if the final version of Windows 8 will have a really different look than Windows 7. Remember that the early builds of Windows 7 looked just like Windows Vista.

Not really hex editing when you open it up in notepad and edit it.

The value in the theme file in question is under [VisualStyles]. It is AutoColorization, with a value of 1.

@DBlake, how do you edit the theme file? With a hex editor or with a simple text editor like notepad?

so if the feature is part of the theme then it should work on windows 7.is that correct?

UPDATE.. i just tried the Aurora them on Windows 7 32 bit and the color change feature did not work.

Uhh... Of course it doesn't work. It was first introduced in Windows 8. If it was in 7, I think we would have heard about it by now.

What you just said makes as much sense as running vista themes on xp and assuming just because the theme is inside of the theme file xp should load it without issue albeit with less of a difference in version.

well the way i read some of the posts ,people were saying nothing has been 'unlocked" because the feature is contained within the theme file, anyways its allways good to give things a try for research purpose,s.
